    ON THE QUESTION OF RESUMING THE FORMAL PEACE TALKS

    Despite Duterte´s scuttlling of the 5th round of formal talks in May 2017, the National Democratic Front of the Phiilippines (NDFP) has encouraged the NDFP Negotiating Panel, its Reciprocal Working Committee on Social and Economic Reforms (RWC-SER) and its Reciprocal Working Group on Political and Constitutional Reforms (RWG-PCR) to continue their drafting work with the assistance of many experts and consultants and on the basis of consultations with various classes, sectors, institutions and mass organizations.

    BRIEF REMARKS AT THE REOPENING OF THE NDFP INFORMATION OFFICE BUILDING

    Duterte’s tirades against Prof. Jose Ma. Sison are a vain attempt to derogate a giant of a revolutionary intellectual and leader. In relentlessly attacking Ka Joma, Duterte is overcompensating for his drug-shrivelled and power-intoxicated brain. He has completely embraced the counterrevolutionary anti-communist US line and abandoned all pretensions for being a Leftist. […]

As the Bamboos Sway

With his recent State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Rodrigo Duterte, while he read most part of his teleprompted speech and veered away from it with his usual ‘F’ loaded tirade, revealed further that he is nothing but a butangero, a bully, bellicose, and buang. […]
