Stand up to China bullying! Bam Aquino tells govt to get rid of ‘defeatist mentality’
Senator Bam Aquino has called on the government to drop its defeatist mindset and defend its people from the latest bullying of China.
Aquino, in a Facebook post, warned that if continued, such defeatist mentality would only lead to even more abuses.
“China continues to harass our fishermen, militarize our seas and threaten our sovereignty,” the senator said.
“If Malacañang will not side with the Filipino people on this issue, then the Senate can take the lead in defending our country. A strong and independent Senate can and should investigate all our dealings with China, especially when the rights and livelihood of our countrymen are at risk,” he said.
