The Filipino people and their revolutionary forces aspire for a just and lasting peace that is based on national sovereignty, democracy and social justice. The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) assert that a just and lasting peace cannot be achieved under a system that caters to foreign big corporations and their local big comprador, landlord and bureaucrat capitalist collaborators. Their political, military and economic power is built on a system of oppression and exploitation that consigns the Filipino people to backwardness, poverty, slavery and misery.

The people's democratic government prohibits the operations of all enterprises that are plunderous and destructive to the environment and contrary to the interests of the people and their revolutionary movement. The most striking of these are the big mining firms, almost all of which are 100% owned by foreign imperialist companies.

Almost all of these enterprises also operate in areas covered by bases of the armed revolutionary movement. The revolutionary movement has a clear policy regarding these baneful enterprises. They must be stopped and held accountable for the destruction they have wrought and they must be expelled from guerrilla fronts, zones and bases and the entire country.

The Philippine Daily Inquirer

After reading the Editorial of your Philippine Daily Inquirer issue dated Jan. 9, 2011, I took pain in writing to answer the points raised in your Editorial.

Your editorial accused the NPA of running “around agreements that call for peace” and “treachery” for staging an ambush against an army unit that was conducting offensive military operation against the NPA in Samar two days before our self-declared ceasefire took effect. The NPA in Mindanao was also put in bad light for its ambush against a team of the 3rd Special Forces that conducts military operations in the guise of community organizing for peace and development on 6 Jan. 2011, two days after the expiration of our self-declared ceasefire.
