People’s militias in Camarines Norte hold tribute
A unit of the people’s militia under the New People’s Army-Camarines Norte (Armando Catapia Command) silently performed a 21-gun salute in honor of Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria in tandem with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).
Led by the local Party branch and MB leadership, preparations for the tribute were undertaken, including the venue and invitations for people in the vicinity.
Despite being busy with production, local party units and members of mass organizations devoted two days to give the highest tribute to the great leaders and heroes of the Philippine revolution.
The activity was divided into two parts. In the first part, the 21-gun salute was performed for the Tiamzon couple and other revolutionary martyrs, after which the tribute of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee was discussed. In the second part, local mass organizations gave their messages and laid out their challenges and tasks.
Units of the people’s militia in the province under the guidance of local Party branches possess a strong spirit of resistance and are always ready to assist the NPA in defeating the fascist military and police. The people’s militias are made up of peasants who bear arms to defend their livelihood and rights against the exploitative and ruling classes.
