ONCE MORE ON THE BURIAL OF MARCOS

1. According to former President Ramos, the Marcos family was allowed to bring back the remains of Ferdinand Marcos to the Philippines on the condition that these were buried in Ilocos Norte.

2. Incoming President Duterte has announced on his authority as president of the reactionary government that he will allow the burial of Marcos’ remains at the so-called Libingan ng mga Bayani, which I consider a burial ground for many traitors and enemies of the Filipino people, including Filipino mercenaries of the US in the USAFFE, soldiers of the reactionary government, Carlos P. Romulo (longtime pro-US Filipino diplomat) and about three puppet and corrupt former presidents.

3. I have been asked by the journalists whether the decision of President Duterte to allow the burial of Marcos’ remains at the so-called Libingan ng mga Bayani would upset the peace negotiations in view of widespread protest and resistance on the premise that Marcos would be honored as hero by being buried in what I consider a cemetery of many traitors. I said no and I pointed out that President Duterte himself had clarified that Marcos was being buried at the Libingan not as a hero but as a soldier.

4. I continue to support and sympathize with all the people who do not wish to honor Marcos as a hero in any way. He was conclusively defined as a traitor by his fascist dictatorship and by his monstrous human rights violations and corruption.

5. The Marcos family should keep the remains of Marcos in Ilocos Norte where these are better guarded by his followers than at the Libingan. They should remember that the big bust of Marcos along the Kennon Road was successfully blown up by his so many victims.

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.
