Mensahe sa Ika-7 Kongreso ng Migrante International Ni Prop. Jose Maria Sison Tagapangulo International League of Peoples’ Struggle Disyembre 16, 2014 Ang internasyonal na pamunuan at lahat ng kasaping-organisasyon ng International League of Peoples’ Struggle ay  nagpapaabot ng taos pusong  pagbati at militanteng pakikiisa sa Migrante International sa ika-7 Kongreso nito.  Humahanga kami sa inyong mga tagumpay at hinahangad naming umani pa kayo ng ibayong tagumpay batay sa inyong kasalukuyang lakas at sa inyong paglalagom at pagbabalak sa  kongresong ito. Napakahalaga at napapanahon ang tema ng inyong kongreso: Labanan ang Pangamgalakal at Pangaalipin sa Pilipino sa Ibayong Dagat at sa kanilang Pamilya! Isanib ang Lumalakas na Kilusang Migranteng Pilipino sa Daluyong ng Mamamayan para sa Tunay na Pagbabago!” Karapat-dapat na magpursigi ang Migrante International sa pagpupukaw, pag-oorganisa at pagpapakilos ng mga migranteng manggagawang Pilipino upang labanan ang pang-aapi at pagsasamantala sa kanila at  ipagtanggol at isulong ang kanilang mga karapatan at kapakanan at upang itaguyod ang tunay na pagbabago sa Pilipinas at pag-unlad nang sa gayon magkatrabaho sila sa sariling bayan imbes na umalis sa bayan at mapahiwalay sa pamilya. Dahil sa kawalan ng pag-unlad ng ekonomiya ng Pilipinas sa pamamagitan ng tunay na reporma sa lupa at pambansang industryalisasyon,  sapilitang  nagtratrabaho ang milyun-milyong kababayan natin sa ibang bansa.  Patakaran ng rehimeng Aquino na pasidhiin at pabilisin ang pangangalakal at pang-aalipin sa Pilipino sa ibayong dagat.  Patunay ito ng paglubha ng disempleo at pagbagsak ng kita sa bansa. Ipinagmamalaki ng rehimen ang lumalaking foreign exchange remittance ng mga migranteng manggagawa.  Umaabot na ito sa antas ng USD 28 billion at mga 8.7 porsyento ng  Gross National Product (GNP). Mas malaki pa kaysa bahagi ng tradisyonal na iniluluwas na produktong agrikultural. Sa pangkalahatan,  pangsustento ito sa mga pamilya ng mga migranteng manggagawa ang foreign exchange remittances nila. Matapos na maipalit sa [more]

JOSE MARIA SISON’S LATEST BOOK LAUNCHED IN THE NETHERLANDS

04/12/2014 // 0 Comments

Detention and Defiance Against Dictatorship, the latest book of Jose Maria Sison, was launched on December 3, 2014 at the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Information Office in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The book contains Sison’s selected writings while in detention in 1977-1986 during the notorious Marcos dictatorship. The book launching was co-organized by the Filipino Refugees in the Netherlands (FREN), International Network for Philippine Studies (INPS) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Information Office to coincide with the commemoration of the International Day of Solidarity with Political Prisoners. The event was well-attended by Filipino and international guests. They were treated to a short program of interesting speeches and cultural numbers. Prominent Dutch lawyer Michiel Pestman, Rose Bernabe PhD, and NDFP Political Consultant Vic Ladlad gave very interesting book reviews. Julieta de Lima-Sison, Chairperson of the INPS, publisher of the book, spoke about the project of the INPS to publish 5 volumes of Sison’s selected writings spanning different periods of his life. The latest book contains Sison’s writings while in detention during the Marcos dictatorship. These writings were smuggled out from prison through the most creative of means to evade the watchful eyes of guards assigned to secure the dictator’s most prized political prisoner. According to De Lima-Sison, his writings were an expression of Sison’s defiance against the oppressive dictatorship despite the various types of torture he endured without being broken. His writings while in prison served as guide to the revolutionary movement outside the prison walls that played a key role in the eventual overthrow of the Marcos dictatorship in 1986. Michiel Pestman has been Sison’s long-time lawyer in some of his difficult cases. In 2007, he successfully defended Sison and caused his release from detention in The Hague on trumped-up charges instigated by Manila. [more]
