    Sonny Mallari: Kaugnay sa mga pinakahuling pahayag ni Alex Padilla sa Rappler, talaga bang nagwakas na ang usapang pangkapayapaan? Pakikomentaryuhan ang kanyang mga pahayag.

    JMS: Si Alex Padilla ang nagsabing patay na ang usapang pangkapayapaan. Maaaring totoo ito, laluna sa panahon ng rehimeng Aquino, na nag-iilusyon na kaya nitong durugin ang rebolusyonaryong kilusan sa pamamagitan ng Oplan Bayanihan na dinisenyo ng US. Subalit naniniwala akong na patuloy na lalakas ang panawagan ng mga tagapagtaguyod ng kapayapaan para sa pistoks dahil sa lumalalang krisis sa ekonomya at lipunan, ng paglakas ng rebolusyonaryong kilusan at ng pag-igting ng gera sibil.

    ON PEACE NEGOTIATIONS IN RAPPLER

    Sonny Mallari: In view of the recent statements of Alex Padilla in Rappler, are the peace talks already dead? Please comment on his statements.

    JMS: It is Alex Padilla who says that the peace talks are dead. This may be true, especially during the Aquino regime, which has the illusion that it can destroy the revolutionary movement with the US-designed Oplan Bayanihan. But I believe that peace advocates will increasingly call for peace negotiations because of the worsening economic and social crisis, the growing strength of the revolutionary movement and the intensification of the civil war.

  • THIRD WORLD PROJECT, OR HOW POCO FAILED


    By Charlie Samuya Veric

    In a novel combining fiction, biography, and memoir, John Edgar Wideman begins with a letter to Frantz Fanon.1 Holding a glass of red wine, the narrator sits in the garden of a small house in Brittany, addressing Fanon, who has been dead for almost half a century. The narrator calls it the Fanon project, a task that has been on his mind since he first read The Wretched of the Earth. Fanon, the narrator says, holds a powerful lesson as a witness of history. “Your witness,” the narrator says of the long-dead figure, “of the separate domains of settler and native, black and white, your understanding of how the separation exploits the native, appropriates the native’s land, and stultifies the being of both settler and native, taught me how divided from myself and others I’ve become.”2 Why, the reader might ask, is Wideman’s narrator still using the seemingly quaint language of decolonization in the age of globalization? To such a question the narrator responds: I want to be free. If the narrator is correct, Fanon represents the possibility of radical freedom today. That is to say, the persistence of the Third World ideal in the age of globalization can be understood as the result of persistent unfreedom. Under siege in Fanon’s time and deemed to be so today, freedom, the narrator says, can only be secured “in the institutions of society, in the consciousness of individuals, and the spirit of culture.”3 Read more

    LUCENA CITY, Quezon – Sobriety and the willingness to talk could break the deadlock in the peace negotiations between the Aquino administration and communist insurgents, exiled Communist Party of the Philippines founder Jose Maria Sison said Wednesday.

    “If the GPH (Government of the Philippines) somehow shows sobriety and willingness to talk, the NDFP (National Democratic Front of the Philippines) will not hesitate to open wide the door for peace negotiations between the duly authorized panels,” Sison, NDFP chief political consultant, said in reply to an e-mail sent by the Inquirer on Wednesday asking him if the communist panel planned to invite government representatives to an informal meeting to settle the kinks that hinder the resumption of the peace negotiation.
