Filipino political scientist and writer Professor Jose Maria Sison’s latest volumes of selected writings were launched last 15 May 2010 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
The books, Crisis of Imperialism and People’s Resistance (Volume 3) and People’s Struggle Against Imperialist Plunder and Terror (Volume 4) were launched in the wake of Prof. Sison’s legal victories against the false charges filed by the Dutch prosecution and the victory at the European Court of Justice which annulled his inclusion in the so-called terrorist blacklist of the European Union.
Prof. Sison is the chief political consultant of the National Democratic Front Peace Panel in peace negotiations with the Manila government, and is currently chairperson of the global anti-imperialist alliance International League of Peoples’ Struggles (ILPS).
The books Crisis of Imperialism and People’s Resistance, and People’s Struggle Against Imperialist Plunder and Terror, are part of a 4-volume series of Prof. Sison’s selected writings. The first two volumes namely, For Justice, Socialism and Peace (Volume 1) and For Democracy and Socialism Against Imperialist Globalization (Volume 2), were released in 2009.
Under the auspices of the International Committee DEFEND, Filipino political scientist and writer Professor Jose Maria Sison will launch his latest two books on Philippine and global issues at the ABC Treehouse, Voetboogstraat 11 in Amsterdam on May 15, Saturday, from 3 to 6pm.
The books, Crisis of Imperialism and People’s Resistance (Volume 3) and People’s Struggle Against Imperialist Plunder and Terror (Volume 4) are part of the four-volume series of the selected writings of Prof. Sison from 1991 to 2009.
The earlier volumes were launched year also in Amsterdam. Volume 1 is entitled For Justice, Socialism and Peace and Volume 2, For Democracy and Socialism Against Imperialist Globalization. These shall also be available for sale at the new launch.
