Lighting candles, Red fighters of the New People’s Army (NPA) in Mindanao remembered and paid tribute to heroes and martyrs of the people’s democratic revolution. This is in line with the Day of Remembrance of martyrs last November 7 led by the National Democratic Front (NDF)-Mindanao. This was made to coincide with the 1917 victory day of the Russian socialist revolution.

The activity was launched in memory of Jorge Madlos (Ka Oris), NPA national spokesperson, Antonio Cabanatan (Ka Manlimbasog), a member of the CPP Mindanao Commission, Menandro Villanueva (Ka Bok), NPA national commander, and many other splendid party cadres who gave their life to the revolution.

In Surigao del Sur, local masses and Red fighters gathered in a simple activity. The fighters and people in attendance gave messages. They also seized the opportunity to stage cultural performances for the audience.

“It is just that we support and play our part in the struggle until victory,” said an attendee. Another one added, “the NPA is indeed the true defender and soldier of the oppressed masses.”

The NPA unit also launched a similar gathering in Agusan del Norte and other parts of Mindanao. The gatherings were filled with emotion but in the end, everyone reaffirmed their determination to carry forward the struggle.
