Excerpts from “How will our People’s War Attain a Qualitative Leap?” (tags)
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) has called on us all, to rally around the leadership and exert utmost revolutionary efforts, seizing every moment in our people’s war, to achieve a qualitative development of the revolutionary struggle. This is the call of the hour. At a time when US Imperialism and its European cohorts are facing grave economic and financial crisis, far worse than the Economic Depression of 1930s, our people’s war can seize this opportunity to all-sidedly intensify our struggle and bring the revolution to a new stage of qualitative development.
MAS MASAKIT ANG AMBA KAYSA BIGWAS” Ni NOYNOY AQUINO SA MASANG PILIPINO (tags)
Mukhang mas masakit ang amba ng Rehimeng US-Aquino III kaysa aktwal na hambalos nito sa sambayanan. Hindi pa man nakakabangon ang masa sa mariing parusa ng nakaraang siyam na taon ng rehimeng US-Arroyo, eto na naman ang bagong rehimeng Aquino II na naghahanda ng panibagong atake sa sambayanan. Kitang kita sa pagpili nito ng mga tao sa military na naghahanda ito ng mabagsik at panibagong opensiba laban sa masang Pilipino. Paano ba, ang bagong hirang na hepe ng AFP na si General David na galling sa NOLCOM ay nagbabanta agad na “wawasakin ang NPA sa loob ng tatlong taon.”

On the Coming Benigno S. Aquino III Presidency of the Philippines. Senator Benigno S. Aquino III was proclaimed as the 15th president of the Republic of the Philippines yesterday, June 9, 2010 by the Philippine Congress. There has been a lot of optimism about the assumption to power by Noynoy Aquino. But still dangers looms on the horizon for President Arroyo is still around in Congress. Within the first 100 days, if Noynoy would fail to fulfill any important promise and the crisis in the country would continue to worsen, the broad masses of the Filipino people would hate the Aquino III regime and Noynoy himself for being a traitor and deceiver of the people.

The Queen is Dead? Long Live the King! (tags)
The Filipino people never failed to amaze me. The Filipino has spoken through their hearts. Their emotions showed when they thronged to the polling precints by the thousands. Line-up for hours just to vote and trash the minions of GMA and gave them a resounding defeat. This is the surge of the anti-GMA sentiments that was translated into votes. The tide of the anti-GMA sentiments can be likened in the 1986 boycott called by the opposition the led by Mrs. Aquino after Marcos brazenly stole the 1986 elections.

Patunay lamang na ang labanan ay umiinit na rin kahit na sa internet.
