Liliosa Sumilang, spokesperson of the CCP’s Metro Manila chapter, called the just concluded congress a success as it saw mostly young members take up to the task of continuing the nearly five-decade fight of the revolutionary movement as they rise up to become leaders of its central committee.

“The second congress presented a clearer picture of its analysis of the concrete conditions of Philippine society, and its national democratic line and program for waging a people’s democratic revolution,” she said.

Among the supporters who joined in the rally were at least 10 kids no older than 15 years old.
