Defend the democratic rights of Jose Maria Sison!Stop the persecution of progressive and revolutionaries under the pretext of “antiterrorism”!

Jose Maria Sison, Founding Chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines and currently Chief Political Consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, has been put on the list of “terrorists” by the US and Dutch governments.

Since 1987, Sison has resided in the Netherlands where he is seeking asylum as a political refugee.
Invoking the “terrorist” label, the Dutch government has withdrawn all social benefits Sison is entitled to as an asylum seeker.

Jose Maria Sison has a long history as a prominent fighter for the independence and sovereignty of the Philippines and the social progress of his people and country.
By labeling him a “terrorist” the US and Dutch governments reveal their efforts to combat progressive, revolutionary and liberation movements of the peoples under the pretext of combatting “terrorism”. Jose Maria Sison is a freedom fighter, not a terrorist.

Jose Maria Sison has since 1987 asked the Dutch government to grant him political asylum. In 2002 he faces the risk of being extradicted to the US and persecuted there, risking a death sentence.

THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF MARXIST-LENINIST PARTIES AND ORGANISATIONs declares its consistent support for the defense of the democratic rights of Jose Maria Sison and joins the world wide campaign for the reinstatement of all his rights. The persecution of progressive and revolutionaries under the pretext of “antiterrorism” must be stopped.

The Conference calls on the Dutch govenment to remove his name from the terrorist list, to reinstate his full rights as an asylum seeker and to refuse any demand for his extradiction.
