Warmest greetings of solidarity!
I thank all of you for attending this book launch. I thank Prof. Luis V. Teodoro, Chair of Aklat ng Bayan for welcoming you earlier through his representative Prof. Noli Queaño. I thank Ruth de Leon, Issa D. Palo, Levie Ebio, Joel Celestial and the other organizers for realizing this event.
I give special thanks to the distinguished speakers the Hon. Satur Ocampo, Dr. Dante Simbulan, Prof. Sarah Raymundo and Jaquelin Joy Eroles and to my cooperators in various projects Jonas Staal, Dr. Charles S. Veric and Ms Paloma Polo for giving their kind remarks.
I thank the editor-in-chief Julieta de Lima, executive editor Alvin Firmeza and book designer Janos Sison for having worked hard to produce this book, Foundation for Resuming the Philippine Revolution.
I reiterate my thanks to Aklat ng Bayan and International Network for Philippine Studies, for the publication of this book and the next four books, under the general title of Continuing the Philippine Revolution.
I am deeply pleased that the entire series of books is meant to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio, the leader of the old democratic revolution of 1896, and is aimed at refreshing consciousness of the new democratic revolution in the period of 1968 to 1990.
May the books serve the purpose of imparting knowledge and more importantly promoting the ideas for continuing the struggle for national and social liberation of our people who suffer intolerable exploitation and oppression in the semicolonial and semifeudal ruling system.
Isulong ang rebolusyong Pilipino!
Mabuhay ang sambayanang Pilipino!
