To all the revolutionary forces and the Filipino people: I would like to extend my most ardent greetings on the occasion of the coming New Year. We approach 2011 in the face of intensifying crisis, poverty and suffering. As we have witnessed these past few months under the new Aquino government, we cannot expect any changes that would bring any good or relief to the toiling masses and the people.
With the New Year, let us renew our resolve to achieve revolutionary change. Revolution is the only light that bursts through the cloudy sky and gives hope to the people. Let us achieve many more of the brilliant revolutionary victories we have attained in the past years. In 2011, let us achieve new and bigger victories in all fields of struggle. Despite the hardship and pain, let us devote all our strength and abilities to the advancement and victory of the revolution.
More firmness, courage and perseverance in the year 2011!
