By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chief Political Consultant
National Democratic Front of the Philippines

The entire Filipino people must condemn all pronouncements and actions of the US government and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) to justify and push the entry of US combat troops in the Philippines under such pretexts as joint military exercises, training, civic action, and relief operations.

National Democratic Front of the Philippines
11 August 2004

The Bush regime is sabotaging the peace negotiations between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) by having the US State Department and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury Department renew the listing of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), the New People’s Army (NPA) and the NDFP chief political consultant as “terrorists”.  more…

The US Cannot Extricate Itself from Iraqi Quagmire by Setting Up the Puppet Iraqi Interim Government

By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
General Consultant
International League of Peoples’ Struggle
28 June 2004

The US is so flagrantly hell-bent on holding on to the fruits of its criminal war of aggression against the people of Iraq. It wants to control and own the oil resources of Iraq in order to tighten its grip on the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. It wants to keep 14 US military bases and more than 135,000 US troops in Iraq in order to control the entire Middle East, allow Israel to slaughter the Palestinian people and humiliate all the Arab people. It is monopolizing all kinds of business priivileges and contracts, especially reconstruction contracts and military sales, in order to appropriate the oil resources and income of Iraq.more…

Massive cheating can ignite protest movement to topple the regime

By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
NDFP Chief Political Consultant
15 May 2004

As chief political consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, I am critical of the May 10, 2004 elections of the reactionary government in a fundamental way. These elections are mainly and essentially a contest for power among competing political factions and agents of the pro-imperialist exploiting classes of big compradors and landlords. These elections are not really democratic exercises. They are meant to exclude the genuine representatives of the toiling masses and other exploited people. more…

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.
