U.S. Military Out of the Philippines

BY SEIJI YAMADA, ARCELITA IMASA, AND RICHARD ROTHSCHILLER Photograph Source: U.S. Army Photo by Sgt. 1st Class John Etheridge – Public Domain In January, the Philippine and US governments announced plans to allow U.S. military access to four additional bases in the Philippines. This agreement to base more U.S. military assets in the Philippines poses a threat to peace. Signaled by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton writing in Foreign Policy in 2011, the Obama administration made a “pivot” from the Middle East to the Asia-Pacific. Open markets in Asia provide the United States with unprecedented opportunities for investment, trade, and access to cutting-edge technology. Our economic recovery at home will depend on exports and the ability of American fir...

Jose María Sisón, father of the Filipino revolution

Tribute to a long life lived in the service of the liberation of humanity. Harpal Brar Subscribe to our  channel During the long years of his exile, Comrade Joma’s office in the Netherlands was a meeting place for anti-revisionists from all over the world.

The veteran Filipino revolutionary anti-imperialist fighter, Comrade Jose María Sisón, passed away on 16 December 2022. Our party sends its condolences to his family, comrades and friends.

Why the US Pivot to Asia Means War for Filipinos

BY SARAH RAYMUNDO Photograph Source: U.S. State Department – Public Domain U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in the Philippines to meet the newly elected President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. just as the Rim of the Pacific exercise, or RIMPAC, ends. As the world’s largest maritime military exercises, RIMPAC has intensified the militarization of the Asia-Pacific region since 1971 and has further strengthened the alignment of the newly-minted Marcos Jr. regime with U.S. military interests. Just as it did in the Pacific War against Japan during World War II, the Philippines is again playing an important anchor for U.S. economic and military interests in Southeast Asia in its standoff against China. The consequences for the Filipino people and environment are devastating. Fo...

A Refuge for Swindlers

Israel: A Refuge for Swindlers Israel is happy to welcome internationally looted funds into its economy, and cares little for the opinion of other nations. By Jonas E. Alexis, By Andrew Joyce, Ph.D. Most of the Jews are thieves.” Thus said the founding father of Israel, David Ben Gurion, when he heard about Jewish soldiers carrying Persian rugs from freshly looted Arab properties during the Arab-Israeli war. If he were around today, I don’t think Ben Gurion would find any reason to radically change his opinion, and he probably wouldn’t be surprised to find out that Israel has become a hub of international fraud. A recent hit for Netflix is the documentary The Tinder Swindler, which charts the outlandish career of Israeli con artist Shimon Hayut, the son ...

American Coups: a Recurring Nightmare?

BY ALFRED W. MCCOY Photograph Source: Corazon Aquino was inaugurated as the 11th president of the Philippines on February 25, 1986, at Sampaguita Hall (Now Kalayaan Hall) – Public Domain As an eyewitness, I can recall the events of January 6th in Washington as if they were yesterday. The crowds of angry loyalists storming the building while overwhelmed security guards gave way. The slavishly loyal vice-president who would, the president hoped, restore him to power. The crush of media that seemed confused, almost overwhelmed, by the crowd’s fury. The waiter who announced that the bar had run out of drinks and would soon be closing… Hold it! My old memory’s playing tricks on me again. That wasn’t the U.S. Capitol in January 2021. That was the Manila Hotel in the Philippines in ...
