Tagging the revolutionaries and progressives as terrorists is a ploy to widen the road for imperialist aggression, repression and exploitation and create conditions for the nationwide imposition of martial law

After pronouncing the CPP-NPA-NDFP as terrorist organizations, GRP president Rodrigo Duterte subsequently fulfils the US imperialist’s objective to ruin the GPH-NDFP peace negotiations. In doing so, Duterte guarantees the escalation of US military intervention and stiffening of the US extensive domination over the Philippines.

Duterte obstinately detest the revolutionary struggle that he accuses as an act of terrorism. But he is imprudent and quiet on the transgressions of his US imperialist masters who are the real and most powerful terrorist. The US incessantly carries out wars of aggression and exploits billions of people of the third world and other parts of the globe.

Incriminating the democratic mass movement, militant organizations, and social activists to terrorism is a key policy of the US war on terror and anti-terrorists laws that Duterte has to abide. Demonizing and attacking the revolutionary and progressive organizations and individuals is a ploy to widen the road for imperialist aggression, repression and exploitation. Besides, Duterte’s tactical objective in making this is to create a systematic condition for the nationwide imposition of martial law.

With martial law, the reactionary ruling class will be more flagrant in employing the military and police forces to suppress the struggles of the Filipino people for land, fair wages and better living conditions.

Since the declaration of martial law in Mindanao, the AFP and PNP has launched vicious all-out attacks against the people and their revolutionary forces.

In Far South Mindanao, huge multinationals Dole and Sumifru employ the AFP and PNP to ensure their unrelenting land grab. Military operations are also intensified in Lumad and peasant communities opposing large-scale mining. The bourgeois comprador−landlords such as Consunji, Cojuangco-Ang, Tan and Alcantara-Dominguez also employ military and paramilitary forces to secure their properties and big businesses. Particularly in Sultan Kudarat, Consunji hires the Marine, Army and CAA forces to execute activists and residents who are against his environment destructive businesses and land monopoly.

Victims of extrajudicial killings perpetrated by state agents continue to increase in number. More and more civilian masses experience grave threat, and thousands of individuals were displaced by AFP bombardments in Sultan Kudarat and other parts of the region.

Imposing martial law would further isolate the Duterte regime from the people that would eventually lead to its downfall. History has proven that in the face of Marcos’s martial law, the necessity of waging revolutionary armed struggle becomes stronger because it is the most effective way of resisting the fascist military rule and in defending the people’s democratic rights. The victories of the revolutionary armed struggle will inspire the people to wage greater struggles.

The Filipino people will hold the US-Duterte regime directly responsible for all the abuses perpetrated by the military and police under his militarist rule. They will carry out intensified protests and mass actions across the country to overthrow this rotten fascist regime.
