People’s CORE’s KmB Solidarity Statement

Warm greetings to the Kabataang maka-Bayan (KmB) in your 16th Founding Anniversary!

It is very apt that KmB was established on the day that the Great Plebian, Gat Andres Bonifacio was born. Andres Bonifacio, the founder of Katipunan is the hero of the working people who asserted our independence from Spain through armed struggle.

Being the initiator in the formation of KmB, People’s CORE is pleased with the development of your organization amidst political intrigues being peddled by other “left” and politically skewed formations.


KmB true to its political principle is unwavering in the pursuit of genuine freedom and democracy of the Filipino people while it struggle for justice and democratic rights of the peoples in the US. KmB persist in reaching out, educating and mobilizing the different sectors and continue to build united front and stronger alliances for the interest of the many. Be it campaign for broader democratic rights in universities, immigrant rights, social justice, veterans rights and other sectoral interests, KmB is always in the forefront of the struggle.

KmB should continue expanding its membership, putting up or strengthening its chapters in different cities. While there may be some realignment of your programs and priorities, you should not veer away from the original tenets of KmB’s formation. You should always consider the dialectical relationship of the struggle and interest of the Filipino back home with your struggle in the belly of the beast.

KmB should be relentless in your continuous ideological, political and organizational studies. But most of all, the members should integrate theory and practice. For how good is the theory if it is not done in practice?

People’s CORE joins you in your 16th founding celebration and solidarity night and I wish you all a productive evening!

Your comrade in struggle,

Joe Navidad
Executive Director
People’s CORE
