The Alliance-Philippines, a progressive Filipino American alliance based in the United States, militantly mark the 44th year of the declaration of martial law in the Philippines with greater courage, renewed militancy and braver perseverance to fight the resurgence of fascism in the Philippines.

The Alliance is proud to have in its ranks the most proven, militant and jaded veterans of the First Quarter Storm (FQS) and people’s fighters against the 14 years of martial law and succeeding anti-people regimes in the Philippines.

We take pride in leading the successful struggle against the planned burial of dictator Marcos in the heroes cemetery in the United States and other parts of the world.

And we thank all our allies and supporter for this. We solemnly swear that will continue to fight the political comeback of the Marcos dynasty!

Red Salute

Today, we pay tribute to our departed comrades like Jose (Ka.Joe) Navidad, Maximiano Clamor, Beth Capili, Ester-Soriano Hewitt, Gene Viernes, Silme Domingo, and allies like Yuri Kochiyama, Grace Lee Boggs Don White and others who supported our movement and who fought the dictatorship.

We salute and also honor the tens of thousands who died during the struggle for national freedom and democracy during the 14 years of martial law in the Philippines.

We particularly salute Ka. Alfred Simbulan who died recently in the Philippines. He was the deputy commander for Intelligence of the New People’s Army (NPA), General Command.

No Honors for Dictator Marcos

As we face a renewed struggle against the political comeback of the Dictator’s family who supported by none other than the current President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte., we must heighten our struggle.

His planned burial for Dictator Marcos reeks of historical revisionism and political opportunism that we cannot let pass. We will continue to oppose and expose his violations of human rights and blatant extra-judicial killings We will fight all his anti-people dirty schemes all the way!

We call all our comrades, allies and the Filipino American community in general to stand firm and fight the resurgent Marcos dynasty.

We must be ready to fight the forces that want to resurrect the fascist past and plunged our nation into the abyss of the second coming of the fascist dictatorship.

NEVER AGAIN MARTIAL LAW! NEVER FORGET!

MAKIBAKA , HUWAG MATAKOT!
