TKP-ML EB: Red Greetings to the Revolutionary Hero of the Philippine People, YHO Commander Ka Menandro Villanueva

Red Greetings to the Revolutionary Hero of the Philippine People, YHO Commander Ka Menandro Villanueva

The fascist regime in the Philippines continues its massacres of the corrupt and puppet Duterte regime. Finally, we learned that the revolutionary hero of the Philippine people, YHO Commander Ka Menandro Villanueva (Ka Bok), was murdered in the Mabini town of Davao de Oro.

Ka Menandro and Ka Sandra Reyes (Ka Kaye) were captured alive by enemy armed forces in the same incident on 24-25 December 2021 in Mabini, Davao del Sur. The fascist state of the Philippines claimed on January 6 that Ka Menandro was killed in combat on January 5, 2022. He was obviously tortured for at least ten days before he was killed. The enemy prevented the family from demanding the body immediately, and also prevented human rights defenders from seeing the body.

70 years old, also known as Ka Jude and Ka Gipo Ka Menandro; He was a revolutionary leader who served the people of the Philippines for 50 years. He devoted his whole life to the cause of the proletariat and the oppressed and exploited masses. Ka Menandro, along with other cadres and commanders, led the YHO and the Communist Party of the Philippines throughout Mindanao. He also held important positions as the Supreme Commander of YHO and a member of the Central Committee of the CPI.

He now stands as a red flag in the pantheon of the immortals of the Philippine people. The fascists managed to immortalize him by murdering him! But as we said recently in the murder of Ka Oris and Ko Pika “Revolutionaries die, but revolutions do not stop, they continue!"


Our Party TKP-ML, at its Conference in 1978, decided to commemorate the last week of January as the "Party and Revolution Martyrs' Memorial Week". During this week, we commemorate those who fell to the ground not only for our country, but also for the struggle of the international proletariat. In this sense Ka Menandro and Ka Sandra Reyes, we commemorate our comrades who were martyred in the Philippines and salute their struggle.

We wish success to FKP and YHO once again in their struggle. The people and youth of the Philippines will take the place of those who fell in the people's war. What the fascist Duterte regime forgot; “blood does not suffocate the revolution, it nourishesis ”.

Ka Menandro's lifelong revolutionary service and heroism will forever inspire all red warriors and the Filipino people to further the people's war.

Long live Ka Menandro Villanueva and Ka Sandra Reyes!

Long live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!

Long live Proletarian Internationalism!

The Martyrs of the Revolution and Communism are Immortal!
