The Communist insurgency in the Philippines refers to conflict between the government of the Philippines and the Communist Party of the Philippines and their New People's Army (NPA).

The insurgency had its peak in the 1980s and seems to have declined since then. The NPA has never received much if any support from outside the Philippines and has always relied solely on support from the local population. In 2010, a government crackdown further weakened the rebels significantly.

The Uppsala Conflict Data Program, a university-based data collection program considered to be "one of the most accurate and well-used data-sources on global armed conflicts,"[5] reported that between 6,970 and 9,366 people were killed in fighting between the Government of the Philippines and the CPP (Communist Party of the Philippines) between 1989 and 2012.[6]

Beginning in 2013 there was an uptake on rebel activities as communist insurgents stepped up attacks in Mindanao and southern Luzon.[7][8] March 14, 2014 saw the high profile capture of top communist leaders Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Tiamzon in Cebu.[9]
