Unite with the Broad Masses: Resist Tyranny and State Terrorism

in Statements

Katipunan ng Gurong Makabayan (KAGUMA)

The Katipunan ng Gurong Makabayan (KAGUMA) extends warmest comradely and revolutionary greetings to the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) on the occasion of its 49th anniversary. We join the Filipino people in celebrating the momentous achievements of the NDFP in uniting the broad masses around anti-imperialist, anti-feudal, and anti-fascist struggles to forward the national democratic revolution with a socialist perspective.

Established in 1973 as a revolutionary alliance of underground mass organizations, the NDFP was at the heart of the Filipino people’s heroic struggle against the tyrannical and fascistic US-Marcos dictatorship. Since its founding, the NDFP has served as an invaluable wellspring of revolutionary activists, cadre, and red fighters and provided much-needed moral and material support for the armed struggle being waged in the countryside.

We will always remember all the martyrs and heroes of the revolution who dedicated their lives to forward the people’s democratic revolution. We pay special homage to Ka Fidel Agcaoili, Chairperson of the NDFP Negotiating Panel, and to NDFP peace consultant Ka Julius Giron, who were instrumental in building the revolutionary united front and advancing the work of the NDFP.

KAGUMA was founded in 1971 in the midst of the upsurge of mass struggles joined by tens of thousands of youth and workers against the looming imposition by Ferdinand Marcos Sr. of dictatorial rule. Like other allied organizations under the NDFP born in this period, KAGUMA was underground by the 1972 declaration of martial law as it sought in the face of repression to persist in its revolutionary vision and mission.

KAGUMA in the past five decades continued arousing, organizing, and mobilizing teachers and education workers for their sectoral interests and linking them to the overall revolutionary struggle of the Filipino people, steeling the organization in the struggle against tyranny and state terrorism.

Today, the US-Duterte regime embodies the epitome of the vilest features of corrupt, mendicant, incompetent, and fascist rule that persisted beyond the overthrow of the dictator in 1986. We face the grave threat of the unwanted return of the Marcoses to the Presidential Palace and the extension of Duterte rule on the back of a dastardly campaign of disinformation, red-tagging, fascist intimidation, and massive electoral manipulation.

Yet amid great hardships and repression, a mass movement against the Marcos-Duterte clique has arisen and united with the electoral campaign of the leading opposition candidate. A growing array of political forces now unified in a platform against tyranny is gaining ground and momentum as hundreds of thousands flock to massive campaign rallies and house to house sorties in various parts of the country.

In desperation, the Marcos-Duterte clique has made full use of the state’s repressive machinery to red-tag and intensify fascist attacks not only against progressive parties, organizations, and individuals but even members of the traditional political opposition. They are setting the stage for rigging the election results on a grand scale and conditioning the mind of the public of the inevitability of a Marcos-Duterte win through their fake news mill propagated via the mass media, social media, and commissioned surveys.

But these brazen machinations to perpetuate themselves in power has only sparked the ire of the majority of Filipinos who have pinned their hopes on the electoral exercise as an opportunity to end Duterte’s tyrannical rule and block the full-blown restoration of the Marcoses. The volatile mix of greater repression and the growing political awakening of the broad masses is a fertile ground for drawing more and more people to the fold of the new democratic revolution.

In the face of the worsening crisis of international imperialism and the domestic semi-colonial and semi-feudal system, the big comprador-landlord ruling classes have increasingly resorted to state terrorism to railroad anti-people policies and programs that exploit and oppress the majority of the populace. The steady slide towards fascism will only hasten the realization of the Filipino people of the necessity of carrying forward the national democratic revolution to victory.

We will not be cowed by the increasing tyranny and repression. The broad teachers’ mass movement, with KAGUMA at the forefront, will continue the work of strengthening the revolutionary united front and providing crucial support for the armed revolution. In this critical moment, we call for the building of the widest and firmest unity with the broad masses to resist tyranny and state terrorism.

Long live the National Democratic Front of the Philippines!

Long live the people!

Carry forward the people’s democratic revolution towards complete victory!

Renmin Malaya, Spokesperon, Christians for National Liberation

The Christians for National Liberation (CNL) joins the National Democratic Revolution of the Philippines and the 15 member organizations in the celebration of its 49- year anniversary. Surely, this is a momentous occasion to once again celebrate the past, present and near future victories of the National Democratic Revolution with a Socialist Perspective. It continues to bravely face the test of perseverance and steadfastness to the revolutionary struggle while uniting and expanding the revolutionary struggle then and now, It remains vigorous and ever “faithful” to the cause of the struggling poor; even as it faces with renewed vigor and commitment the tyrannical, fool and puppet Duterte regime.

Our revolutionary fervor hails the NDFP for its keenness against the moves of the Philippine government to discredit and malign the democratic front accused of being a terrorist movement cuddling allied “terrorist organizations.” We cannot be silent on this manipulation and devilish tactics by emphasizing that the real terrorist is the US- Duterte government who does all its best to dupe the people to believing that his government is leaving legacies of change and development. But social realities say otherwise. Instead, this government this government is leaving legacies of tyranny, corruption, misgovernance, crimes against humanity, and many more evil deeds.

The CNL pictures the lonely fading of Duterte and his minions barely two months from now. Besieged people’s claim for authentic revolutionary transformation is remarkable even as they involve in the politics of change while aware always of the fact that such a change isn’t the real answer to the crises of imperialism, bureaucratic capitalism and feudalism. These social ills the son of deposed dictator and another pool Marcos son wants to preserve as the latter does all his best as well in alliance with tyrannical family of Arroyo, and of course the Dutertes to be back in power through national election. Nevertheless, we believe the vigilant and consolidated masses won’t allow such to prosper. Thus united front works are underway to bring the Church closer to the people’s struggle and isolate those against genuine transformation.

We pay highest tribute as well to the revolutionary Christian martyrs and all the revolutionary forces for offering their whole lives to the point of suffering and death to share with the cause of the national democratic revolution. Theirs is a heritage of sublime prowess and moving devotion for life’s meaning and fullness; the way Jesus of Nazareth lived in his lifetime. CNL history tells of Christian people, clergy, nuns and lay, who cuddled the highest form of struggle and joined the armed struggle with the New People’s Army. Those who chose the “white areas” were resolute in supporting the mass movements and championing and expanding the works of arousing, organizing and mobilizing of the basic sectors. The same ardor stands today amongst these Christian people who clearly understand and live out God’s greatest commandment “to love God and neighbor” translated even passionately in serving the people.

Today, the CNL consistently adheres to the NDFP Program in making flesh and blood “national liberation and democracy that seeks to provide a broad basis of unity for all social classes, sectors, groups and individual Filipinos here and abroad desirous of genuine national freedom and democracy, lasting peace and a progressive Philippines.” This and the rest of the programs it embraces.  CNL conforms also  to the authenticity of the armed revolution to topple down the semi-colonial and semi-feudal system depriving the Filipino people of their God-given rights to live as humans of sacred and highest worth.

Long live the National Democratic Revolution!

Long live the National Democratic Front of the Philippines!

Long live the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army!

Support the People’s War! Join the New People’s Army!

Defeat imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism!

Long live proletarian internationalism!
