Last 24 November, Marcos Jr. issued Proclamation 404 supposedly to grant amnesty to armed groups including the CPP-NPA-NDF (Communist Party of the Philippines – New People’s Army – National Democratic Front). According to his stooges in Malacañang, the said amnesty program is purportedly meant to “attain lasting peace through comprehensive peace initiatives.” Marcos Jr’s amnesty program however smacks of bad faith. Instead of creating an environment conducive for peace, it reeks of deception intended to force the revolutionary movement to surrender.

Last 26 October, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling for an “immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce” between the US-backed Israeli forces and the Palestinian armed resistance. The outcome of the said resolution was remarkable for demonstrating how even US imperialism’s closest allies such as France and Spain refused to vote against the motion initiated by Jordan. The 193 members of the UN adopted the said resolution with a vote of 120-14 with 45 abstentions showing how badly isolated the US and Israel have become amid the surge of support for the freedom of Palestine.

The recent Hamas-led armed resistance against the fascist occupying forces of Israel has largely been portrayed by the US and its allies as an ‘unprovoked attack against Israeli civilians’ – a portrayal that clearly benefits the US imperialist design of waging a genocidal war against Palestine and regaining strategic control of resources in the Middle East.

More than five decades since the declaration of martial law, the Filipino people once again find themselves in a lurid moment of déjà vu. From enforced disappearances, fake surrenders, political killings to widespread corruption amid economic and social crises – history seems to repeat itself.
