The cover

“Food for revolutionary thought & practice” (Tilde Acuña, 2021) 8.25” x 5.875” metallic pen on black board paper. The work re-draws a painting by Parts Bagani, guerrilla & artist, who was recently murdered by military and police operatives in South Cotabato. To complement CONTEND’s celebration of the lives & works of Lenin and Engels in this issue of PINGKIAN, this rendering adds two comrades into the frame, reading digital and physical copies of Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism & The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State, while waiting for sinaing (cooked rice).
