On the failure to destroy the revolutionary movement and the possible ouster of Duterte

In the last quarter of 2017, Duterte’s highest military subordinates were claiming to be able to destroy the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New People’s Army (NPA) before the end of 2018. They have utterly failed.

They have moved their goal further to the middle of 2019. They will certainly fail again. It is pure hallucination for them to imagine that they can easily destroy an armed revolutionary movement that has grown in strength by fighting a 14-year fascist dictatorship and the strategic plans of military suppression by a series of pseudo-democratic regimes.

The reactionary military and police are in a more difficult situation than ever before. Their strength is actually limited and insufficient to destroy the revolutionary movement. The reactionary government is bankrupt and is offending the people for raising taxes that are wasted on military expenditures, bureaucratic corruption, overpriced infrastructure projects and foreign debt service.

Worst of all, the military and police are ineffective against the revolutionary movement because they serve the narrow interests of a tyrannical regime and the exploiting classes of big compradors, landlords and bureaucrat capitalists. Heaviest burden of the military and police is a president who publicly admits being a murderer, rapist, plunderer and who incites them to commit mass murder and human rights violations.

A broad united front of patriotic and democratic forces is becoming stronger and is gaining support from military and police officers who are critical of the treasonous, tyrannical, brutal and corrupt character of the Duterte regime and Duterte himself and who are now readying their withdrawal of support from this regime in conjunction with the legal mass protest actions.

The NDFP encourages and supports the broad united front and mass movement to oust Duterte from power. Definitely, it appreciates highly the expected intensification of NPA tactical offensives as contributory to the weakening, isolation and overthrow of the Duterte regime.###

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.
