AFP/PNP will fail in destroying the revolutionary movement in Negros Island

Ka Juanito Magbanua, spokesperson of the New People’s Army – Negros Island Apolinario Gatmaitan Command (AGC-NPA), through a statement said that the efforts of succeeding regimes to defeat the revolutionary movement in Negros Island will end in failure.

Magbanua asserted that the guerrilla fronts in Negros are deeply rooted among the broad masses and enjoys the never-ending support of the people, thus, he is sure that the ruling class and its mercenary instruments, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) cannot render it inconsequential.

“The leaders of the 3rd Infantry Division (3ID) and its brigades are shameless in squandering the people’s coffers to finance a campaign of deception under the ‘anti-insurgency’ program for the purpose of covering the worsening crisis further aggravated by billions of corruption of the Duterte regime amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.

He criticized the AFP/PNP’s boastful declaration of “dismantling the north and southeast front of the NPA” and its intrigues against the leadership of the Communist Party of the Philippines.

The AFP/PNP fights for the interest of the ruling class not because of its sincerity in serving the people but to preserve the oppressive and exploitative system and due to the salary they receive, he said.

If the military and police serve the people, they should not follow the “counter-insurgency” program of the tyrant and butcher Duterte regime that does not serve the interest of the people instead wreaks massive havoc to lives and livelihood and terrorizes the people. To the AGC-NPA, they [AFP/PNP] launch an unjust war.

Meanwhile, the NPA is adeptly and absolutely led by the CPP in the national and regional level.

“As true fighters of the people, it struggles for the interest of the broad masses of the people especially the workers and peasants,” said Magbanua.

It wages a just war to eliminate the oppressive and exploitative semifeudal and semicolonial system ruled by the big landlords, big comprador bourgeoisie and imperialist US, he added.

Furthermore, revolutionary practice teaches that through wholeheartedly serving the interest of the people one can surely attain their inexhaustible support.

Magbanua said that “because hunger and poverty continues to worsen due to massive corruption and the inutile and militarist response of the Duterte regime to the COVID-19 problem, certainly armed revolution will intensify and spread throughout Negros island and the entire country.”

He pointed out that the harm caused by the butcher and mercenary AFP/PNP under the Joint Task Force Negros is but temporary and will not hinder the aspiration of all revolutionary forces to resolutely advance the armed struggle that has been showered with the blood of revolutionary martyrs.

Finally, he said that the best tribute to the departed heroes and martyrs of the revolution is mounting tactical offensives to make those with blood debts against the people and the revolution pay dearly.###
