MY ANCESTORS IN THE REVOLUTION


Published in National Midweek, Vol. 1, No. 28, July 2, 1986

July 2, 1986

A book by William Henry Scott, Ilocano Responses to American Aggression 1900-1901 (Quezon City, New Day Publishers, 1986), save from almost total oblivion the just and heroic struggle of the Ilocanos against the US imperialism which reached the Ilocos at the turn of the century. As an account of the Ilocano guerrilla war which followed the dissolution of the regular forces of the Philippine revolutionary army, the book adds zest and drama to the retelling of the entire Filipino people’s struggle for national freedom. The Ilocano resistance was a major part of that struggle.

A BORDERLESS BROTHERHOOD: Exploring A Planetary Consciousness In Revolutionary Literature

School Year 2014 – 2015
Professor Ma. Gabriela P. Martin

Abstract: This paper aims to do a comparative study of the poetry of Jose Maria Sison, the Chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines, and Mao Zedong, the founding father of the People’s Republic of China, and present a planetary relationship between the two, both in terms of their poetry and their political ideologies. The paper uses Spivak’s notion of teleopoiesis, the unheimlich, and planetarity as a foundation to reveal a planetary relationship between the two poets through an analysis of the tropes of the peasant soldier and the countryside present in both poet’s works. The paper utilizes the unheimlich as a field for productive difference, estrangement, or alienation that courts Spivak’s notion of planetarity. In terms of a comparative study of Mao and Joma, planetarity presents itself through the unfamiliar, or the un – Filipino that is presented through the Chinese ideals Sison’s poetry because of the influence of Mao Zedong thought.

I’ve highlighted some revolutionary art and culture before. I’ve posted Rage Against the Machine’s acapella perfomance at the RNC protest this September, and the Sendoro Luminoso inspired video for the song Bombtrack. I’ve highlighted the music of Julian Conrado of the FARC-EP. Yesterday I posted an article about the outstanding Palestinian writer and PFLP martyr, Ghassan Kanafani. Today I want to highlight the beautiful poetry and songs of the Filipino revolutionary leader, Jose Maria Sison.
