We send militant greetings on the 40th anniversary of the re-establishment of the Communist Party of the Philippines. These past 40 years have been marked by heroic sacrifices and great victories for your Party, its army and for the patriotic people of the Philippines. We are confident that the future will be still more glorious, and will bring about a victory of the national democratic revolution, under the leadership of the working class and its Party, the Communist Party of the Philippines.
We have great respect for the ideological and political clarity of the CPP, along with your practical work. Not so long ago, more than a few forces in the world communist movement were wavering. Some even went over to the enemy. We appreciate the fact that your Party upheld the banner of Marxism-Leninism along with the contributions of Mao Zedong. Your firm stand was and is a great contribution to the fight of working and oppressed people everywhere, including the United States. We are sure you will make even greater contributions in the period ahead.
Our organization has worked against the repression directed against the CPP by U.S. imperialism and its puppets. We will continue to do so in the future and will continue to oppose U.S. intervention in the Philippines.
The people of the Philippines and the people of the United States share a common enemy in U.S. imperialism, and the unity between the peoples of our respective countries will, over the long run. contribute to U.S. imperialism’s defeat. Recognizing this, we will work to develop the warm, fraternal relations that exist between our organizations.
Today, the imperialists are beset by crisis. Countries want independence, nations want liberation and people need revolution. We are sure that the revolutionary process in the Philippines will continue to advance under the leadership of the CPP.
Long live proletarian internationalism!
Long live Marxism-Leninism!
Long live the Communist Party of the Philippines!
With Communist greetings,
Freedom Road Socialist Organization
