Documents and Publications of the
Communist Party of the Philippines

      We are posting here a collection of some of the more important documents and statements issued by the Communist Party of the Philippines, and its allied military and mass organizations, focusing especially on more recent years.

      It should be noted that the CPP itself, unlike some revolutionary parties, has over the years posted many of its materials on the Internet. However, most of its earlier public documents have not been posted, or are no longer available online, or else are very difficult to locate. The Philippine government (and/or reactionaries working with it) have also periodically blocked or sabotaged some CPP websites. However, as of December 2019 the best source for new CPP statements and materials is the Philippine Revolution Web Central, at:

      We also have a separate page for the statements and documents of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, with which the CPP is associated.

      Within each section here the most recent documents are at the top. We hope to greatly expand this archive in the future. If you know of additional documents or statements which should be posted here, or have any comments or suggestions, please contact us at:

Foreign Criticism of the CPP   [See also the section on Sison]


      Due to the repressive legislation and judicial decisions in the United States, we at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET want to make it completely clear that we do not have any connection whatsoever with the Communist Party of the Philippines, or its associated organizations, or with any other party in the Philippines or any other country for that matter. We do not aid, promote, assist, support, coordinate with, or provide any sort of services or advice to the CPP or to any other party. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both the Philippines and internationally to read the views and publications of this and all other parties and organizations. We object to the suppression of the views and ideas put forward by the CPP, whether past or present. And for this reason alone we are making copies of many documents from the CPP and its associated organizations available on this site, along with documents by its leaders, critics and other commentators.
