Revolutionary forces celebrated the 52nd founding anniversary of the New People’s Army (NPA) on March 29 amid the relentless operations of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
Celebrations were conducted in the countryside and urban areas in Southern Tagalog in the face of the worsening fascist attacks of the Duterte regime in the region. Participants braved the heavy troops deployed in the area to reach the NPA headquarters in the region. In urban areas, revolutionary forces echoed calls on the NPA to serve revolutionary justice for the victims of the regime’s terorrism.
The NPA-Negros paid tribute to all Red fighters and commanders for their victories and perservering in the path of the armed struggle. From only 60 forces that were left at the outset of the Second Great Rectification Movement, the NPA now has five guerrilla fronts deployed across the region, from northern to southern Negros.
“Pakyas ang US-Duterte!” (The US-Duterte regime failed!) was the introductory message of the NDF-Northeastern Mindanao Region in its celebration. The Regional Operations Command called on the NPA to overcome their weaknesses including military conservatism. It reported about four big tactical offensives in Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur wherein high powered rifles were seized.
A program was also held by Red fighters in the Southern Mindanao Region.
