April 22, 2014

The International League of Peoples’ Struggle views the upcoming visits of United States President Barack Obama to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines from April 23 to 29 as part of the US imperialist objective of further entrenching its hegemony and imposing its neo-liberal agenda while undermining the sovereignty and coveting the patrimony of countries in the region, in line with its avowed “strategic pivot” to Asia.

OPAPP Secretary Teresita Q.

ILPS EXPOSES AND CONDEMNS NATURE AND PURPOSES
OF NUCLEAR SECURITY SUMMITS INITIATED BY THE US


By Prof. Jose Maria Sison

Chairperson, International League of Peoples’ Struggle
March 4, 2014

We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, expose and condemn the Nuclear Security Summits as a hypocritical and malicious propaganda platform initiated by US imperialism. This kind of summit pretends to prevent nuclear terrorism but in fact aims to promote and strengthen the oligopoly of nuclear weapons by the imperialist powers headed by the US. These are the real megaterrorists who deceptively accuse of nuclear terrorism those states and other entities outside of their orbit.

ILPS ANALYZES SITUATION IN UKRAINE,
CONDEMNS TROUBLE-MAKING BY US AND EU


By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chairperson

February 22, 2014

Since the horrendous attack of Nazi Germany, the great anti-fascist victory of the Soviet Union and the socialist reconstruction after World War II, Ukraine has suffered a series of catastrophes in so many decades: the rise of modern revisionism and gradual restoration of capitalism from the late 1950s onwards leading to the rapid full-scale restoration of capitalism and collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and the social and economic devastation of the Ukraine as the Mafia-type bourgeoisie fully privatized the economy, exploited the people with impunity and carried out the neoliberal economic policy of boundless greed.

DEMANDS RESPECT FOR SOVEREIGNTY OF VENEZUELA

February 19, 2014

The International League of  Peoples’ Struggle condemns the US and its puppets in Venezuela for causing artificial  shortages of certain basic goods and inflation and inciting  crimes and sham protests aimed at destabilizing  the Bolivarian government of President Nicolas Maduro.

The malicious scheme of the US and its puppets headed by Leopoldo Lopez is to  fabricate conditions for a military coup against the government which was duly-elected last April.  President Maduro is justified in taking the necessary steps against the US and local malefactors in the coup scheme.

SUPER TYPHOON HAIYAN (YOLANDA): THE POLITICAL CONTEXT
OF A NATURAL DISASTER IN THE PHILIPPINES


Lecture at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences,
Groningen, 16 December 2013
By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chairperson
International League of Peoples’ Struggle

Good afternoon, friends. Thank you Jake for your kind introduction.

My task today is to talk about the political context of the corruption and criminal negligence of the Aquino regime in relation to the super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda).

The Scope of Devastation, Corruption and Criminal Negligence

Let me start by pointing immediately to the lack of preparedness of the Aquino regime before the super typhoon struck and the delayed and inadequate response of the regime to the great and urgent need for rescue and relief operations. The disaster made by the regime compounded the natural disaster, aggravating and worsening the intolerable suffering of the 16 million people in provinces of the Visayas and adjoining provinces of Bicol, Mindoro and Palawan.
