Objection to US bomb and missile donation to Duterte terror regime

We vehemently object to the Trump government’s “donation” of $18 million worth of bombs and missiles that will exarcerbate the Duterte regime’s dirty war against the people. The war matériel was received by the AFP last Monday. We demand the […]

Papaigting ang Rebolusyon sa panahon ng “new normal”

Sa panahon ng ‘new normal, nananatiling tumpak at makatarungan ang pagsusulong ng demokratikong rebolusyong bayan hanggang sa ganap nitong tagumpay.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today lambasted the Duterte regime and the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) for using the senate hearing on red-tagging as a platform to justify and escalate its anti-communist witchunting and crackdown against political parties under the Makabayan bloc and other democratic mass organizations. The second hearing was held yesterday after progressive lawmakers opted to skip the first hearing on November 3 and requested for a separate hearing without […]

Objection to US bomb and missile donation to Duterte terror regime

We vehemently object to the Trump government’s “donation” of $18 million worth of bombs and missiles that will exarcerbate the Duterte regime’s dirty war against the people. The war matériel was received by the AFP last Monday. We demand the incoming Biden regime to take action against continuing US military support for Duterte’s state terrorist regime and his reign of human rights abuses. We call for an end to the US “enduring commitment” and “critical alliance” with the Duterte regime, […]

Comments on Tribune of the People’s “Open Letter” to the CPP

Last November 13, a website that calls itself the “Tribune of the People” (TOP) published as its editorial the article “To Celebrate Biden’s Victory is Incompatible with Anti-Imperialism: An Open Letter to the Communist Party of the Philippines.” The “Open Letter” deserves critical repudiation by the CPP, especially since it was authored by a group that claims to be Maoist and anti-revisionist. It must be exposed as ultra-“Left” phrase-mongering that has nothing to do with Maoism. Beneath the revolutionary rhetoric, […]

Undo the Marcos hero’s burial fraud

Four years ago today, the tyrant Duterte ordered a hero’s burial for the dictator Marcos. Today, as one of the major forces that fought to dismantle the Marcos dictatorship, the Party vows to work perseveringly to undo this act of fraud and ignominy and to push until complete justice is achieved. The Party will support the demand for the dictator’s remains to be exhumed and removed from the Libingan ng mga Bayani and for it to be incinerated. The Party […]

Protest Duterte’s neglect and indifference to people’s plight amid disaster

Read in: Pilipino The Filipino people are outraged by Duterte and his government officials’ display of utter disinterest and indifference to the plight of millions of victims of the five storms that successively hit Luzon and other parts of the country over the past three weeks. Amid their sufferings, millions of Filipinos witnessed firsthand the worthlessness of the national government. While they faced the storm and floods, Duterte and his officials were practically non-existent. Millions struggled on their own, or […]

Kundenahin ang kapabayaan at pagwawalambahala ni Duterte sa suliranin ng bayan sa harap ng kalamidad

Read in: English Nagngangalit ang mamamayang Pilipino kay Duterte at sa kanyang mga upisyal sa gubyerno sa labis na pagpapabayakawalang interes at kawalang-pakialam sa suliranin ng milyong biktima ng limang bagyong sunud-sunod na bumayo sa Luzon at ibang bahagi ng bansa sa nagdaang tatlong linggo.

Duterte regime is accountable for severe impact of devastation

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today said that devastation of the millions of Filipino lives and livelihood is not solely caused by the successive storms but also by the reactionary state’s failure to sufficiently prepare for and respond to the calamities. The Party urged the people to hold the Duterte regime accountable for its neglect to undertake disaster preparedness efforts to mitigate the impact of natural calamities. Typhoon Ulysses lashed at Luzon yesterday and caused severe flooding in […]

November 18, 2020

The ecological debacle that the Philippines is currently facing is characterized by floods, landslides and mudslides which devastated vast areas in Luzon at the heels of successive typhoons in the past few weeks. The culprits are easily identifiable—mega dams stopping the flow of rivers, alongside historical denudation of the country’s mountains. Alongside their demand for social justice, a wide array of democratic sectors are clamoring for environmental justice. They demand an end to the plunder and destruction of the environment […]

People’s real conditions negate NEDA’s “worst is over” assessment
November 11, 2020

The Filipino people are not assured by the Duterte regime’s economic managers’ claim that “the worst is over for the country,” as they continue to bear the brunt of the sharp economic crisis caused by the Duterte regime’s failed pandemic response as well as the impact of successive typhoons which slammed the country in recent weeks. These claims of Socioeconomic Planning Sec. Karl Kendrick Chua made yesterday are completely out of touch with the realities of the broad masses of […]

AFP squanders P1.2 million daily in Mindanao combat ops amid severe learning modules shortage
October 02, 2020

That the Duterte regime would rather fund bombs than books is clearly demonstrated in Mindanao, where the military is on a spending spree in its relentless counterinsurgency campaign. Here, the regime spends at least P1.2 million daily in focused military operations, all while refusing to allocate sufficient funds for basic self-learning modules (SLM) for students. NPA reports show an estimated total of P418 million was spent on combat operations since May in three Mindanao regions alone. These funds could have […]

Unite the people to make Duterte regime answer for its neglect

Millions of Filipinos openly saw the criminal neglect of Rodrido Duterte’s government amid devastation brought by typhoons Quinta, Rolly and Ulysses. As they drowned in floods and rains, Duterte comfortably slept through his responsibilities and duties. To coverup his failings, he blamed victims for supposedly not heeding warnings by authorities. Worse, he chided those who extended help and threatened those who protested the negligence. Duterte failed to coordinate different agencies and local units, quickly put in place measures and and […]
