In behalf of the entire Philippine revolutionary movement, the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) extends deep sympathies to the wife and children of Ka Fidel V. Agcaoili, chairperson of the Negotiating Panel of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).
Ka Fidel, 75, died yesterday in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
Filipino communists and revolutionaries feel a deep sense of sorrow and loss with Ka Fidel’s passing. He was one of the most beloved and respected leaders of the Party, the NDFP and the Filipino people.
Over the past decades, from the underground movement, to inside prison, to international work and peace negotiations, Ka Fidel untiringly struggled with the Filipino people and served the revolutionary movement and all the oppressed and exploited classes to achieve national and social liberation.
At all times, Ka Fidel firmly upheld the principles of the Party. He was imbued with the communist spirit to his last breath.
The Party and all revolutionary forces, including all Red fighters of the New People’s Army, are in mourning.
In the coming days, the Party will announce the day for mourning, giving honor, and remembering Ka Fidel.
