1. The Duterte regime is hell-bent on using state terrorism under the pretext of anti-terrorism in order to impose fascist dictatorship on the Filipino people, prolong his rule in the style of Marcos beyond the constitutional limit on the presidential term of office and preserve the unjust semicolonial and semifeudal ruling system. This is a system dominated by foreign monopoly capitalism and run by the local exploiting classes of big compradors, landlords and bureaucrat capitalists to which the Duterte family, […]

Intensify democratic and anti-imperialist struggles under Biden government

With his inauguration today as new US president, Joe Biden takes over the reins of the most powerful imperialist state in the world. He starts his regime as the US and the global capitalist economy reel from crisis and recessions and as interimperialist conflicts intensify with rival powers seeking to protect their global economic interests and expand their hegemony. Key factors that can play into the prospects of waging democratic and anti-imperialist struggles under the new Biden regime, include the […]

Defend UP against Duterte’s fascism and state terror

Read in: Pilipino The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) joins the UP community in denouncing Defense Sec. Delfin Lorenzana for unilaterally abrogating the 1989 UP-DND agreement. The move to abrogate the agreement clearly aims to impose fear and terror and place the university under the tyrannical power of Duterte’s military and police. It is an attack against the UP community which has squarely opposed the authoritarianism of the Duterte regime. It wants to make the university bow before the […]

Ipagtanggol ang UP laban sa pasismo at terorismo ng estado ni Duterte

Read in: English Nakikiisa ang Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas sa pamayanang UP sa pagtuligsa kay Defense Sec. Delfin Lorenzana sa unilateral o isang-panig na pagwawakas nito sa kasunduang UP-DND ng 1989. Ang pagpapawalambisa sa kasunduan ay malinaw na layong maghasik ng takot at teror at isailalim ang unibersidad sa tiranikong kapangyarihan ng militar at pulis ni Duterte. Pananalakay ito sa komunidad ng UP na matatag na lumalaban sa awtoritaryanismo ng rehimeng Duterte. Layong nitong payukuin sa tirano ang unibersidad. Dapat […]

Remarks on Skyway 3 and other infrastructure projects

Duterte’s officials have been praising themselves non-stop the past few days following the inauguration of the project.

Pagbabago sa mga probisyong pang-ekonomya lang, hindi nakababawas sa kasamaan ng chacha

Read in: English Hindi nababawasan ang kasamaan ng “chacha” kahit pa sabihin ng mga pinuno sa Mababang Kapulungan na mga prubisyon sa ekonomya lang ang kanilang babaguhin sa konstitusyong 1987. Ang planong idambana sa konstitusyon ng Pilipinas ang pang-ekonomyang liberalisasyon, sa katunayan, ay mas mapaminsala sa pangmatagalan, kaysa sa tinutuligsang pag-amyenda sa mga prubisyong pampulitika para palawigin ang tiraniya ni Duterte at ang termino ng mga pulitiko, gayundin para patayin ang sistemang party-list. Ang deklaradong layuning pagbibigay sa mga kapitalistang […]

Economic-only changes doesn’t make “chacha” less evil

Read in: Pilipino Assurances made by leaders of the House of Representatives that their push for amending the 1987 constitution will be limited only to economic provisions does not make the plan less evil. The plan to enshrine economic liberalization in the Philippine constitution, in fact, is more deleterious in the long-term, more than the much assailed political amendments to perpetuate Duterte’s tyranny and extend the terms of politicos, as well as the scheme to kill the party-list system. The […]

Halos isang buwan mula nang simulan ang malawakang pagbabakuna sa iba’t ibang panig ng mundo, wala pang isinasagawang hakbangin ang gubyernong Duterte para tiyaking mapoproteksyunan ang malaking bahagi ng populasyon ng Pilipinas sa Covid-19. Katunayan, walang balak ang gubyerno ni Duterte na manguna sa ganitong malawakang pagbabakuna. Sa badyet ng […]
