Jose Maria Sison’s new book, Crisis Generates Resistance, will be launched in Manila on Bonifacio Day, November 30, 2015. This is the first volume of a new series of books published by the International Network for Philippine Studies (INPS) under the general title, Peoples’ Struggles against Oppression and Exploitation, which covers the period from 2009 to 2015.
The new volume covers in particular the period from January 2009 to June 2010, when the Arroyo regime was coming to an end and the Aquino regime was inaugurated. It reflects the Filipino people’s resistance to the Arroyo regime and the semicolonial and semifeudal ruling system, whose rottenness is well manifested by naked puppetry, ruthless plunder, impoverishment of the people and atrocities under Oplan Bantay Laya within the framework of the US global war of terror.
The books in the entire series bring together the most significant articles, statements, messages and interviews that Jose Maria Sison has done from year to year in various capacities, such as Chairperson of the International League for Peoples´ Struggle (ILPS), Founding Chairman of of the Communist Party of the Philippines, Chief Political Consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines in peace negotiations with the Manila government and Founding Chairman of Kabataang Makabayan.
