  • ON THE CONVICTION OF CORONA AND RELATED MATTERS


    Interview of Prof. Jose Maria Sison
    Chief Political Consultant
    Negotiating Panel
    National Democratic Front of the Philippines

    By Gerg Cahiles
    Reporter of Solar News

    Ka Joma, I would like to get your insights on Corona’s removal from the SC through impeachment.

    Here are some questions:

    1. What is your analysis on the removal of Corona from the SC? What do you think are the factors why the Aquino regime is very eager on this  matter?

    Answer: The removal of Corona is a manifestation and offshoot of the conflict between the Aquino yellow gang in power and the Arroyo gang. It is more specifically about Noy Aquino punishing Corona for the Supreme Court decision on Hacienda Luisita. Most importantly, it is strategically about taking over the Supreme Court and dominating the  reactionary government. Read more

  • AQUINO IS HYPOCRITICAL ABOUT PEACE NEGOTIATIONS
    AND PLANS TO TERMINATE THESE NEXT YEAR OR EARLIER


    National Democratic Front of the Philippines
    Negotiating Panel
    Press Statement

     By Fidel V. Agcaoili
    Spokesperson of NDFP Panel Negotiating with the GPH (GRP)
    19 May 2012

     

    We in the Negotiating Panel of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) deplore recent statements made by GPH President Aquino against the NDFP and its Chief Political Consultant Prof. Jose Maria Sison. He made such recent statements in an interview with Radyo Bombo and this has been further circulated by certain newspapers.

    Aquino practically accuses the NDFP of insincerity as the obstacle to peace. He exposes himself as the hypocrite who pays lip service to peace but is in fact obsessed with carrying out a brutal war under the US-instigated Oplan Bayanihan. He is not at all interested in serious peace negotiations but only in demanding the surrender and pacification of the revolutionary forces and people. Read more
