Aktibong depensahan ang mamamayan at biguin ang March offensive ng AFP

Isa na namang magastos na pambansang opensiba ang ilulunsad ng AFP at PNP ngayong Marso. Pakikilusin nito ang mga tropa at kagamitan sa malakihang mga operasyong kombat at pambobomba mula sa himpapawid laban sa BHB at laban sa masang magsasaka at minoryang mamamayan. Sa nagdaang mga taon, naglulunsad ang AFP ng pinatindinding mga opensiba tuwing Marso at Disyembre. Walang-saysay itong umaasa na mapipigilan ang rebolusyonaryong mga pwersa at mamamayan na ipagdiwang ang anibersaryo ng pagkakatatag ng Partido at BHB.

Expose spate of AFP fake news

Trotskyites regurgitate military lies around Plaza Miranda bombing

Over the past few months, the American Trotskyite zealot Joseph Scalice has staged one attack after another to vilify the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP).

This time, he will regurgitate the long-exposed falsehoods of the Philippine military and US CIA claiming that the Party is behind the grenade throwing during the August 21, 1971 rally of the Liberal […]

National freedom has no price tag

The Filipino people were seriously disgusted by President Rodrigo Duterte’s February 12 speech where he declared “if America requires the presence of their troops here, I’m okay with that” under the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA)–as long as they pay with military weapons.
