• ON THE ARREST OF BENITO TIAMZON AND WILMA AUSTRIA

    By ROSELLE VALERIO
    Liberation International

    Roselle Valerio (RV): What was your immediate reaction to the arrest of Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria?

    Jose Maria Sison (JMS): I thought immediately that the arrest of these two NDFP consultants in the peace negotiations is in violation of the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG). They are holders of the document of identification under JASIG and are protected from surveillance, harassment and arrest. Read more

  • WOMEN OF THE WORLD, UNITE
    AGAINST IMPERIALIST GLOBALIZATION


    By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
    Chairperson
    International League of Peoples’ Struggle
    March 8, 2014

    Imperialism is destroying the lives of women. It is aggravating the exploitation of women and intensifying attacks on women’s rights. Through the quintuple  neoliberal policies of pressing down wages, liberalization,  privatization, deregulation and denationalization, imperialism has reversed whatever gains the working women’s movement has gained in more than a century of struggles. This is the context of our International Women’s Day Commemoration this year. Read more



  • ILPS EXPOSES AND CONDEMNS NATURE AND PURPOSES
    OF NUCLEAR SECURITY SUMMITS INITIATED BY THE US


    By Prof. Jose Maria Sison

    Chairperson, International League of Peoples’ Struggle

This kind of summit pretends to prevent nuclear terrorism but in fact aims to promote and strengthen the oligopoly of nuclear weapons by the imperialist powers headed by the US. These are the real megaterrorists who deceptively accuse of nuclear terrorism those states and other entities outside of their orbit. Read more
