On Independence Day, the Filipino people must renew their commitment to the National Democratic Revolution with a socialist perspective, the path to real independence
By JORGE MADLOS
Spokesperson, NDFP Mindanao
For decades, past and the present reactionary Philippine governments foist the celebration of Independence Day upon the Filipino people, compelling us to accept, hook, line and sinker, that the nation is “free” from the control of any dominant country. This, of course, is the biggest LIE that has been oft-repeatedly rammed by the ruling classes of landlords and compradors, and by US imperialism itself, down the throats of the Filipino masses.
