The Communist Party of the Philippines extends its warmest greetings to Comrade Kim Jong Il, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the National Defense Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and respected leader of the Korean people on his birthday on 16 February.

Comrade Kim Jong Il has continued and developed the Juche idea introduced by Comrade Kim Il Sung as the guiding principle in building a strong and progressive socialist country.

Under Comrade Kim Jong Il's leadership, the Workers' Party of Korea has built a powerful Korean People's Army that is confident and capable of defending the motherland from external threats. Under his leadership the Workers' Party of Korea, the Korean People's Army and the Korean people have stood as one in asserting national sovereignty in the face of numerous attempts at bullying by the imperialist powers led by the United States.

Comrade Kim Jong Il has welded the unity of the people in overcoming many difficulties brought about by natural calamities and economic blockades imposed by the imperialists who wish to destroy Korea's socialist revolution and construction.

We support the Korean people's profound aspiration for the independent reunification of Korea, for peace and progress. Under Comrade Kim Jong Il's wise leadership, we hope that the Korean people will realize this deep national desire in the near future.

We wish Comrade Kim Jong Il, the Workers' Party of Korea and the Korean people more victories in the future in your struggle to build a society free from exploitation, a nation with dignity and a progressive and prosperous socialist country.

The Communist Party of the Philippines and the revolutionary Filipino people are ever committed to pursue our common cause of building a better world for mankind free from the exploitative and oppressive imperialist system, a world free from the dangers of war, a world of solidarity, friendship and cooperation among peoples.

LONG LIVE COMRADE KIM JONG IL!
LONG LIVE THE UNITY OF THE PARTY, ARMY AND PEOPLE!
SUPPORT THE INDEPENDENT REUNIFICATION OF KOREA!
LONG LIVE SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM!
LONG LIVE MARXISM-LENINISM!
LONG LIVE PROLETARIAN INTERNATIONALISM!

On behalf of the 17 revolutionary allied organizations of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and the Filipino people, the NDFP extends its warmest comradely greetings to Comrade Kim Jong Il, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and Chairman of the National Defense Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on the occasion of his birth anniversary on 16th February.

Born amid the flames of the struggle against the Japanese war of aggression and occupation, Comrade Kim Jong Il grew in an environment of intense struggle against imperialism and during the great undertaking of constructing socialism in his beloved Korea. Armed with the correct ideological and political principles, he has helped develop and strengthen the Workers' Party of Korea and the Korean People's Army into a force that is ever-ready and capable to defeat any enemy that would attack and invade Korea and seek to reverse the victories of the Korean people.

Comrade Kim Jong Il's trust in the Korean people has forged unity among the Party, the People's Army and the Korean people. This unity continues to be an invincible force in facing the imperialist enemy and overcoming the effects of natural disasters.

Amidst the onslaught of political, economic and military attacks and threats of US imperialism, the Korean people, under the leadership of Comrade Kim Jong Il, have time and again defended Korea's independence and national sovereignty. Not only have they determinedly countered these attacks and threats, they have defended the gains that the people and the Party won in their struggle against imperialism and reaction.

The struggle of the Korean people, like the struggle of the Filipino people, against imperialism is part of an ever-growing and intensifying international fight against imperialism and reaction. With every victory of the people, the enemy is weakened and international solidarity is forged and strengthened.
We join Comrade Kim Jong Il and the Korean people in their fervent aspiration for the peaceful reunification of their country under the banner of independence, peace and national unity.

Long live Comrade Kim Jong Il!
Long live the Korean people!
Long live international solidarity!

The above statement is a great disservice to the Filipino people's struggle for true freedom, real democracy and social justice. It is also a disservice to the Filipino community living here outside the Philippines.

The CPP-NDF wants to practice sadomasochism 19.Feb.2006 20:29

Crisandino

The CPP-NDF is surely no utopian socialist; they are in fact aiming for dystopia. Instead of dreaming for a better future, they are aiming for a nightmarish prospect like the Kim's dynasty. DPRK is not democratic nor is it socialist; it is what I will consider as social-feudalism - socialism in words but feudalism in deeds.

If the CPP-NDF wants to practice sadomasochism, please do it in your own bedroom and not impose it to the whole country.

Don't smear the incredible Filipina/o struggles 20.Feb.2006 10:38

Glorification of a militaristic pimp is predictable for the communists, just as is glorification of a thug like bin Laden for Islamicists, just as is glorification of Bush and Company by Christian wingnuts. This we expect.

But to identify the true grassroots, People Power victories of the Filipinas and Filipinos, as connected in any philosophical way to the brutal repression of the North Korean dictator is calumny. The people rose up with disciplined, mass nonviolence and overthrew a US-installed and maintained dictator. The North Koreans never accomplished anything remotely as progressive or peaceful and have been viciously suppressed ever since going communist.
