Pulang Bagani Battalion leads celebration of CPP’s 48th anniversary

The New People’s Army’s Pulang Bagani Battalion staged a military parade and review to start the Communist Party of the Philippines’ 48th founding anniversary celebration in Davao City last December 26.

Often dismissed as a spent force, especially after the death of one of its legendary commanders Leoncio “Ka Parago” Pitao, the battalion welcomed tens of thousands of supporters and well-wishers in a show of force at President Rodrigo Duterte’s hometown.

The CPP said it is at its strongest in its 48-year history and is ready to continue its revolution until final victory.
