José María Sison werd in 1968 de eerste voorzitter van de communistische partij (CPP) in de Filippijnen en richtte een jaar later met andere communisten de New People’s Army (NPA) op. Deze guerrillabeweging probeert tot op de dag van vandaag door middel van gewapende aanvallen een arbeidersrevolutie tot stand te brengen. Om dit voor elkaar te krijgen strijden ze vooral tegen de regering, grootgrondbezitters en de aanwezigheid van buitenlandse bedrijven in de Filippijnen.Read more

Who is Joma Sison?
(This essay was written after watching the film ‘The Guerrilla is a Poet’. I wrote this, supposedly, as an outline for a friend I brought with me to see the film.)
To date there is indeed a very influential political analyst that defines the prevailing political issues in the Philippines (and even the whole world) in a very radical way, but is still very relevant and in a way gives an alternative solution that makes a lot of sense in terms of practicality for the benefit of the vast masses.
Prof. Jose Ma. Sison indeed gave the youth of his generation and even the activists of today a lasting influence in criticizing and analyzing the political phenomenon in Philippine society. His brand of politics is different from the traditional ones, for he agitates with the revolutionary lines that are based from Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong Thought and translates it to fit the particular situation of the Philippines.Read more

5 Books of Selected Writings

from 1968 to 1990
The Philippines has reached its own version of an impasse. On one side are the Filipino people demanding for the abolition of pork barrel and discretionary funds, including that of President Aquino’s, and on the other side is the Aquino administration, which has been adamantly defending the pork barrel fund under different names whether PDAF or the DAP and has been stubbornly refusing to give up President Aquino’s own pork barrel funds. How will the impasse end?
By D.L. Mondelo
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The network of corruption exposed by the pork barrel scam has gone wider and wider. What was supposedly a case of fund misuse, corruption and political patronage involving Janet Lim-Napoles and government officials and legislators during the previous administration of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has now been exposed as having continued under the current Aquino administration, which won under the campaign banner of “change” and its self-professed “daang matuwid” governance of anti-corruption and moral ascendancy. After the Aquino administration was forced to admit the existence of its own pork barrel creation the Disbursement Acceleration Program, which involved the president’s allies, the Filipino people, who were already calling for the abolition of the pork barrel fund under the Priority Development Assistance Fund or PDAF, became more incensed.Read more
