‘THE SINGING TERRORIST’ The death of Gregorio “Ka Roger” Rosal was announced Sunday by the Communist Party of the Philippines. Rosal dubbed himself “the singing terrorist.” JOAN BONDOC

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) on Sunday finally announced the death four months ago of its former spokesperson, Gregorio Rosal, popularly known as “Ka Roger.”

“Ka Roger passed away on June 22, 2011, at the age of 64 after suffering a heart attack in a guerrilla front in Luzon,” the CPP Central Committee said in a statement sent to the

Inquirer.

The CPP website (www.philippinerevolution.net) carried a black and white portrait of the man who for many years served as the face of the rebel organization and its armed component, the New People’s Army (NPA). Above the portrait were the words, “Gregorio ‘Ka Roger’ Rosal, 1947-2011.”

The condition of the Mao cap-wearing rebel leader had long been the subject of speculation after the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police repeatedly reported that they had received information Rosal had died of a lingering illness two years ago.

But the military failed to confirm its veracity.

Explanation for delay

The CPP attributed the delay in announcing the death of Rosal, a native of Ibaan town in Batangas, to “intense military operations” which prevented party organs from informing his daughters immediately.

“Ka Roger’s siblings have also been informed of his passing,” the CPP said on the website.

A son of impoverished sugar plantation workers, Rosal became a trade union organizer and student activist before going underground in the mountainous Quezon province in the 1970s.

He was captured a year after the dictator Ferdinand Marcos imposed martial law in 1972, but escaped months later.

Rosal was among guerrilla leaders subjected to an unspecified punishment by the rebels for failing to take a strong stand against an internal purge of suspected military spies in the late 1980s.

Rosal served as rebel spokesperson from the 1980s to the 1990s, using laptop computers, two-way radios and cellphones to bring guerrilla statements  to households through radio and TV interviews. He often arranged visits for journalists to rebel encampments, regaling them by playing his harmonica.

‘Singing terrorist’

After a news conference in a pine-clad northern forest in 2004, Rosal pulled out his harmonica. “I’ll provide the caption for you: the singing terrorist,” he said as photographers captured the moment.

After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, the Filipino guerrillas became a target of the US-led global war on terror. Washington placed them on its list of terrorist organizations.

Luis Jalandoni, the Netherlands-based spokesperson of the National Democratic Front (NDF), the political arm of the CPP, said Rosal was the effective voice of the revolution.

“He was so loved by the masses,” he said.

Alex Padilla, the government’s chief negotiator in the peace talks with the rebels, said the last time the government panel asked its counterpart about reports of Rosal’s death was in February. The NDF had said then that Rosal was alive and well, he said.

“I guess his death was a loss for the movement,” Padilla said.

Malacañang did not comment on the report.

Series of strokes

The CPP said Rosal suffered his first stroke in 1997 but was able to recover and return to his work.

“He suffered his second stroke in 2000 and had to go on leave for a few months. But as he did after his first attack, he strove to return to his revolutionary work in the countryside,” it said.

Rosal again suffered a stroke on May 1, 2006, which caused him more damage. It “led to the gradual deterioration of his condition until it became impossible for him to resume his previous tasks,” the CPP statement said.

“From 2006 to 2011, Ka Roger was cared for by a team of comrades who ensured his security, medical needs and quality of life. Although he could no longer assume his usual responsibilities, he kept in close touch with the Information Bureau and was consulted from time to time on its work,” the CPP said.

Even with his disabilities, Rosal still woke up at dawn to listen to the news, it said.

“At times, he was able to review statements issued by the party. He was deeply concerned upon hearing about media killings and about the deaths of several reporters in the Maguindanao massacre in November 2009,” the group said.

Offers of medical aid

“Ka Roger spurned offers of medical assistance from the AFP. He was aware that these were traps and saw the hypocrisy behind them, as the military never withdrew the bounty on his head and relentlessly pursued operations for his capture,” the CPP said.

The last time Rosal issued his New Year greetings was in January.

On its website, the CPP said that on October 15, all units of the NPA would fall in formation to pay tribute to Ka Roger.

“At exactly 12 noon, they will carry out a gun salute in his memory. All units of the CPP and revolutionary mass organizations are enjoined to launch tribute meetings to remember Ka Roger and his contributions to the historic revolutionary struggles of the Filipino people,” the group said.

Condolences

The AFP extended its condolences to Rosal’s family.

“When the information about the lingering illness of Rosal reached the AFP, the leadership of the AFP through Southern Luzon Command commander Lieutenant General Roland Detabali immediately offered medical treatment upon his return to the government fold,” said Colonel Arnulfo Burgos Jr., the military public affairs chief.

“May his demise provide opportunities for enlightenment to some of our misguided brothers and sisters who continue to resort to armed struggle as a means to achieve their interests,” Burgos said. With a report from AP

    To be frank about it, this is good news to the people of the Philippines he ironically presumed to speak for and who he claimed their movement is all about. Let’s see in the website of these terrorists the  endless line of grateful Filipinos paying their last respects to this man who, like Jalandoni and Sison, have no compunctions about wreaking violence and terrorizing fellow Filipinos.

        Sigurado ka salot? Kasi yan lagi nyo nakikita. Aral naman kayo konti sa prinsipyo ng mga iyan. Syempre iuulat ng media yung kontra dyan kasi syempre pag nga naman kalokohan ng mga mapagsasamantala di nila iuulat. Andyan ang pera eh.

        Kahit kikilan ko ang pamilya mo? At pag tumangging magbigay ng bigas o parte ng kita ng pamilya mo, pasasabugin ko bahay mo at businesses nyo?

        Ganyan ang gusto mo mangyari bata. Wag kang masyadong magpaka-smart, yang pinagmamalaki mong alam mo ALAM NG BUONG MUNDO. Ikaw ang dapat mag-aral pa para hindi ka ma-brainwash.

        Hindi perpekto ang gobyerno, hindi perpekto ang sistema pero LALONG HINDI PERPEKTO ANG MGA GERILYA.

        Bakit magbabayad ng revolutionary tax ang mga tao, nagpapagawa ba ng kalsada ang mga NPA? Nagpapagawa ba sila ng ospital? Nagpapagawa ba sila ng power plants para mabuhay ng maayos ang mga nasa nayon?

        HINDI! Kaya wag kang magmarunong bata. Mag-aral ka pa. Hindi porke’t nakabasa ka ng libro eh akala mo yan ang nangyayari sa palibot mo. Kulang ka pa sa pag-iisip. Magbasa basa ka pa.

        Ay kayo po dapat mag-aral kasi hanggang ngayon nabubuhay pa rin kayo sa ilusyon na oks na ang status quo. Saka sino ba nagrereport ng masama ang mga NPA? Di ba yung media na karamihan mga elitista ang may-ari. Sinabi ba ng mga gerilya na perpekto sila? Kaya nga nagsusuri rin ang mga iyan.

        Tama ka sa punto na kontrolado ng media ang mga balita, pero hindi ba’t ang mga komunistang rebelde mismo ang nagsasabi na sila ang may kagagawan sa pagpatay kay ganito? ang pagkidnap kay ganito? ang paglilitis kay ganito? ang pagpatay kay ganito? ang pagpapasabog sa ganito?

        Kayo po yata dapat ding matauhan kasi masyado ang sterotyping nyo sa Komunismo at sobra ang ilusyon nyo na ang status quo ay sobrang ganda habang meron pa ring land grabbing, etc. Neo-libralist masydo nyo kasi sinasampalatayanan. Di pa nga nangyayari ang komunismo sa Pilipinas dami nyo kaagad kontra. Palibhasa nasa higher class kayo kaya takot kayong bitiwan ang antas nyo. At least sinasabi nga ng mga taga NPA pag may ginawa silang aksyon eh itong GRP, may testigo na nga suko hanggang langit pa ang pagtanggi na di sila nag-tortur o nandudukot. Kapag may bihag ang NPA  at nababalita, may biktima ba ng force disappeances? Pinapakita pa nga nila kondisyon nila.

Tell me which communist country had succeeded in uplifting peoples life? North korea?Cuba? even china shifted to gradual democracy di lang nila maamin. At yung mga sinasabi mong land grabbing? kung may titulo ka ng lupa, No one can simple grab your land. If there is any, instead na mamundok ka magaral ka ng abugasya at ipagtangol mo sa korte kung sino man yung inagawan gn lupa ng may titulong hawak,, Sa pelikula mo lang mapapnood yang sinasabi mo at noon 70’s to 80’s na pilikula pa..

        @laki, ikaw ba may personal na karanasan sa grupong ito? kung wala ako ay galing sa lugar na kanilang pinerwisyo. dalawa sa mga kamaganak ko ay sumapi pa sa grupong ito at yong isa ay naging isang tanyag na kumander pa nila. ito’y sa kabila ng mahigpit na pagtutol ng buong mag-anak namin dahil nga sa mga gawain nito at posibling ito rin ang puputol sa kanilang buhay. at nang lumaon nga ito ang nangyari.

        sa aking karanasan at iba pang mga kanayon ko noon ay talagang masasabi mo na salot nga sila sa pamumuhay ng mga mamayan. bigyan kita ng halimbawa, sa pagsusumikap ng mga magulang ko sa probinsya, bilang isang gurong pampubliko ang nanay at tagapagmahala ng isang malaking tindahan naman ang tatay ko, sila ay nakapagipon at sa pamamagitan din ng pangungutan sa gobyerno (loan ng nanay ko) nagkaroon kami ng maliit niyogan (coconut plantation) at maliit rin na fishpond. ngayon ito ang masama, sa kabila ng dugo’t pawis ang puhunan ng mga magulang ko ito’y parang itinuring na pagmamayari na ng hukbong samahan npa. di sila makapaghintay bagkos sila pa magdidikta sayo kung kailan dapat magkopra, kung kailan dapat anihin ang isda at sila pa magdidikta kung magkano dapat ibibigay sa kanila. kahit na alangan pa sa pag-ani o pagkopra kahit na paliwanagan mo, sila pa rin dapat ang masusunod! kahit na di naman masyado nakakaluwag sa buhay na kagaya namin nun di nila ito pinapalampas at kailangan sumunod sa kanila. at isang pagkakataon lang na di mo sila napagbigyan siguradong may mangyayari sa iyo o sa pamilya ninyo.

        kung ikaw nama’y magsusumbong sa militar mas mabuti pang umalis ka na lang sa lugar nyo. at yon nga ang naging dahilan kung bakit namin iniwan ang aming bayan at bandang huli ito na rin ang dahilan kung bakit kami nagkaroon ng problema sa iniwanan naming kakunting lupain at negosyo. marahil tama ang mga tagaroon sa amin na isisi sa mga rebelde na ito ang mabagal na pagunlad ng aming bayan kumpara sa mga bayan na hindi nila nahawakan na sa ngayon ay maunlad na.

        kaya dyan sa sinasabi mo na pag-aralan ang katutuhanan at kung sino nagpapasama sa grupo ng npa ay mas mahigit pa dyan ang dinanas ko at aking pamilya, gayon din iba pa na mamayan sa lugar na yon. kaya masasabi ko na, at sa nangyari kamakailan lang sa davao ay dapat lang talagang kundinahin sila! masasabi ko rin na talagang balakid din sila sa pagunlad natin.

        subalit, sa kabila nito hindi rin siguro tama na pagtawanan o kutyain ang pagkamatay ni ka roger na maaari ngang may paniniwala na iba o malayo sa tunay na mga ginagawa ng mga tauhan nito.

        Laki, sinasabi mo na ang media na karamihan ay pag-aari ng mga elitista ang nagrereport ng masama tungkol sa NPA.

        Si Ka Roger naman noong nabubuhay pa as spokesman of NPA ginagamit ang tinutukoy mong media kapag gusto niyang mag-issue ng statement. As the article states Ka Roger often arranged visits for journalists to rebel encampments. 

        Kinokondena mo ang media samantalang ginagamit naman ito at pinapakinabangan ng NPA na ipinaglalaban mo.

        Isn’t it ironic that you are trying to paint a noble ideology for NPA but what is showing is hypocrisy?

        anong prinsipyo ang pinagsasabi mo bata? Yung pagbomba sa cellsite,pagsunog sa mga ariarian, paghingi ng revolutionary tax? This is terrorism at its worst form, and no moral principle speaks about this barbaric acts such as this. The government has the rights to ask for tax because they make roads, they build brdges,schools, and maintain’s the economy afloat. Although di sya perpekto pero at least those officials in the government are elected by the people and fallowing the mandates of the constitutions. Yang iniidulo mong CPP/NPA are nothing but bandits that creates theiir own law at their convenience. Ngayon pa nga lang na nandyan sa mga bundok yung mga NPA eh yung mga officials nila nagpapapaksasa na sa ibang bansa, sa tingin mo kapag sila ang may hawak ng government eh may mabubuting gagawin yang mga yan?? Magsumikap ka na lang bata atibaling mo ang panahon mo sa pagpapunlad ng sarili mo.If you succeed in life at di ka naging pabigat sa bansa, you are considered as makabayan .Yan ang totoong definition ng makabayan. Yung pinapaunlad ang sarili at tumutuong sa pagsulong ng pagunlad ng bayan. Di yung rally ng rally at angcacuase ng traffic jam.. tapos pag di nakatapos ng paaaral dahil sa kakarally eh mamumundok at manghihingi ng revolutionary tax kuno para pangkain nyo..

        It’s a pity you think that way.

        If you want to change something YOU HAVE TO DO IT FROM THE INSIDE not from outside. You understand that? NPAs are just as corrupt as the politicians they accuse. They just continue their so called crusade because they’re offered some from of protection from the REAL LAW by practicing their own form of law.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2WR4C4UEXKKVSJZWDL3FINNRQU Buddha Follower

    I think he’s dead for a lot longer time (maybe years ago), they just don’t want to admit it. When was the last time Rosal spoke on national radio?

    Probably a computer literate guerrilla saw apple’s tribute to Steve so they just copied it, just like they’re copying the government by imposing taxes on the people and killing them at the same time.

    Sison and Jalandoni will die just like Rosal but the difference is both guys will enjoy a comfortable bed as their deathbed while Rosal will be in some shack full of mosquitoes. SIson and Jalandoni are the ones giving orders to these poor guerrillas but then they have no one to blame but themselves for allowing Sison and Jalandoni to be their puppet master.

    I don’t agree with the guerrilla movement because I think a lot of them are just scalawags who are running away from law and joining a guerrilla group will give them shelter and guns of course. They say they’re fighting for a just society but then they accept bribes from dirty politicians, kill innocent civilians and bombard businesses. 

    Who is just, one may ask? A government may not be a perfect one but it is elected BY THE PEOPLE. A guerrilla movement such as the NPA WAS NEVER ELECTED NOR PREFERRED BY THE PEOPLE it says it “protects”.

    A communist party in the congress would be ok but an armed communist terrorizing people IS NEVER GOOD.

      Have you read what is the reason why did the CPP delayed the announcement of the demise of Ka Roger? If they announced the death quickly, it will create some danger for his family and relatives living in the lowlands. Also have you checked and analyze what are the teachings of the CPP before making that kind of judgment? Try to analyze first before giving that kind of answers. Still I can’t blame you on that because you been part as well of the system. Study the theories and practices of the CPP NPA and just dont rely on a media owned by elitists.

Don’t they kidnap people and try in their kangaroo court? Don’t they bombard businesses who refuse to pay them “revolutionary tax”? Don’t they KILL PEOPLE?

        NPAs collect revolutionary taxes from businesses operating inside their turf to support their movement.  In return, they get protection. To the government, that is illegal of course. They term it as extortion.  

        Government collects taxes from all pinoys and businesses to support its services.  In return, tax-paying pinoys get mugged and killed on the streets by hoodlums and fall victims to extortionists in government.  WTF, I’d rather give to NPAs to exterminate these leeches in government!

    sometimes when someone dies, one can only look back at the life of that person and be sympathetic despite one’s differences on fundamental principles and persuasions. ka roger’s cause believes that revolution is the only way. i, on the other hand believe in continued public discourse and education as a more acceptable way. (or better yet, see the french model.)

    i dunno, i somehow agree that the means to produce must be owned by a communal state but i also believe in free enterprise. between the two extremes there must be a middle ground. (see the china experiment; eurocommunism) 

    his beliefs though different than mine doesn’t make ka roger less patriot than everyone else. i sincerely believe that he too, manifested his love for this country in a manner he knew best.

    Laki, you better call Ridon and other leaders of the CPP/NDF youth to defend your movement in this forum.You are not up to the job. Imagine saying that we can oppose you after you have taken over the country! You seem to believe that just like you, we all still need to grow up.   But even if you could bring in those  heavyweights or Jalandoni and Sison themselves, they will be unable to answer all the questions and charges against your heartless and repressive system raised by us. Communism is untenable.  The only way you could win an argument  and make people accept your system is to level a gun at them. But then that does not even work because you have been roaming the countryside with your guns for four decades and your revolution is still in square 1. While waiting for them to log in, try your mettle on my last post again:  “Okey, what is your principle  on freedom of the press and of expression? When you finally take over in this country, will we still enjoy
    expressing our opinion and sentiments in forums like these? Will the Inquirer or any other free press still exist? What happens to people who just like what you are doing now will dare to voice dissent against the government, your government?”

    Communism won’t do any good to people. North korea is a living proof. When germany was still divided, The democratic country prosper while its communist half starve to death and so they embrace democracy and become one.Vietnam and China felt the difficulty in uplifting their lives too so they started to open up and slowly turned into Democracy, but for their leaders to stay in power they put smoke screen to make it look like still a communist country but in the end still ventures into capitalism and Democracy. As their people gets more educated and felt freedom of Democracy is sweet and freedom is comfort, their people are slowly driving their government to formally endorse democracy. So I encourage those who still hides in the shadow of communism, I know you are just mislead by some people who could not move on so their resort to parasitism, a better way to describe communism, uplift your life by embracing change and feel the breeze of freedom that Democracy can give. Just don’t abuse this freedom and people will leave in harmony and you would see that life is worthy of living after all. Study hard, learn how to survive in fast moving word, earn a descent living, raise a family, and guide your children to follow a path that is right.. That’s how you should live your life. Don’t waste it on some ideology na hinde naman naaamgkop sa tao para mabuhay.

    It is a failure, it is a mistake. These NPA talk about noble and grandeur things but the truth is they are brigands, thieves and robbers.
    Without saying anything, they come when the small farmer is winnowing his harvest. When these criminals see that there is enough for them, they just fill their sacks and walk away. No words spoken or exchanged, their guns speak for themselves. (Please don’t ask me if I have proof, my father is already 90 yrs. old but with clear mind, you can talk to him for a first person account).

    I don’t think we can eradicate these kind of people. This movement CPP/NPA is no where to go right now and they started to lose their key people who belong to the generation of the 70’s/80’s. They were able to fool a lot of people or young minds before because there was no other way to communicate with them other than by straight talk thru recruitment highlighting the ills of society, be it in government, standard of living, religion, etc. But, the main factor is poverty. They had something better to offer and those innocent minds, grabbed it because they did not have any choice, not realizing it is only temporary. Now, with the advent of easy means of communication electronically these movements will disappear by process of attrition. Most people from all walks of life know now what happened to the movement in Russia and China as well as Cuba who is considering major change in their constitution. These communist countries finally realized that they can not stay isolated from the rest of the world. They need people from outside to support their economy. These run-away kids will soon find out that there is better life outside of the jungle or mountains. Most of them joined in for once in a life time ego-trip or adventure. Keep bombarding them with more information of what’s happening around them and sooner or later they’ll come out from their bad dreams.

    According to the CPP, KaRoger died of heart attack.
    Previously, according to  CPP, Ka Roger suffered strokes in 1997, 2000 and in 2006.

    Heart Attack is different from (brain) stroke.How could the CPP be sure of what the cause of Ka Roger’s death really was. It seemed to be that no one, even the CPP know exactly how Ka Roger died…. but I know exactly how he lived. He lived like rats.

    The reason why the rats survived in the urban and in the jungle was and is because of the inefficient cats. There are efficient cats but they lack in numbers. The actual numbers of the 2nd ID in the southern luzon and Tagalog region plus the 9th IB in the entire Bicol Region are inflated. There is a lot of ghost soldiers.

    puts more value on the idea rather than on the man himself. Not to mention, “ism”

    RIP,Gregorio Rosal.
    Our misguided brothers and sisters in the hills should just come back and join the mainstream society. What have they gained after all those years anyway? I heard of one NPA leader who convinced his son to join him in his ‘struggle for democracy’ What happened? It wasn’t long after his young son ‘followed in the footsteps of his Dad’ when there was an AFP-NPA clash somewhere in the mountains. This son was killed during the gun-battle. Innocent young life. Wrongly taught by the father. That young son could have gone to school, took up a degree, found a job, had a family and lived a life of his own.
    According to reliable sources, Jalandoni and other self-exiled CPP/NPA leaders are living a good and comfortable lives in their host countries now. Why can’t our brothers and sisters hiding in the mountains realize that they have been abandoned by their so-called leaders?

      When the first set of communists die off, there will be no more personalities that replace them. The ideologies they so vainly tried to impose on the people and the understanding that’s necessary to appreciate what they did will die with them. What’s going to be left is an organization that has lost its original purpose. Expect NPA to turn into a complete bandit group with no real purpose other than to serve as a bulwark for the lazy, the criminal, and the misdirected.

    History will absolve Ka Roger. He symbolized the struggle of ordinary folk–the peasant masses,
    workers, the urban poor, employees and small professionals–who had
    lofty aspirations of liberation from the ruling system that oppressed
    and exploited them!

    • Anonymous

      Listen dude, the real struggle is a 15 hour day job and raising kids right, and paying taxes. Any man can run to the mountains, steal a weapon or two and call revolution what is basically stealing from the common man in the form of revolutionary tax. The real revolution is by those who work. The PROLETARIAT. Us. KAMI na nagttrabaho. Ironically those who call to represent us are either out-of-job bandits, misdirected students, and criminals. These are not the masses, and for that reason, even with 40 years of existence, they never had the support of any level of society.

        The PROLETARIAT. Kayo na nagtatrabaho. Saan at ano ang trabaho maituturing ba na oppressive ang situation mo….any man can run to the mountains, steal a weapon or two and call revolution? that’s banditry if it is not principled cause. You should live like an ordinary worker, farmer where NPA operates and see if their cause is really a redundant one…….if you’re just like everyone in this forum working in front of computer and claiming they (NPA) never had the support of any level of society, heed my advice and learn the facts by going to countryside so you’ll also know that masses are not only misdirected students, and criminals, you’ll also find out the support of all levels of society.

        That’s cute. I may talk like a pencil pusher but I know first hand how the NPA operates and how they’re treated by the ordinary townfolk. Were it not for revolutionary taxes, my hometown would have long since prospered. Because the NPA chose to stay, they live with poor cellphone signals, thin  margins of living for their hard work, and the constant fear of being tried in your mock people’s court. Baka po kayo ang nasisilaw sa mga pangako ng kilusan. Kung totoong may suporta kayo ng masa, bakit asa kanayunan pa rin kayo hanggang ngayon? Bakit 40 taon na ang nakalilipas, di nyo pa rin magawa nag ginawa ni Mao? Dahil hindi nyo makumbinsi ang masa sa pinaglalaban nyo. Mahirap gawing kaibigan ang sarili mong binibiktima kasi. You want support? Go after the Amaptuans. The Arroyos. Not the mining manager. Not the security guard. And certainly not the lowly private.

        hindi mo alam kung bakit 40 years na ay may rebellion pa at hindi magtatagal yan kung wala suporta na masa dahil ayon sa datus na binibigay ng AFP ay 3,000 lamang ang puwersa nila. Pero bakit hanggang ngayon ay nandiyan pa rin sila? ilan ba ang bilang ng npa sa isang territoryo nila at ilan naman ang bilang ng mga sundalo, pulis at cafgu? di ba sila bilang pa lang talo na ang npa pero bakit hindi matalo? dahil ba sa suporta ng masa? dahil kung wala suporta ng masa ay matagal na naglaho ang mga yan….do the math and you’ll wonder why they still exists…….3,000 guns with 3,000 guns against hundreds of thousands of army, pulis and cafgu plus their civilian assets……..no match, right? but 40 years after they presence still felt…..

        It doesn’t take much to have a couple of militants to hide in the sprawling forests of the Philippines and have them do ambush runs. If some fail, you don’t need a lot of people to brainwash to your side to replace the fallen soldiers. That’s the real math behind things. That’s guerilla tactics. If the roles were reversed, I’m sure the NPA would also have a hard time finishing off the AFP.

        The “support” you mention is nothing more than money you extort from people. Only a few would willingly give the NPA money.

        Survival is not a proof of popularity. If that were the case, then Jimmy Santos would be the most famous comedian of our time already. He’s not. He is not funny, he only has one funny act and he’s been milking it for almost two decades and the fact that he’s still around is just as irritating. That’s the NPA, basically.

        If that support is as big as you make it to be, those masses should have just overrun Malacanang a long time ago. We only have a scant police force, the ratio of police/soldier to civilian is heavily skewed in favor of civilians. You can point to those government forces having guns, but I’m sure you’re also aware how easy it is to procure/make your own guns, so it’s a non-issue, especially considering how woefully under-equipped the Philippine forces are.

        So with easily-procured guns, where then is your swelling support? If revolution is what is needed, you could’ve done a Mao-style revolt a long time ago, the numbers are in your favor. That is, if the support you mention is as big as you make it to be…

        My personal conviction is what I believe as the truth. I work my butts out to feed my family and to send my childern to school. I can’t see any reason why I should be paying revolutionary tax. If this is the truth that you’re looking for,then you may embrace it but not me. I believe in an honest pay from an honest work. All these extortionists’ operandi is to send you a piece of note asking for your support for their cause while their acclaimed leaders are partying in the Netherlands and
        Germany. Are these the truth you are seeking for???.Please open your eyes and don’t be misguided.

      communism will die a painful death soon. There are 92 million people in the Philippines and they only have approx. 4000 members in the NPA. The numbers speaks for itself. And I would bet that some 30% of your members almost wanted to give up but could not do so because they fear for their life and their family. It is now very unpopular because their ideology has no justification anymore and even the country that is used to be a communist country is slowly changing phase.take china and vietnam for an example. And having north korea as the only legitimate communist country right now has billion of people starving right now and even their army are eating grass. So ask your self, do you still want to push for communism? still too stubborn? There is no way you can convince people to join your crusade as your ways is not convincing. Burning establishements, intimidating busnessess, killing people,extortion, never ending rally, bombing cellsites,kidnapping people are activities not of a principled man but terorist. How can you educate people that your actions are for the benefits of the poor people when even the dumbest person on the street can tell that what you are doing is purely terrorism and economic sabotage.

    Aspo, when I say MABUHAY, I mean his ideals, dreams and principles not just for himself but also for the Filipino people, including you. 

    The government engages in peace talks. This means that the rebels have strength to pressure the government to enter such agreement.

    You talk about OFWs. These people are just being exploited by other countries. You call them heroes because they remit a lot of dollars. You call them heroes for leaving the country and being slaves by foreign capitalists. They are supposed to help our country  for national industrialization but they leave. Why? Because they see no hope in the current system. They represent the inability of the government to support its own people; to provide basic social services.

      I do not beleived that you guys have that strenght but i do beileved that theres a lot of issues inside the group and wants to play a wild card to cover up that weaknesses.It’s a common speech of  assurance to their members otherwise it falls fast.

      While I call OFW’s as our heros which I think we are (I am one of them), we work hard to put out country into progressive one while you guys are giving us more pain.Can you guys think of something else that is more lawfull than what you are doing now?…

      China was used to be a hardcore Communist country with peoples quality of living was defined as far worst than ours…how did they change that image fast?…find it by yourself and you will surprise.By the way, they spent too much on english class and there fashion are more western than being Asian.

      Stop the fight bro, let’s make our country a better place to compete.Let’s educate our kids on how to be productive under the law and don’t teach them how to hate.It is not the meaning of a real warrior.

      By the way, I have my eldest daugther working as an engineer abroad. it is a big relief for us.I worked hard for that to happened without governments’ help.I cannot call it “SWERTE” because I work for it.

      Complaining about the lack of social services from the government is not a good reason to fight.
      Worked hard, educate your kids is not that easy but it will pays off big time in the future.Foriegn industrialized first world countries still has a problem on social services…so do not make this as an excuse for fighting against the government and killing our people they do not deserved that.Play under the law, act professionally and I can guarantee you and your family will live happily !!!!
