In spite of the Tiamzon couple’s capture, the People’s Democratic Revolution will advance!

By JORGE MADLOS (Ka Oris)
Spokesperson, NDFP Mindanao Chapter

We condemn in the strongest terms possible the arrest of the Tiamzon couple because as major consultants to the peace talks between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GPH) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), they are immune to arrest as clearly stipulated under a bilaterally signed agreement between the GPH and the NDFP, the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG). Wilma Austria is a certified JASIG holder with Identification ND 978826 under her real name, while Benito Tiamzon holds JASIG Identification ND 978227 under the name “Crising Banaag”. In compliance with said agreement between the GPH and the NDFP and as an act of sincerity on the part of the Aquino government in attaining peace, it is imperative that the Tiamzon couple and five of their companions be released without condition.

More reasons to advance the people’s war in Southern Mindanao

By RIGOBERTO SANCHEZ
Spokesperson, NPA Merardo Arce Command
NPA Southern Mindanao Regional Operations Command

The capture of Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria only emboldens the New People’s Army in Southern Mindanao to further intensify the people’s war in the region. The US-Aquino regime is daydreaming when it says the arrest spells the demise of the revolutionary movement. The NPA-SMR is ever resolute to advance the guerrilla war to a higher stage because the roots of armed conflict are firmly embedded in a region heavily militarized by the fascist troops of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Founding Chairman, Communist Party of the Philippines

By ROSELLE VALERIO
Liberation International

Roselle Valerio (RV): What was your immediate reaction to the arrest of Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria?

Jose Maria Sison (JMS): I thought immediately that the arrest of these two NDFP consultants in the peace negotiations is in violation of the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG). They are holders of the document of identification under JASIG and are protected from surveillance, harassment and arrest.
