National Democratic Front: Armed struggle of the NPA and the people is a Just war

Standard

The following statement below was originally published by the Communist Party of the Philippines

The CPP-NPA and the NDF are engaged in a just revolutionary war. The justness of this revolutionary war addresses the fundamental interests of the people especially the workers and the peasants who have long aspired for freedom and democracy, true development and a just and enduring peace.

The US-Aquino and its AFP/PNP are widely boasting their “victory” in the first year (2011) implementation of the Oplan Bayanihan against the revolutionary movement nationwide. They popularized their fantasy-statistics on the decrease of the armed strength of the NPA, dismantling of the targeted guerrilla fronts, waning of the mass base and isolation from the support of the people. They go beyond predicting that come 2016, after the term of P-Noy the revolutionary forces will be reduced to strategic insignificance.

The local reactionaries in Negros, particularly Alfredo Maranon Jr and the military officers under the Central Command-AFP Visayas and the 3rd Infantry Division, Phil Army have parroted the official propaganda psywar line of the US-Aquino and the AFP. They repeatedly declare that there are only 212 NPAs left in Negros after their “victorious” military campaign in 2011 that has resulted in several “surrenders”, AWOL, captured and KIA of officers and members of the Red Army.

The people of Negros know how to find the truth. The people can never be deceived by lies and disinformation being peddled by the class enemy. The people have been honed in 43 years of civil war in the country. They are conscious and have persevered in the protracted armed and unarmed, legal and illegal struggle against the exploitative and repressive semi-colonial and semi-feudal system.
