Press Statement

Stand with the Filipino People Against the Imperialist Master and the Puppet

By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Founding Chairman, Communist Party of the Philippines
Chief Political Consultant, NDFP Negotiating Panel

18 October 2003

I hereby stand with the Filipino people in demonstrating their outrage against US imperialism and the puppetry of the Macapagal-Arroyo regime through mass protest actions and the burning of US flags and the effigies of Macapagal-Arroyo and Bush junior on the occasion of the latter’s eight-hour visit to Manila today.

The occasion reminds the entire nation of the malevolent relationship between the imperialist superpower and the chief representative of local reactionary classes in perpetuating the semi-colonial and semi-feudal character of Philippine society, in escalating oppression and exploitation and maintaining the current anti-national, anti-democratic corrupt and brutal regime.

The imperialist master is on a rendezvous with his most servile puppet in Southeast Asia in order to exchange flatteries and celebrate their obscene relationship amidst the rapidly worsening global and domestic crisis due to the basic plunderous and aggressive character of monopoly capitalism. They are renewing their lopsided collaboration in hyping and pursuing the bankrupt policies of neoliberal globalization, state terrorism, wars of aggression such as those against Afghanistan and Iraq and the growing US military intervention in the Philippines.

I am deeply pleased that the recent publication of the books, Philippine Economy and Politics and US Terrorism and War in the Philippines, has somehow helped in the preparations for mass protest against the Bush visit. I hope that such educational material can continuously help to strengthen the resolve of the Filipino people to fight for national and social liberation against US imperialism and the local exploiting classes of big compradors and landlords.

I condemn the orders of the US-directed Macapagal-Arroyo regime to the military and police forces to show off and use force against the broad masses of the people in order to block, attack and frustrate the free exercise of the democratic right to speak and assemble. I urge the military and police personnel of the regime to desist from violating the rights of the people.

At the same time, I am confident that by their own patriotic determination and their resourcefulness and skills the broad masses of the people in the national capital region and nationwide will express in utmost clarity and full strength their repudiation of the historical, continuing and latest schemes of US imperialism and its local puppets against the Filipino nation. #
