Mahal na mga guro, estudyante at kaibigan
Malugod akong nagpapasalamat sa inyong pagdalo, sa UP Cineastes’ Studio sa pagdadala ng lahat ng pelikula ng CineFilipino at sa STAND UP bilang punong abala sa pagpapalabas ng The Guerrilla Is a Poet dito sa UP Film Center.
Umaaasa akong magugustuhan ninyo ang nilalaman at ang masining na paggawa ng pelikula. Nakatuon ang nilalaman sa buhay ko noong mga taon mula 1968 hanggang 1977, mula sa pagpupundar ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas hanggang ako ay mahuli, mapadebate kay Marcos at matortyur. Ipinakikita ang paglakas ng kilusang rebolusyonaryo hanggang ngayon. Patunay na mahusay ang pagkakagawa ng pelikula ang mga gawad na tinanggap at mga papuri mula sa mga manunulat sa masmidya.
This book is titled after the world-renowned poem of Jose Maria Sison, “The Guerrilla Is Like a Poet,” which celebrates with natural imagery and in a lyrical way the Filipino people’s revolutionary struggle for national liberation and democracy against foreign and feudal oppression and exploitation. The book contains poems from Sison’s Prison and Beyond, which won the Southeast Asia WRITE Award, as well as new poems that further develop the theme of struggle for national and social liberation as well as exile. It also carries articles of creative writers on the significance and relevance of his poetry. Sison is a Filipino revolutionary with extensive guerrilla experience and has been a recognized poet since his student days at the University of the Philippines. The publication of this book has been sparked by the effort of the Academy for Cultural Activism of the New World Summit to present the people’s culture in the national democratic struggle in the Philippines.

Fellow artists and Friends,
Good afternoon! Thank you Maria Hlavajova of the Basis voor Actuele Kunst for the warm welcome and Jonas Staal of the New World Academy for the introduction to the program.
My task today is to talk about the national democratic struggle and the people’s trial of US imperialism and its puppets in the Philippines. This is in connection with the title of this session, Towards a People’s Culture, which centers on the critical role of arts and artists in the struggle for national liberation and democracy in the Philippines. I am pleased that Luis Jalandoni of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines will focus on the conflict between cultural imperialism and people’s culture.

We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, appeal to all our global region committees, national chapters, member-organizations, our friends and all the people of the world to carry out a campaign of raising resources and delivering them to the millions of people afflicted by super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) in 35 provinces in the central part of the Philippines.

Julie and I express our most heartfelt condolences to the beloved family of Fr. Jose P. Dizon over his passing away. Like all his comrades, we are deeply saddened and can find comfort only by reminding ourselves of his devoted and fruitful service to the poor and exploited working people.
An Irish priest friend of ours (the late Jack Hynes), who was close to Bishop Perez within the Church-Labor Center, briefed us in 1976 about Fr. Joe D as a trusted assistant of the bishop, a staunch opponent of the Marcos fascist dictatorship and a supporter of the workers, particularly in the La Tondeña strike. Then, he introduced us to him and put us in his care. We were in transit from one place to another.

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.
