CPP denounces malicious lies and intrigues against Comrade Sison and Party leaders

By the Central Committee
Communist Party of the Philippines

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) can only express contempt at National Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales and his deputy Avelino Razon Jr. for feeding nothing but malicious disinformation to the media in a vain effort to sow intrigues against Comrade Jose Ma. Sison and the Party leadership. Aside from being total lies and intrigues, Gonzales and Razon's statements are full of self-contradiction, and only reveal the utter desperation they and their US and Malacañang bosses have turned to in their failure to stem the growth and advance of the Party and the revolutionary movement under its leadership.

We officially state outright that there has been no recent change at all in the central leadership of the Party. The Party's central leadership remains united and strong. Gonzales and Razon's line that there are cracks and discontent in the central committee is pure hogwash.

Gonzales and Razon's lies and intrigues are obviously aimed particularly at Comrade Sison. They and their imperialist masters have nothing but fear of Comrade Sison because of his effective leading role as a proletarian revolutionary teacher and guide. They continue to make impossible his safe return home in order to distance him from the revolutionary forces in the Philippines. Still, Comrade Sison continues to ably serve as a highly respected teacher and guiding beacon to the entire Party and revolutionary movement and to all patriots, democrats and anti-imperialist fighters in the Philippines and around the world.

The imperialists and their local henchmen thus want to do away with him so much that in 1994, they deployed to The Netherlands a team of assassins from the Philippines with specific instructions to liquidate him. They have colluded with the US government and Dutch police in 2007 to file trumped-up charges against him and throw him in prison. They have been pressing on with these charges even after Dutch courts have dismissed them several times as patently false and without basis. They have plotted with US intelligence agencies to subject him to extraordinary rendition to the US military base in Guantanamo or some other place where they can do what they want to his person.

By resorting to such foul tactics, Gonzales, Razon and other fascist henchmen of the US and Malacañang have only made a sorrier mess of their failed counterrevolutionary internal security Oplan Bantay Laya 1 and 2. Their lies and intrigues are drowned out by the accumulated and recent victories of the Philippine revolutionary movement whose advance they are powerless to prevent.
