On so-called local peace engagements: Like a cadaver the AFP keeps on resuscitating
July 17, 2022 | National Democratic Front of the Philippines | NDF-Southern Mindanao | Rubi del Mundo | Spokesperson |

There is not, nor has there ever been, a single localized peace engagement between any local reactionary government unit, much less any AFP unit, and any organization or unit of the revolutionary movement in Southern Mindanao. From the get-go when the previous US-Duterte regime dangled the idea of “localized peace talks,” the revolutionary movement in […]

Mount strong and wide resistance against neoliberal open pit and large-scale mining in Davao Oriental
July 12, 2022 | National Democratic Front of the Philippines | NDF-Southern Mindanao | Rubi del Mundo | Spokesperson |

Amid the series of natural and man-made disasters that swamped Davao Oriental since late last year, it is contemptuous that the local ruling class continues trying to deodorize the ill-effects of the on-going open pit and large-scale mining to the environment and the overall welfare of the masses in the province. Farmers and Lumad in […]

July 09, 2022 | National Democratic Front of the Philippines | NDF-Southern Mindanao | Rubi del Mundo | Spokesperson |

The combined 105-hectare lands that the local government of Davao City is salivating over to develop into economic zones must instead be distributed to landless peasant and Lumad families in Davao City freely and immediately.

US-Duterte regime’s legacy to the environment: Fall of Haribon, rise of Black Hawks
April 25, 2022 | National Democratic Front of the Philippines | NDF-Southern Mindanao | Rubi del Mundo | Spokesperson |

As the US-Duterte regime draws to a close, one definite legacy it will leave behind is pushing the Philippine eagle to the brink of extinction, choosing instead to allow black hawk helicopters and other environmentally-destructive military air assets to roam and bomb the forests of Southern Mindanao for the last six years.As the US-Duterte regime […]

Davao City’s proposed ‘anti-discrimination legislation against former rebels’ is mere damage control of AFP’s fake surrender racket
April 16, 2022 | National Democratic Front of the Philippines | NDF-Southern Mindanao | Rubi del Mundo | Spokesperson |

The proposed amendment to Davao City’s anti-discrimination ordinance to include a provision supposedly protecting ‘former rebels’ is nothing but damage control to the adversely affected lives and livelihood of thousands of Lumad and peasants who were forced by the Armed Forces of the Philippines to “surrender” as New People’s Army fighters or sympathizers. It is […]

March 07, 2022 | National Democratic Front of the Philippines | NDF-Southern Mindanao | Rubi del Mundo | Spokesperson |

The newly railroaded law by the US-Duterte regime granting full foreign ownership over Philippine enterprises is an outright affront to our national sovereignty and bodes further economic disaster to every single Filipino. It must be rejected strongly and repealed forthwith. Republic Act 11647 will only cement the country not as a self-reliant and resilient economy […]
