Solidarity with the 9th Congress of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) extends its revolutionary greetings to the 9th Congress of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO). We are confident that the leaders and members of the FRSO will steer the congress to success and make it serve as inspiration and guide for the working class and toiling people of the USA in waging resistance against class exploitation and all other forms of oppression.
The CPP congratulates the FRSO for its steadfast promotion of Marxism-Leninism and the continued growth of its organization. We look forward to your plans to establish a national office as an important step towards establishing FRSO branches in more cities across the United States.
The CPP and revolutionary forces in the Philippines deeply appreciate the important role being played by the FRSO in the rising mass struggles across the United States, including the widespread protest movement that followed the murder of George Floyd in 2020, and in the growing workers’ movement.
In the United States, as well as in the Philippines and across the world, the monopoly capitalist banks and corporations are intensifying the exploitation of workers and other toiling classes, and aggravating the oppression of peoples and entire nations.
In the face of heightening rivalry with other rising imperialist powers, the US is intensifying armed conflicts and instigating wars which cause widespread destruction to lives, livelihood and the environment.
While the US and other imperialist countries resort to increasingly protectionist policies, neocolonial economic measures are imposed on backward neocolonial countries. These are subjugated and subjected to wholesale imperialist plunder of resources, exploitation of workers, dumping of surplus commodities and unmitigated export of capital in the form of loans.
The CPP celebrates every achievement and victory of the FRSO as we collectively resist against our common enemy. In the same way, the achievements and victories of the CPP and the Philippine revolution are its own contributions to the general effort of the oppressed and exploited peoples to advance the cause socialist and national democratic revolutions.
