SM: Wala na bang pagasa ang resumption ng peace nego under Noynoy administration?
JMS: The NDFP policy is to negotiate with the GPH in accordance with The Hague Joint Dexcalaration, Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees, the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law and other agreements. The Aquino regime is responsible for paralyzing the peace negotiations by refusing to comply with these agreements.
THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE PHILIPPINES ON MAOISM,
NEW DEMOCRATIC REVOLUTION, CHINA & THE CURRENT WORLD
Interview with Prof. Jose Maria Sison, Founding Chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines
By New Culture Magazine
of the Communist Reconstruction Union of Brazil.
1 – What is your position towards Mao Zedong Thought or Maoism? Are there big differences between treating the theoretical contributions of Mao Zedong to scientific socialism as “Mao Zedong Thought” or “Maoism”? What would consist in taking Maoism as the third stage in the development of the theory of the practice of the proletariat? Would Maoism get in contradiction with the contributions given by other theoreticals of scientific socialism, like President Kim Il Sung with its Juche Idea?

Ka Joma touched on the history of the revolutionary movement in the Philippines, and especially the period that is covered by the two books that are being launched today and that also covers some of his own important contributions to the struggle. Moreover, he makes the bridge to the current crisis of global capitalism and contemporary local political, economic and social conditions in the Philippines. As he is already covering 45 years and spanning the whole globe, what can I add?

This is the second time I have had the honor to respond to the publication “Foundation for Resuming the Philippine Revolution,” the last time being in Manila last summer during the “Human rights and Peace in the Philippines” conference.
In the spirit of internationalism, there is no paradox in discussing the importance of social, economic and political revolution in the Netherlands, a country whose wealth and privilege is defined by a long standing colonial history; the consequence being that the majority of this country have obtained the status of middle class, deeply complicit with a political and economic system that exists by grace of systemic exploitation and oppression.
