We are celebrating Ka Joma’s 55 years of service to the Filipino people together with his 75th birthday. He studied the revolutionary experience of the Filipino people against colonialism and imperialism and understood the revolutionary ideas of the working class as the guide to continuing and accomplishing the Philippine revolution. He became active in the people’s movement for national liberation and democracy in the late 1950s.

Dear comrades, friends and compatriot,
First of all, I thank the organizers and all of you for coming. I am overwhelmed and humbled by this celebration. I came to this event, thinking that I would sit back and enjoy myself most of the time. But Julie has made a proposal to further activate me in connection with the revitalization and expansion of the work of the Center for Social Studies. I am thus reminded that there is no sitting back and no retirement for revolutionaries.
Prof. Jose Maria Sison joins one billion women and men rising to end violence against women and girls, to demand justice for them, encourage the survivors to break the silence and release the stories of both pain and hope in various art forms.

Sine Proletaryo presents “JOMA: 55/75″, a 21-minute video which provides a broad overview of the 55 years of revolutionary service of Jose Ma. Sison, founding chair of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), on the occasion of his 75th birthday on February 8, 2014. The video features underground youth and workers activists, NPA Red fighters, leaders of the CPP and NDF, NDF peace consultants and advocates of anti-imperialism whose insights provide a glimpse of the profound significance of Ka Joma’s life of service to the Filipino proletariat and international communist movement.
The video features the song “Malipayong Adlaw”, a song by Agaw Armas, a revolutionary cultural group from the Southern Mindanao Region, typically sang by Red fighters to greet the morning of a comrade’s birthday to further boost their revolutionary spirit.
