PAMPHLET: GRANT PERMANENT RESIDENCE TO PROF. SISON!

-

Prof. Jose Maria Sison was born on 8 February 1939 in the Philippines
He has been living for more than 23 years in Utrecht, The Netherlands. First as Utrecht University
research consultant since 1987, and then as a political refugee since 1988.
Yet, he is not allowed:

  1. to have permanent residence
  2. to have a living allowance or to have a job
  3. to have housing under his name
  4. to have regular health insurance as refugee
  5. to have social insurance and old age pension
  6. to travel freely outside of the country, particularly in Europe

Let Prof. Sison live a normal life!
Grant permanent residence!
Let him have basic human rights!
Grant permanent residence to Prof. Jose Maria Sison!

Joma Sison is a recognized political refugee under the Geneva Refugee Convention,
specifically under its Article 1A.

He has lawfully and peacefully lived in The Netherlands for more than 23 years.

He has never committed any criminal act against the public order and national security of
the Dutch state or any other European state. The European Court of Justice has ruled that
he is not a terrorist and has removed him from the blacklist of the European Union.

Because of his staunch opposition to the Philippine government, his passport was
cancelled while visiting the Netherlands in 1988. Since then, he has been requesting the
Netherlands to grant him asylum and a residence permit.

Just like other long-time residents of the Netherlands, he should be granted a residence
permit. He must be granted his basic rights and fundamental freedoms. He must be
allowed to practice his profession as a political science teacher. He must be allowed to
contribute his best in the peace negotiations between the National Democratic Front of
the Philippines and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines.

Decision on the petition for proscription against the CPP-NPA as terrorist organizations filed by the DOJ on 21 Feb 2018 with the RTC branch...

The Program of the CPP which is also synonymous with “Plan of Action”, can be construed as the respondent organizations’ “purpose for being,” or the very reasons for its establishment. A perusal of the foregoing Program, consisting of lofty ideals readily shows that the CPP-NPA is organized or exists, not for the purpose engaging in terrorism.
