Politikos are celebrating the 120th anniversary of Philippine Independence with powerful messages for the nation.

From President Duterte, Vice President Leni Robredo to lawmakers, the politikos have paid tribute to the heroes who risked their lives for the country’s independence and urged Filipinos to protect and defend such freedom.

“In the face of grave threats to our sovereignty, our freedoms and our independence as a nation, it is being on the wrong side of history to say ‘wala tayong magagawa’. Ipaglaban ang kasarinlan at kalayaan ng ating Republika! Mabuhay ang Team Pilipinas,” Senator Kiko Pangilinan wrote on Facebook.

Senator Richard Gordon wrote: “Today we celebrate the 120th Independence Day and for the past 120 years, we are inching towards freedom. But what is real freedom? It’s for people to have a CHOICE. Independence is not just a word for commemoration but a culture of self-help, self-reliance, & cooperation.”

“Independence Day is celebrating what those who came before us fought, died and lived for: a safe strong and truly free Filipino Nation, when it was just a hope and dream more than a reality, as it still is now,” Senator Gringo Honasan said.
