About This Book

Written as a family history this book furnishes us with powerful testimonies on the era of Ferdinand Marcos and Jose Maria Sison, along with narratives on the vicissitudes of the revolutionary movement. Each Quimpo sibling bears witness to the events they and others did so much to shape. From aborted attempts to smuggle weapons for the NPA to heady times organising "spontaneous uprisings" and general strikes in Mindanao, from the cruel discovery of the cause of one brother's death at he hands of a kasama to the near hallucinatory tales of imprisonment and torture at the hands of the military, these stories remind of the personal costs and the daily heroism of those who joined the movement.
