At least 90 per cent of Filipino children suffer gross human rights violations under the semicolonial and semifeudal ruling system of the comprador big bourgeoisie and landlord class.

A contribution by Mario Santos

Secretariat
Published in the Socialism & Liberation Magazine
August 2005
In April 2005, the European Court denied Professor Jose Maria Sison’s request to examine files with information on the European Union’s decision to include him on its list of “terrorists.”
Sison is currently the chief political consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). Before Europe labeled him a “terrorist,” the United States put him on its foreign terrorist list. Dubbing Professor Sison a “terrorist” is part of the US government’s ongoing campaign against revolutionaries all over the world. more…

At the same time, we wish to cite the proposals of the NDFP to resolve said prejudicial questions.

Ideology and Religion in the Philippines
By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chairman, International Network for Philippine Studies
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
7 May 2005
(Lecture to Filipino Catholic priests in The Netherlands, Belgium and Austria)
The subject given to me for discussion today is quite general and large. We need to reduce the scope to something more manageable. I propose that we take up the three ideologies that are historically most influential in the Philippines or have demonstrably most affected the Filipino people. These are Christianity, bourgeois liberalism and Marxism. more…

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.
