In commemoration of its 52nd anniversary Saturday, the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) will hold “simple but joyous” activities, both in the rural areas and cities, despite the all-out attacks of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) especially against peasant communities.
“These activities are going to be held clandestinely to evade suppression by the fascist enemy’s military and police forces,” the CPP said in a statement.
The CPP slammed the AFP, which, they said, has so far failed to detect and prevent the gatherings and assemblies which have already been held in some revolutionary areas and which are to be held tomorrow and in the coming days.
In some villages, the Leftist group said that the masses and local NPA (New People’s Army) units were able to hold gatherings undetected by the AFP.
“The aim of these activities is to look back in the past year, take stock of the current situation, pay tribute to the heroes and martyrs of the Philippine revolution, and affirm the commitment and determination to serve the people and fight to end the reign of terror and evil of the tyrannical US-Duterte regime,” the CPP also said.
“Some of these meetings and gatherings double as education seminars to discuss the Party’s views about the current international and national situation,” the group added.
