Members and supporters of Spirit of Eureka (Australia) are immensely saddened by the passing of Joma Sison, the inspiring leader of the struggles of Filipino working people for many decades.
Joma Sison provided the people’s movement with an example of political foresight and skill, ideological clarity, courage and the ability to overcome the many threats and obstacles raised against him by reactionary forces.
In a lifetime devoted to serving the people, Joma Sison made enormous contributions to people’s anti-imperialist struggles and movements not only in the Philippines, but across the world.
We are confident that his lasting legacy will be the militant, organised and united mass movements of the Filipino people which will overcome the forces of imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism so that the Filipino people enjoy the life they rightly deserve.
His memory will live in the struggles and hopes of the people.
