Prof. Elmer Ordoñez: Undoubtedly, Jose Maria Sison’s Struggle for National Democracy (1967), a collection of speeches / lectures (including one delivered at the Philippine Military Academy) and Philippine Society and Revolution, 1970, had made him, according to Teodoro Agoncillo, one of the three most influential revolutionary leaders, after Andres Bonifacio and Crisanto Evangelista.
The Philippine PEN will have “The Writer as Public Intellectual” as the theme for its conference in December this year.
A definition of terms is expected at the gathering of writers who come from various disciplines or backgrounds. PEN was founded in the ‘20s by literary people like poets, essayists, and novelists. The acronym stands for these three genres they represented but there were also playwrights so PEN membership is not that limited. For one, the essay form is an open field and journalists, academics, editors and others have become members. Evidence of publication is routinely asked from prospective members.

La Carta de la Liga Internacional de la Lucha de los Pueblos (ILPS) y cada declaracion general emitida por la Asamblea Internacional de la ILPS definen la lucha democratica y anti-imperialista de la ILPS y ponen enfasis en el objetivo de la liberacion nacional y social de los pueblos. La ILPS se rige por los terminos generales y busca un terreno comun para crear el mas amplio frente unido internacional de todas las fuerzas democraticas y antiimperialistas. Pero el objetivo final es el cambio del sistema, reemplazando el capitalismo con el socialismo.
