New People’s Army of the Philippines - Taganito
Sine Proletaryo presents “Taganito”, a five-minute video feature of the successful punitive action carried out by the New People’s Army under the Pulang Diwata Command (Northeast Mindanao Regional Operation Command) against three of the largest and most destructive mining companies in Surigao del Norte in October 3, 2011. The action was widely applauded by the Filipino poeple and recently commended by the Communist Party of the Philippines on its 44th anniversary.
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today denounced the docking of theUSS Bremerton (USS-698) at Subic Bay as an affront against Philippine sovereignty and raised concerns on the risk of a nuclear accident with the increasingly frequent dockings of US nuclear-powered and -capable warships in Subic and other parts of the Philippines.
The CPP cited a secret memorandum issued by the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in March 2011 which pointed out that nuclear-powered submarines are highly vulnerable to a core-meltdown similar to the Fukushima meltdown.
The CPP said not a few US naval warships and submarines have met with accidents while on port, including the recent fire of a US nuclear-powered naval ship in Japan.
The CPP pointed out that there have been at least 80 dockings over the past year before the scheduled docking of the USSBremerton today. Virtually everyday there are American ships either docked in Philippine ports or patrolling Philippine seas.
