Ang Bayan / Communist Party of the Philippines:
The Filipino people eagerly await the 43rd anniversary of the New People’s Army (NPA) on March 29. Amid the darkness of widespread hunger and poverty, exploitation and oppression, the NPA and the armed revolution are beacons of hope leading to a future where freedom, progress and justice abide.
The US-Aquino regime’s much-vaunted “road of righteousness” is nothing but an empty slogan leading to an ever wider chasm between the ruling classes and the oppressed, to intensified exploitation and more intense suffering and poverty for the people.
The US-Aquino regime turns a blind eye to the abject conditions of the Filipino people. On the other hand, it is completely subservient to US imperialism and is beside itself advancing the interests of big foreign companies. It gives oil giants free rein to raise prices, and big mining companies and plantations the libertyto seize land and plunder the country’s resources.
