• Pinoys urged to emulate Bonifacio’s courage

    1

    PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday called on Filipinos to relive the ideals of Andres Bonifacio as the country marked the revolutionary hero’s 153rd birth anniversary.

    In a statement, the President paid tribute to Bonifacio’s defiance toward Spanish colonial rule that “quelled the hunger of a people longing for change.”

    “He belongs to the league of heroes willing to lay down [their lives]and put aside [their]own interests to honor the nation and defend it from its enemies. His courage and love of country served as a guiding torch in the midst of darkness,” he added.

    The President then urged Filipinos to live up to the “patriotic, unfettered, and independent” spirit of Bonifacio.

    “Our government calls on the public to get involved in community and national issues that affect our lives. May we all find strength to tap in our collective voice so that we can know ourselves better and understand our struggles in history,” he said.

    Duterte issued the statement as various groups protested in various sites across the country the November 18 burial of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

    The Palace respects the “right to assemble and freedom of speech of all citizens,” Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Michel Kristian Ablan said in a news conference.

      Marami pa sana nagawa si Andres Bonifacio sa Bayan kung hindi maaga ang kanyang kamatayan na ginawa ni Emilio Aguinaldo. Pati rin si Antonio Luna ay pinatay din ni Emilio Aguinaldo. Napakabata pa nila noon sila ay pinatay ni Emiio Aguinaldo. Nakakalungkot ang istorya ng ating mga bayani kasi kapwa Pilipino ang pumatay sa kanila hindi ang mismong mga banyaga na kinalaban nila. Hanggang ngayon ito pa rin ang tunay na dahilan kung bakit nagkakagulo ang ating bansa- power, greed, hate and vindictiveness ang umiiral kasi meron grupong pulitikal na nakikinabang sa ganitong sitwasyon.

      Ito ang dapat tingnan ng medya, religious groups at mga taong meron malasakit sa katotohanan at tunay na pagbabago. Huwag sana silang magpagamit sa “interest” ng ilang sektor sa lipunan na “power, hate & vindictiveness” ang pinapairal para lang manatili sila sa kapangyarihan. Kaguluhan, paghihigante at kalitohan ang palaging pinapairal. They are being deceived by Satan as his agents of evildoing. As Lord Jesus said in John 10:10 “The thief’s (Satan) purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life”. With the Satan’s spirit of deception, they and their supporters wants to destroy and “kill” the present and future generations of this country by instituting a “Culture of Hate, lies & vindictiveness”.

      Pinalabas ni Aguinaldo (great lie) na isang dakilang taksil sa bayan si Andres Bonifacio kaya siya ay kanyang pinatay (Hanggang ngayon ay di pa nakikita ang kanyang bangkay). Si Ninoy Aquino ay pinatay din para paratangan si Marcos na siya ang gumawa para bumagsak ang kanyang political life. Ito ang paulit ulit (history repeat itself- hate, greed and lie, vindictiveness) na nangyayari sa ating bansa. GOD Bless the Philippines.
