Aquino lacks sincerity in peace negotiations and has wantonly violated existing agreements

By Prof. JOSE MARIA SISON
NDFP Chief Political Consultant
in Peace Negotiations with the GPH/GRP

The recent statement of BS Aquino III to Radyo Bombo and published in the Philippine Daily Inquirer attacking the National Democratic Front of the Philippines and seeking to impose on the NDFP his one-sided views has upset efforts to pave the way for the resumption of the GPH-NDFP peace negotiations.

It is Aquino who lacks sincerity in peace negotiations between the GPH* and NDFP.

On the 4th Anniversary of Black Valentine’s Day Arrest

By ALAN JAZMINES
Consultant, National Democratic Front of the Philippines

I was arrested four years ago – on Black Valentine’s Day – on the eve of the long-stalled resumption of the formal peace talks between the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP/GPH).

The principal agenda in the would-be resumption of the formal peace talks was supposed to center on the second of the four substantive agenda in the NDFP-GRP/GPH peace talks, i.e., on Comprehensive Socio-Economic Reforms (CASER).

On Justice Guariña’s “Economic Nationalism: Voices from the Past”

By ALAN JAZMINES
Member, NDFP Reciprocal Working Committe on Socio-Economic Reforms

The very well-written article Economic Nationalism: Voices from the Past (Commentary, Philippine Daily Inquirer, 24 September 2014) was for me quite refreshing, considering that it was surprisingly written by a former high court official, retired Court of Appeals Associate Justice Mario Guariña III.

The article itself is a rarity at this time of the profligacy and dominance of neoliberalism in policy, word and rule in the country.

NDFP proposes people’s issues for peace talks, demands compliance with JASIG, other agreements

By LUIS G. JALANDONI
Chairperson, NDFP Negotiating Panel
Member, NDFP National Executive Committee

Secretary Deles wishes to avoid the Aquino regime’s obligation to comply with binding peace agreements which the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP/GPH) signed with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). Her lame excuse is to call compliance with the 1995 Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG) as mere “procedural matters”.

The NDFP Reciprocal Working Committee Perspective on Social and Economic Reforms

A publication of the NDFP Human Rights Monitoring Committee
August 2009

The second item in the substantive agenda of the peace negotiations is social and economic reforms. It came second in the agenda only because there was the need to first “humanize” the armed conflict by binding the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) to observe human rights and international humanitarian law in the conduct of the armed conflict.
