  • REMARKS AT THE LAUNCHING
    OF THE GERMAN EDITION
    OF MAO ZEDONG THOUGHT LIVES


    By Jose Maria Sison
    Founding Chairman, Communist Party of the Philippines
    3 January 1996

    This speech of Prof. Jose Maria Sison ought to have been included in For Democracy and Socialism Against Imperialist Globalization, Volume II of his selected writings from 1991 to 2009. But it was inadvertently not included because it had been obscurely filed.

    Comrades and friends,

    I wish you a happy and successful new year. It is fine that, as we enter the new year, we have the launching of the German edition of Mao Zedong Thought Lives. This is a meaningful occasion to be together as proletarian revolutionaries and as fighters for the socialist cause. Read more

    Lecture at the University of Groningen, 16 May 2013

    By Professor Jose Maria Sison
    Founding Chairman, Communist Party of the Philippines
    Chief Political Consultant, NDFP Negotiating Panel

    Prof. Jose Maria Sison Speaks on People's War and Peace Negotiations Before Students of International Relations at University of Groningen, May 16, 2013

    First of all, I wish to thank the Studentenvereniging voor Internationale Betrekkingen (SIB), or the Dutch United Nations Student Association (DUNSA), for inviting me to lecture on the revolutionary armed struggle being carried out by the New People’s Army (NPA) under the leadership of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP).

    I am honored and privileged to be invited because your association has high prestige and is well known to feature as guest lecturers high officials of the United Nations, the European Union and the Netherlands, including prime ministers, cabinet officials, members of parliaments, senior administrators, high military commanders, outstanding professors and journalists.

    I propose to discuss tonight the character and status of the people’s war in the Philippines, in relation to the social crisis and the policies of the Manila government, also in relation to the long running peace negotiations between the Manila government and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and further in relation to the issue of including the CPP, NPA and the chief political consultant of the NDFP (myself) in the so-called terrorist list of the EU.

    Note: Angeli Bayani plays the female lead role, as Julie de Lima, in “The Guerrilla Is a Poet”–the film about Amado Guerrero (Jose Maria Sison). She stars in the Filipino film “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan”, and in the Singaporean film, “Ilo-ilo”. Both are entries in this year’s Cannes film festival, May 16-26, 2013.

    BAYANI had no time to think about fashion, as she was deep in the forests of Davao, shooting.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    It hit Angeli Bayani that she had nothing to wear for the Cannes fest only after securing a French visa last week.

    “I realized that I had to attend at least five red-carpet events there,” she said. Read more



  • ILPS REITERATES SUPPORT FOR THE SYRIAN PEOPLE,
    CONDEMNS INTERVENTION BY US, NATO, ISRAEL ET AL.


    By Prof. Jose  Maria Sison
    Chairperson, International League of Peoples’ Struggle
    May 12, 2013

    We, the International League of People’s Struggle, reiterate  our support for the Syrian people in upholding national sovereignty and condemn the concerted  military intervention in Syria by the US, NATO, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. These brazenly violate Syrian national  sovereignty and territorial integrity.  Only the people of Syria have the sovereign right to determine what is their government. Read more
