The Filipino people and their revolutionary forces reject and oppose the indoctrination and grand deception campaign of the US-Marcos fascist regime. This campaign is contained in Marcos’ recent order to recite a pledge and sing a hymn dedicated to his false conception of a “Bagong Pilipinas.”

The “Bagong Pilipinas” indoctrination campaign is no different from his father dictator’s “Bagong Lipunan” that sought to cover-up the abuses of martial law and prettify Marcos’ tyrannical rule.

Marcos Jr’s concept of a “Bagong Pilipinas” is a slew of empty and fraudulent phrases. It is a reflection of his false “landslide” victory, and will be used to cover-up the fraud and deception of upcoming elections to reinforce the Marcos dynastic rule.

Marcos’ mind manipulation campaign aims to numb the consciousness of the people by obscuring the old decrepit system and the root problems of foreign domination, fascist repression and feudal oppression.

Marcos Jr’s “Bagong Pilipinas” deceives the Filipino people with illusions of a “new” future. There is, in fact, nothing fundamentally “new” in the oppressive and exploitative semi-colonial and semi-feudal system in the Philippines and the old corrupt rule of big bourgeois compradors and big landlords. They continue to revel in wealth, and reign using the instruments of state terror.

Nothing is new except the greater sufferings of the Filipino people. They wallow in a deeper quagmire of poverty and hunger. They suffer from even lower wages, more widespread landlessness, unemployment, economic dispossession, even higher prices, more burdensome taxes, and deteriorating public services.

The gap between the ruling classes and the exploited and oppressed classes are wider than ever before. Thus, the Filipino people are determined to continue the struggle to change the course of the country’s history, attain national freedom, transform the socioeconomic system, and establish a genuine democratic government. The Filipino people reject Marcos’ “Bagong Pilipinas” and reaffirm their commitment to struggle for national democracy.
