AJLPP Condemns Dutch court orders prosecution of Prof. Jose Maria Sison

By AJLPP | The Dutch authorities are at it again!

The Alliance Philippines today condemns the Dutch court orders that give prosecutors the go-ahead Thursday to pursue murder charges against Philippine communist leader Jose Maria Sison, despite an earlier dismissal of the case.

"Today, the District Court of The Hague decided in camera that the Public Prosecution Service may continue the prosecution of Jose Maria Sison for involvement in, among other matters, a number of murders committed in the Philippines in 2003 and 2004," said a press statement of the court.

The AJLPP National Coordinator Mario Santos today said: “The order of Dutch authorities at the behest of its US imperialist allies is a terrible blow to the cause of peace in the Philippines and fodder for the continuing war of terror against the Filipino people. The peace talks between the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) have already been stalled for four years."

Manuel Marulanda, presente!

AJLPP | The Colombian revolutionary movement lost a great leader on March 26. Manuel Marulanda, born Pedro Antonio Marín Marín, was a founding member and top commander of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP). His life and political leadership spanned the entire history of the Colombian civil war.

Born to a peasant family around 1930, poverty forced Marín at age 13 to leave home and find work. In 1948, rising tensions between competing sectors of the Colombian ruling classes exploded with the assassination of leftist leader Jorge Eliécer Gaitán. The masses of oppressed people, living under brutal conditions, had looked to Gaitán to bring them relief. more...  0 Comments
