Response to Jose Ma. Sison’s Call for Dialogue

16 June 2016

Revolutionary Greetings!

Our struggle for Socialism is always geared towards the victory of the masses and the working class. It is always anchored on the elimination of oppression and real empowerment of the people especially the working class. We owe this revolutionary struggle to the sufferings of the peoples and communities under the oppressive social, political and economic system and so they must be the reason of our persistence.

We have had antagonistic relationship (sacrificing lives on both sides) with you and the New Peoples’ Army (NPA) since you considered the Rebolusyonaryong Partido ng Manggagawa-Mindanao (Revolutionary Workers Party – Mindanao/RPM-M) and the Revolutionary Peoples’ Army (RPA) as counterrevolutionary, pseudo-progressive and traitor to the masses.

We have never let down our guards, we are always in an active defense both against the state and the New Peoples’ Army. Recent reports reached us that operatives of the NPA are looking for latest picture of RPM-M’s leaderships, which we believe un-revolutionary.

Even with the negative experiences, RPM-M and RPA have still considered the CPP and NPA members as comrades in the struggle for the liberation of the oppressed. We have never considered the Party and its members as enemy of the working class, but we are always in a situation to defend our ranks from the antagonistic threats and actions coming from your side.

We welcome the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chairman and National Democratic Front of the Philippines’ political consultant Jose Maria Sison‘s opening for reconciliation with the “Rejectionist” factions and revolutionary movements in the Philippines.

We declare a unilateral ceasefire to CPP-NPA as an organization and to its members, if this development means victory for the democratic forces in the country and a push for a more dynamic and renewed revolutionary movement in the Philippines.

We may differ in our methods but this reconciliation process must lead us to a unified framework because we aim the same – advance democratic reforms without losing the sight to the substantial elimination of oppression against the masses, working class and minority nationalities.
