On the Taliban victory and defeat of US occupation of Afghanistan

The Taliban blitzkrieg and retaking of government power in Afghanistan is the expected outcome of the planned withdrawal of US forces marking the end of the failed and much detested US imperialist war. In the span of just one week, the Taliban captured all the provincial capitals and cities, as well as all border crossings, […]

NTF-ELCAC terror-tagging business, politicians to set stage for extortion

The National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) is setting the stage for its drive to extort and intimidate business firms and politicians after announcing yesterday that some of them have been giving support to the revolutionary movement and can be charged under the Anti-Terrorism Law (ATL). This is clearly another case […]

Drilon investigation into NTF-ELCAC funds is welcome

The push by Sen. Franklin Drilon to investigate the ₱19.2-billion budget of theNational Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) is a welcome move. The broad sectors of the people demand a stop to how their money is being squandered on wasteful and corrupt counterinsurgency operations and white elephant projects. We maintain that the […]

Duterte used VFA as bargaining chip for US support for his tyranny

The announcement today that the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) will no longer be abrogated confirms that earlier pretend threats to terminate it is mere play-acting by Duterte to shamelessly and treacherously use the VFA and Philippine sovereignty as bargaining chip in his demand for more military aid to support his tyrannical regime. It is clear […]

On Gen. Esperon’s wild imagination that “NPAs are tired of fighting”

I wonder why Gen. Esperon continues to serve in key positions of the defense establishment, when for around two decades now (except during the Benigno Aquino period), he has proved himself utterly incompetent having fared poorly at the helm of the government’s militarist counterinsurgency drive. He has been a continuing failure since the Arroyo regime with […]

The deployment of 51 of 82 Philippine National Police (PNP) Quezon City Police District personnel who were later discovered to be positive for Covid-19 as part of anti-riot phalanx against protesters last Monday along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City was a shameless act of public endangerment. The said police personnel were tested on July 23, […]

Duterte promised peace, but delivered war

In his first state of the nation address, then newly-elected president Rodrigo Duterte promised the country peace, and emphatically added, “not the peace of the dead, but the peace of the living.” It was an epic lie. Not a year into his term, he delivered all-out war from Luzon to Mindanao, against the poor, against […]

On Duterte’s “terrorist designation” of NDFP

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) enjoins all patriotic and democratic forces and advocates of justice and peace both here and abroad to unite and firmly denounce the US-Duterte regime and its “Anti-Terrorism Council” (ATC) for its “terrorist designation” of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) in its Resolution No. 21 issued last June 23.

Hinggil sa “teroristang designasyon” ni Duterte sa NDFP

Hinihimok ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ang lahat ng patriyotiko at demokratikong pwersa at lahat ng nagtataguyod ng hustisya at kapayapaan kapwa sa loob at labas ng bansa na magkaisa at mahigpit na tuligsain ang rehimeng US-Duterte at kanyang “Anti-Terrorism Council” (ATC) sa ginawang “teroristang designasyon” nito sa National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) sa inilabas na Resolution No. 21 noong Hunyo 23.
