The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the entire revolutionary movement pay highest tribute and give their Red salute to Comrade Josephine Mendoza (Ka Sandy), Committee Central member and second deputy secretary of the regional Party in Southern Tagalog.

Ka Sandy passed away on November 10 at the age of 59. In various places of her revolutionary work, she was also known as Nene, Minerva and Victoria Mirayan.

Ka Sandy devoted more than four decades of her life serving the revolution and the oppressed and exploited masses in the countryside and urban areas of the region.

Ka Sandy was a product of the outbreak of the movement against the Marcos Sr dictatorship in the 1980s. She joined the New People’s Army (NPA) in 1984 and served in the leading committees of the Party and NPA in the guerrilla fronts in Mindoro and as deputy secretary of the CPP committee in Palawan in the 1990s.

She contributed greatly to the revitalization of the urban revolutionary movement in the region from the 1990s. She led many mass struggles under the successive regimes of Estrada, Arroyo, Aquino, Duterte until the return of the Marcos family to power.
