ফিলিপিনের বাংসামোরো সংগ্রামের অগ্রগতি – NDF-Mindanao
The National Democratic Front (NDF)-Mindanao called on the Moro people to further consolidate their ranks and intensify their struggle for self-determination. The call was made by NDF-Mindanao spokesperson Ka Oris after the bloody clash in Mamasapano, Maguindanao on January 25.
The January 25 attack by armed troops of the Philippine National Police Special Action Force (PNP–SAF) in Barangay Tukanalipao, Mamasapano, a known Bangsamoro stronghold, was a direct affront to the right to self-determination of the Moro people.
The huge number of casualties inflicted by Moro fighters on the SAF is being exploited by a number of groups and politicians to fan the flames of anti-Moro chauvinism and cover up Aquino and the US’ responsibility in the bloody operation. The passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), a bill resulting from the peace talks between the GPH and the MILF is likewise in danger of being blocked.
Nonetheless, said Ka Oris, even if the BBL were enacted into law and implemented, growing numbers of Moro people are expected to join the armed struggle being launched by the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and the national democratic struggle embodied by the NDF, as the BBL is not designed to resolve the basic feudal and semicolonial system prevailing in the Bangsamoro areas.
Ka Oris stressed that the NDF has a commitment to the Moro people to support their struggle for self-determination. Thus, both forces can support each other against a common enemy.
The NDF-Mindanao called on the BIFF to brace itself for the definite intensification of military attacks on its ranks. It must strengthen itself and rapidly expand its area of maneuver to overcome the AFP-PNP’s encirclement campaign. The Bangsamoro areas and social terrain are fertile ground for developing expertise in guerrilla warfare and people’s war.
The NDF-Mindanao also called on the Filipino people to unite with the Moro people in their struggle for genuine self-determination and for national freedom and democracy, in order for just and lasting peace to prevail someday in Mindanao and the entire country.
