Dear Comrades of the Maoist Communist Party Manipur,
On behalf of the Filipino revolutionary forces led by the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) conveys to you, the leadership of the Maoist Communist Party Manipur and the revolutionary forces and masses in Manipur, our warm greetings of comradeship and solidarity.
We deeply appreciate your lofty spirit and concrete act of proletarian internationalism in organizing a Solidarity Evening with Filipino Comrades in support of the Filipino people led by the Communist Party of the Philippines. We are glad that you are commemorating the 46th anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines, which was founded on 26 December 1968 and the 46th anniversary of the New People’s Army which was established by the CPP on 29 March 1969.
We wish you the utmost success in carrying out this proletarian solidarity action with forums, discussions and leaflet distribution in different schools, colleges, institutions and work places, and most importantly in revolutionary areas.
After 46 years of fierce revolutionary struggle for national liberation and democracy against US imperialism and the domestic reactionaries of big compradors, landlords and bureaucrat capitalists, the CPP, NPA and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, with the revolutionary masses of workers, peasants, women, youth, indigenous peoples, urban poor and other progressive sectors, have set up more than 110 guerrilla fronts and organs of political power in substantial portions of 71 out of a total 81 provinces.
The revolutionary forces carry out programs of land reform, health, revolutonary education, literacy and numeracy, culture and self-defense. They are determined to carry out the CPP program of people’s democratic revolution, and to raise the level of the people’s war from the stage of strategic defensive to the stage of strategic stalemate in the coming years.
We express our heartfelt thanks for your proletarian solidarity. While carrying out our revolutionary program on the basis of self-reliance, we are at the same time exerting efforts to help build a worldwide anti-imperialist and revolutionary solidarity.
We wish you the utmost success and more achievements and victories in your revolutionary struggle.
Long live the solidarity between the people of Manipur and the Filipino people!
Long live proletarian internationalism and Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!
Victory to the peoples’ revolutionary struggles!
Down with imperialism!
