By the Communist Party of Turkey – Marxist Leninist (TKP-ML)
It is with deep sadness that we learnt that Jose Maria Sison, the founding chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines, passed away at the age of 83 after a two-week stay in a hospital in Utrech, Netherlands.
We are saddened to have lost a great revolutionary, Marxist-Leninist-Maoist leader, internationalist and close friend of our party.
Jose Maria Sison (Ka Joma) was undoubtedly one of the great revolutionaries of the past century. For this reason, he was targeted by the fascist Philippines state. He suffered imprisonment. Finally, as a political refugee, he continued to produce in exile conditions, to serve the revolution in the Philippines and the world revolution.
We express our sorrow to the Filipino proletariat and labouring people for the loss of their teacher and communist leader. We offer our deep condolences from the proletariat and people of Turkey.
Ka Joma’s immortal revolutionary spirit will live on in our international struggle!
Ka Joma is Immortal!
Long Live Proletarian Internationalism!
