Revolutionary authorities require candidates to observe policies within revolutionary areas

By Communist Party of the Philippines
For several weeks now, officials and mouthpieces of the Armed Forces of the Philippines have intensified their dirty psywar attacks against the revolutionary forces, disparaging the policy requiring political parties and candidates to observe policies and guidelines regarding the conduct of reactionary elections within areas under revolutionary jurisdiction.
It is unfortunate that the advisory issued the other day by the Commission on Human Rights somehow found itself caught in the web of tall tales spun by the AFP. It branded the revolutionary authorities’ issuance of permits to campaign as a “form of extortion” in “violation of human rights and international humanitarian law,” including the “rights to electoral participation and suffrage,” as well as the “rights to equality, free expression, freedom of movement, and freedom against discrimination.”
The following statement of August 22, 2009, is from Communist Party of the Philippines:
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today charged Gloria Arroyo with treason “for conspiring with the US to continue and make even more permanent US military presence in the Philippines–in violation of Philippine sovereignty and the puppet government’s own constitution.”
The CPP said that “The forging of a secret agreement between the Philippine puppet and her new imperialist master has become more obvious in a recent official announcement by the US Defense Department that the stationing of US military in the Philippine will continue.”

Gloria Arroyo’s supposed last State of the Nation Address (SONA yesterday was full of lies, fantasies and evasions. As expected by practically everyone — the opposition, the entire Filipino people and even her own allies and underlings — it was no different from her past SONA.
Not even the ghost writer believed what he wrote for her. No one, except the most naïve, believed what they heard. Not content with the orchestrated 126 “applauses” by her sycophants in the hall and hakot crowd at the gallery, her props even included canned computer-generated applause that sometimes missed the timing and became obvious.
Her pompous show yesterday was not in any way a state of the nation address. It was nothing but a “state of lies.”

The worsening global and domestic economic crisis is pressing down hard on the masses of the Filipino people. The rotten ruling system is sinking so deep, it is helpless to lift itself and is only pushing the masses into ever worse squalor. Millions are being dislocated by the crisis. It is becoming increasingly clear to the Filipino people that there is no other option but to wage revolutionary struggle to put an end to the rotten, plunderous and oppressive semicolonial and semifeudal system.
In the past few weeks, tens of thousands of Filipino workers in the semiconductor and other semimanufacturing sectors have lost their jobs as subsidiaries and comprador firms of multinationals in the export processing zones closed or drastically slowed down production. Government statistics show about 20,000 workers have been retrenched as of last week while up to 34,000 were working with reduced hours. The actual situation is much worse.
