press statements


I am quite different from Duterte who violates the JASIG and boasts of his brutal and bloodthirsty character by threatening to kill 5 NPA suspects (male or female) for every AFP soldier killed in battle.

The Duterte regime has plenty of money from increased taxation and foreign loans

The Duterte regime has plenty of money from increased taxation and foreign loans for buying military equipment and raising the salaries of military and police but little or no money for expanding essential social services and carrying out national industrialization and genuine land reform to effect economic development, address the roots of the armed conflict and lay the basis for a just and lasting peace. Duterte is unwittingly generating the conditions for the advance of the people´s democratic revolution through accelerated people´s war. […]

Over the past 50 years, Burma’s military rulers have enabled state and large corporations to take over land and water supplies in what used to territory of the ancient Kingdom of Arakan before it was incorporated into Burma under British colonial rule.

COMMENT OF PROF. JOSE MARIA SISON; ¨Ramos should strongly admonish Duterte

Duterte boasts of himself as a strong man, intimidating the Filipino people with brute force and with the most abusive language and is actually establishing a fascist dictatorship through Con-Ass and Cha-Cha. But he is a complete coward and puppet vis a vis China by selling out cheap the sovereign rights of the Philippines and the Filipino people over the rich mineral and marine resources of the West Philippine Sea, Panatag Shoal and Benham Rise.
