For the 150th birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio, known as the “Father of Philippine Revolution,” Malacanang will launch an online commemoration of his life and heroism.
In a press briefing, Palace deputy spokesman Abigail Valte said the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office will launch an interactive page with comprehensive essays and videos on Bonifacio, on the Presidential Museum and Library website.
The Palace will also mark the 80th anniversary of the unveiling of one of the country’s most enduring landmarks, the Bonifacio Monument, designed and wrought by National Artist for Sculpture Guillermo Tolentino.
“In culmination of its year-long tribute to Andres Bonifacio, the Presidential Museum and Library [www.malacanang.gov.ph] launches tomorrow its online commemoration, featuring a comprehensive essay, videos, and rare glimpses of Tolentino’s masterpiece,” Valte said
The interactive page will “trace the history of the Bonifacio Monument and the legacy it has left—and, in effect, the role Andres Bonifacio has played in securing Philippine independence and in shaping our national narrative,” Valte said.
Preparations for the celebration of Bonifacio’s birth anniversary began in earnest last year when President Benigno Aquino 3rd directed the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) to spearhead activities and programs for the celebration.
