TKP-ML International Bureau: Communist respect to Ka Oris, the senior commander and spokesperson of the New People's Army!

Communist homage to Ka Oris, the new People's Army senior commander and spokesman!

We will keep his memory alive in our struggle!

We respectfully commemorate Comrade Oris, who was murdered in a treacherous ambush by the Philippine army, on behalf of our party, the Communist Party of Turkey-Marxist-Leninist. The assassination of Comrade Ka Oris and Ko Pika, who devoted his life to the Philippine revolution, added to the Duterte regime's crimes against the people and revolutionaries.

We are very proud to be the comrade of Ka Oris, who made great efforts and played an important role in the growth of the New People's Army, which he joined as a young revolutionary in the early 1970s. This venerable communist, who won the great love and respect of the masses of Filipino peasants and workers, will always be remembered with respect by his comrades in Turkey.

Prisons, the most unfavorable conditions for communists, are turning into a battleground against fascism. Ka Oris was imprisoned and spent 1987 years in prison after peace talks with the Corazón Aquino government collapsed in 5. Apart from this 5-year "interruption", the Communist Party of the Philippines has been extremely successful in the service of the New People's Army and the Philippine people.

Ka Oris and our comrades like him so terrified the Philippine state that the Eastern Mindanao Command of the Philippine Army, led by General Greg Almerol, awarded medals to the 4th ID commanders for their campaign against the People's War after Ka Oris was killed. The fascist state and army of the Philippines are right to be afraid. The medals they wear around their necks cannot hide their fear. Because they know that the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People's Army are doing their best to turn their fears into reality.

Companions like Ka Oris leave a huge void when they become immortal. However, "Revolutionaries die, but revolutions do not stop, they continue!” As said in the statement of FKP-MK “By taking her life, the fascists only managed to immortalize Ka Oris.” The Filipino communists and the New People's Army will fill the space left behind by Ka Oris and achieve new successes in the Protracted People's War.

In conclusion, we would like to end with the words of Comrade Ka Oris: “We all die, either by lead or disease. It's okay. For old or young, what matters most is not whether we die or live, but whether we persevere in our cause. The reason for the other side is logging, mining, expansion of plantations in the interests of foreigners and local politicians who serve as servants of multinational corporations. The difference is huge. If we die, we die. They will not die because the army is defending them. But it does not matter. The revolution continues. As you can see, we have many young people in our army. That's why it's called the New People's Army. Because most of them are young. Now they are 'new people'. We will continue, we will continue while Ka Oris is no more. Revolution does not revolve around Ka Oris. The Revolution doesn't revolve around the Tiamzons. The revolution is for the people. It is not for us old people to claim that the revolution is progressing because of us. The revolution is advancing because it has a basis for advancing. People want change.”

Long live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!

Long live the People's War!

Long live proletarian internationalism!

The martyrs of revolution and communism are immortal!
