If the Aquino regime and its military mercenaries know how to read, they can find out from the 46th anniversary statement of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Philppines that the New People’s Army in Mindanao has succeeded in luring in, preoccupying and overcoming 60 per cent of the enemy military forces and that the regional commands of the NPA in the Visayas and Luzon can now make their tactical offensives more often and more fruitfully. The corrupt Aquino regime and rotten ruling system of big compradors and landlords like the Aquino dynasty need the peace negotiations more than the revolutionary government and mass movement of peasants and workers do. If the reactionaries do not like peace negotiations, the revolutionaries are more than happy to accommodate them.

ND: Happy New Year sir! I read your Q&A with the NDCP executive course students
JMS: Happy 2015 and best wishes!
ND: I was struck by your answers because one, some of the policies you mentioned if you would become president are the same policies being followed now by government.
JMS: The general titles of the policies that I have mentioned and proposed are indeed similar to those used by the GPH and are used as subjects for the agenda of the peace negotiations. But the GPH and NDFP differ in substantiating the titles or subjects. For instance, the NDFP points out under the rubric of national sovereignty and independence the need to do away with unequal treaties, agreements and arrangements with foreign powers. Under the rubric of economic development, the NDFP stresses Filipino-owned industrialization and genuine land reform. The differences in the substantiation of policies are subject to negotiations and consensus for the benefit of the Filipino people.

Jose Maria Sison, Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chair, does not discount the possibility of meeting with President Benigno Aquino III to jump-start peace talks with the government, a confidence-building measure reminiscent of the Chief Executive’s secret meeting with Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) chief Murad Ebrahim.
