NCMR holds a Party course in expansion area
A unit of the New People’s Army (NPA) in one of the expansion areas in North Central Mindanao Region (NCMR) daringly and determinedly launched a Basic Party Course (BPC) during last quarter of 2022. Despite various challenges, 17 NPA fighters successfully graduated from the course.
Sessions started on November 26, 2022 and ended on December 18, 2022. All BPC students were young peasants and have been members of the people’s army for 2-3 years.
During the study course, the people’s army deployed a unit for mass work and social investigation in nearby communities. Being in an expansion area that is under the fascist rule of reactionary state forces, mass action was just only beginning to pick up.
Study sessions were interrupted several times because the camp had to be moved to avoid enemy operations. Every time the camp moved, the students and instructors worked together to rebuild the school to continue their classes.
Despite the challenges, the unit persevered and completed their study course. “Most of them are high in spirits! It’s been a long time since the last course was launched,” said one of the instructors.
“I am more determined to work for the revolution because I learned about how the Party has surmounted past challenges and advanced,” said one student.
