PH Independence Day: Robredo calls for equal opportunities for all Filipinos

Robie de Guzman   •   June 12, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday called on the public to fight for equal opportunities for all Filipinos as the country celebrates the 121st Philippine Independence Day.

In her message, Robredo urged Filipinos to draw inspiration from forebearers who fought for the country’s freedom from colonizers.

“Sa paggunita natin ngayon ng ating kasarinlan, sana ay balikan natin kung paano, bilang isang lahi, ay pinili nating sundin ang sarili nating landas, magtayo ng sarili nating gobyerno at magtatag ng sariling estado,” Robredo said in her message released on Wednesday.

The Vice President underscored that in choosing freedom from foreign oppressors, Filipinos have the responsibility to establish a nation where everyone would have an opportunity to live peacefully and prosperously.

“Sa pagtutulak ng interes na ito, inako natin ang responsibilidad na gumawa ng isang lipunang malaya, makatarungan at makatao. Isang lipunan kung saan ang bawat Pilipino ay may oportunidad na mabuhay nang sagana at mapayapa,” she said.

“Hanggang sa araw na ito, nakaatang ang responsibilidad na ito sa bawat isa sa atin. Ito ang pinaglaban ng mga nauna sa atin at ito na rin ang tungkuling iniwan sa atin upang gampanan: ang masigurong nabubuhay tayo sa isang Pilipinas kung saan umaangat ang bawat isang mamamayan,” she added.

Robredo continued with: “Bilang mga lingkod bayan, nasa ating pananagutan ang pangarap na ito para sa bawat Pilipino: na lahat ay kabahagi at walang maiiwan; na lahat ay may pantay-pantay na oportunidad sa pag-unlad.”

In her message, she also gave honor to the sacrifices made by the country’s heroes.

“Kinikilala natin ang lahat ng nagsumikap at lumaban para matupad ang pangarap ng isang malayang Pilipinas, at para sa karapatan ng bawat Pilipinong panghawakan ang sarili niyang kinabulkasan,” Robredo said.

She also expressed hope that as Filipinos celebrate the country’s Independence Day, it would make them remember their love and responsibility for the Philippines and the things that could be attained through unity.

“Nawa’y pukawin ng pagdiriwang na ito ang isang malalim na pagmamahal para sa bayan, at maging paalala s abawat isa ng kung ano ang kaya nating marating sa ating pagbabayanihan,” she said.

Robredo led the 121st Independence Day rites at the Rizal Park on Wednesday, along with outgoing Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada.
