#IndependenceDay2021 Statement

Fight for freedom, fight for democracy!

Using the voice of resistance and actions for freedom, the Filipino people celebrated their first Independence Day in 1898 as we broke free from the Spanish Colonization. In 1946, our Filipino ancestors, yet again, did it with valor and determination against the American forces. May this serve as a reminder that the voice and mobilization of the people go a long way in fighting for sovereignty. Our Filipino ancestors and heroes did their part; it is now time to do ours.

As we celebrate Philippine Independence Day, may we be reminded of the fight that we are facing in the West Philippine Sea. We must not turn a blind eye to the continuous use of China of our natural resources for their benefit. With this, let us continue to call and urge the Duterte administration to cut attachments and put the Filipino people and our territory first. Together, let us fight for freedom and democracy!
