    Since the horrendous attack of Nazi Germany, the great anti-fascist victory of the Soviet Union and the socialist reconstruction after World War II, Ukraine has suffered a series of catastrophes in so many decades: the rise of modern revisionism and gradual restoration of capitalism from the late 1950s onwards leading to the rapid full-scale restoration of capitalism and collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and the social and economic devastation of the Ukraine as the Mafia-type bourgeoisie fully privatized the economy, exploited the people with impunity and carried out the neoliberal economic policy of boundless greed.

    February 19, 2014

    The International League of  Peoples’ Struggle condemns the US and its puppets in Venezuela for causing artificial  shortages of certain basic goods and inflation and inciting  crimes and sham protests aimed at destabilizing  the Bolivarian government of President Nicolas Maduro.

    The malicious scheme of the US and its puppets headed by Leopoldo Lopez is to  fabricate conditions for a military coup against the government which was duly-elected last April.  President Maduro is justified in taking the necessary steps against the US and local malefactors in the coup scheme.

    By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
    Founding Chairman, Kabataang Makabayan
    February 12, 2014

    Dear Fellow Activists,

    Thank you for requesting me to address a message to your forum concerning the Kabataang Makabayan.  I am happy, as I presume,  that you are already in the process of preparing  for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of this glorious youth organization, which has played such a great role in Philippine history up to now.

    It is appropriate that you recall the KM in connection with the current celebration of the First Quarter Storm of 1970 and the Diliman Commune of 1971.  In these events, the KM and other youth organizations brought to an unprecedented high point the patriotic and progressive youth movement that had developed in the entire 1960s.

    FROM THE NATIONAL UNION OF PEOPLE’S LAWYERS


    The National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL) is delighted and honored to express our warmest greetings to Prof. Jose Ma. Sison on the occasion of his 75th birthday as well as his 55th anniversary as a patriot and revolutionary.

    Unknown to many, Ka Joma could have been a member of the Bar himself if only he followed his father’s wishes to become a lawyer, marry into a rich family, and enter politics. With his intellect and eloquence, he could have made a top-calibre attorney whose skills can make other lawyers look like first year law students in the courtroom, or a politician with tremendous powers, like a Philippine president. His incomparable thoroughness, adroit language skills and comprehensive outlook, not to mention his admirable discipline at work, qualified him to be the best people’s lawyer we never had.
