10 February 2010

Dear Friends,

I thank all of you for your solidarity and support by participating in this launching of the books, Crisis of Imperialism and People’s Resistance and People’s Struggle against Imperialist Plunder and Terror. These are volumes three and four, respectively, of the four-volume selection of my writings covering 1991-2009. I hope that you enjoy the showing of the DVD of the musical play “Makata’y Mandirigma, Mandirigma’y Makata”, featuring songs based on some of my poems.

I thank and congratulate Aklat ng Bayan for publishing the four volumes in the span of one year. I appreciate the fact that Aklat ng Bayan was able to surmount sudden and unforeseen obstacles, including the Ondoy floods that victimized some of its key members and that damaged at least eighty percent of its book inventories.

I am elated that Aklat ng Bayan has persevered in publishing my written contributions to the Filipino people’s struggle for national liberation and democracy as well as to the world people’s struggle against imperialist plunder and war. I commend Aklat ng Bayan for rendering an important service to the people, the progressive forces and the activists, scholars and others.

Volumes 3 and 4 reflect how the Filipino people’s struggle developed and advanced amidst the rapid deterioration of the local ruling system and the grave global economic and political crises during the period of 2001 to 2009. They are the necessary and logical sequel to the first two volumes covering the decade from 1991 to 2000, which saw the revitalization of the revolutionary forces and the resurgence of people’s struggles in the Philippines despite the fierce ideological, political, economic and military offensives unleashed by the US-led imperialist powers and the local reactionaries.
