Paninindigan returns


In this era of short attention spans, fake news, disinformation, red tagging and terrorist labeling, it is crucial for the national democratic movement to be able to articulate its clear stand on the burning issues of the day and its alternative program for a truly sovereign, independent and democratic Philippines.

It is for this reason that Bagong Alyansang Makabayan is reviving its official publication, Paninindigan.

To be published quarterly in print and online (via, Paninindigan aims to come up with timely, in-depth articles that explain current political, economic, social and cultural developments from a patriotic and progressive standpoint.

It seeks to amplify and expound on the mass campaigns and struggles of the various people’s organizations that make up the alliance, including the national and social movements that encompass or influence them, whether here or abroad.

Paninindigan hopes to be a vehicle for lively discussion and debate. It is open for letters and contributions. While the print edition will have limited cost and space considerations, the online version will be much more flexible in accommodating our readers’ views.

For this issue, we are focusing on the Marcos 2.0 regime’s own version of Charter change, from its history, current development, and context within the global economic crisis. We also have a variety of articles on the widening rift between the Marcos and Duterte dynasties, a review of last year’s mass campaigns and struggles, a rebuttal of the oft-repeated lie that the Left was absent at EDSA in 1986, and an explanation of why wage increases need not be inflationary.
