Wala sa lugar ni kakayahan ng NTF-ELCAC na magsuri ng mga akda. Kung gustong magsulat nila Badoy at Celiz ng literaturang “di subersibo,” magsulat sila. Ngunit malaking insulto sa utak nating mga Pilipino na diktahan ng isang “task force” para sugpuin ang rebolusyonaryong kilusan ang ating sensibilidad, panlasa at kakayahang magproseso ng nababasa at bumuo ng sariling kritika.
The US aggressive military postures toward China entails a maximized implementation of the VFA and EDCA as well as a more extensive presence of US military troops and facilities through US military largesse swapped with local oligarchic fealty to US military and economic interests.
We don’t owe the Joint Hague Declaration solely to FVR. But that he enabled that part of our history, which, to my mind is our march toward just peace, is a legacy that each president of the Philippines after FVR must be measured against.
For the Filipino masses, especially the farmers, Kerima Lorena Tariman is a hero. No amount of terrorist-tagging can erase that.
To a class conscious worker, it is clear that the Philippine Revolution remains unfinished, and is, in fact, raging.
Ang materyalismong istoriko bilang pananaw sa kasaysayan ay binubuo ng masinsing pagsipat sa mga relasyong maka-uri na nagpapagalaw sa umiiral na moda ng produksyon sa isang tiyak na yugto o epoka sa kasaysayan.
This latest terrorist designation on the NDFP is a fascistic act of casting the net so wide in order to tag the armed revolutionary group as a growing network. That it comes with the government’s inability to contain the probable spread of the much feared COVID-19 Delta variant is no longer a shocker.
Garcellano’s “The Philippines As Yugoslavia Revisited” wields academic freedom as a tool to crystallize the best aspects of so-called competing paradigms. But this is less an affirmation of the “marketplace of ideas,” a faux heterodoxy that has no other function but to fragment and marginalize in the name of pluralism than Garcellano’s thoughtful engagement with dialectical thought and totality.
Sa pagsulpot ng mga Community Pantry sa buong kapuluan, nagkaroon ng bagong hugpungan o pagkakatagpo-tagpo. Sa hugpungang ito, matingkad ang diwa ng kolektibismo na may potensyal na makipagtalaban sa gutom, karahasan at pandemya. Litaw rin ang materyal na pag-iral ng use value (laban sa exchange value) upang makamtan ng mamamayan ang kanilang mga pangangailangan.
El Caracazo in 1989 and the current Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela show that resistance to imperialist plunder and mass immiseration and murder of the people through the IMF-WB and the whole neoliberal project is possible and the absolute right and duty of the people.
In the midst of a heightened climate of impunity, this current volume locates the place of the people’s war as a revolutionary process in which alternatives are approached in terms of tactical and strategic objectives. In doing so, resistance is foregrounded as both an actual reality and a goal of people’s war taking place in two different and parallel spheres, namely, organized and legal street protest and the underground revolutionary armed struggle.
