MNLF CHAIRMAN'S GREETINGS ON 60TH ANNIVERSARY
OF THE ALGERIAN REVOLUTION

 

On my personal capacity as Central Committee Chairman of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and currently Acting President of the United Federated States of Bangsamoro Republik (BFSBR), we wish to express our deep gratitude to Algerian Brother Mohammed Bokreta whom we met in Tehran, Islamic Republic of Iran, sometime in June, 1982 for kindly calling our attention to the historical 60th Anniversary Celebration of the glorious Algerian Revolution of November 1, 1954.

 The beginning of the militant and progressive Algerian Revolution on the First of November 1954 under the Front de Liberation Nationale (FLN) or National Liberation Front (Algeria) spearheaded by Brother Ahmed Ben Bella shook the foundations of the French Fourth Republic that led to its collapse in 1961. 

After the FLN freedom fighters courageously engaged in strategic guerilla warfare the colonial French occupation soldiers from 1954 up to 1962, the heroic Algerian people gained their freedom and independence in 1962. The sovereign Algerian Republic proclaimed Abdelaziz Bouteflika the first President.

 In remembering the milestone event of the foundation of FLN in November 1, 1954 that led to its victory against French colonizers  in 1962, the Moro National Liberation (MNLF) was established fourteen (14) years after on March 18, 1968. The MNLF pioneer leadership were greatly inspired by the success of the Algerian National Liberation Front that the MNLF identified itself with FLN. The MNLF cadre officers even formed the military arm Bangsamoro Army (BMA) patterned after the FLN guerilla units to wage the MNLF-launched Bansgamoro freedom struggle starting in 1968 against Philippine colonialism.

 Today, November 1, 2014, on behalf of the MNLF freedom fighters and the Bangsamoro people of Mindanao, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Palawan and North Borneo, the MNLF and BFSBR leadership wish to extend their sincerest greetings and felicitations to the valiant Algerian people on their historic commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the foundation of the Algerian Revolution in November 1, 1954 leading to the victorious celebration of its independence.

 Indeed, the glorious FLN-led Algerian Revolution of November 1, 1954 shall live in the hearts and minds of the MNLF freedom fighters and Bangsamoro people.
