The National Democratic Front of the Philippines-Negros salutes the Red Commanders and fighters in their perseverance in implementing the fighting tasks ordered by the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the Filipino people in order to advance the protracted armed revolution towards strategic stalemate against US imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism.
We also salute the revolutionary martyrs who offered their lives in line of battle.
We must continue their strong revolutionary standpoint, viewpoint and methods and persevere more for the fast development and solid advance of the revolutionary cause.
[Audio clip] The militant celebration of the 43rd anniversary of the NPA last March 29 is of great significance. The NPA is tempered and strengthened and accumulated gains despite the fascist and brutal military campaigns by the past and present US puppet regimes’ series of AFP and PNP operation plans.
The basic truth here is that the NPA’s upholding of revolutionary principles, line, strategy and tactics that were outlined and made clear by the CPP means the continuity of the armed revolution. On the other hand if grave errors will be committed this will mean setbacks for the revolutionary forces just like what happened in 1980s on the wrong line of military adventurism, urban insurrection, reformism and capitulation.
The advance of the revolutionary war bannering the line of the liberation and development of the forces of production against comprador bourgeoisie and landlords as agents of US imperialism will truly succeed. In the near future, the people will reap the victory of the completion of the national democratic revolution.
