Juanito “Ka Juaning” Rivera, cofounder of the communist NPA, on Sunday died of a mild stroke and other ailments.

For 23 years, Rivera spent his life underground being a member of the politburo of the CPP and its executive committee and as a guerrilla.Released from prison in 1991, Rivera returned home and retired from the movement. He became a consultant of then Tarlac Gov. Jose Yap in the peace talks between the government and the communist-led National Democratic Front, as well as in agricultural programs of the Tarlac provincial government.

“I have no regrets of the long years spent with the underground as we gained something for the masses,” Rivera said in a 2002 interview with the Inquirer. He was then referring to the breakup of the hacienda and “kasama” system not only in Central Luzon but in other parts of the country. According to him, he bore no illusion that the mission he set out to achieve when he joined the underground movement in 1968 would bear fruit in his lifetime.
