FRSO salutes the National Democratic Front of the Philippines on 50th anniversary

Dear Comrades,

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), Freedom Road Socialist Organization sends warm and militant greetings. The achievements of the NDFP are legion and inspiration to revolutionaries everywhere. We are certain that efforts of the NDFP to build the national democratic movement and assisting the peoples war will meet with even great successes in the future.

For the past 50 years the NDFP and its constituent organization have crystallized the aspirations of the peoples of the Philippines to end the rule of imperialism, feudalism, and bureaucrat-capitalism. From the fight against martial law under the rule of the first Marcos regime, right up until the today, the NDFP has stood in the forefront of battle for national liberation and genuine democracy.

The NDFP has successfully defeated wave after wave of repression, while growing in strength and stature. Mao Zedong spoke of fearing neither hardship nor death. The NDFP is the embodiment of that revolutionary spirit.

The people of the Philippines and the people of the U.S. share a common enemy. The monopoly capitalists, the imperialists that oppress the people of the U.S., have built an evil empire that spans much of the globe and dominates the Philippines. Anything that weakens U.S. imperialism is in the interests of both our peoples. Your victories are our victories. Together we will win!

Long live the National Democratic Front of the Philippines!

With communist greetings,

Mick Kelly, Political Secretary of the Standing Committee, FRSO
