Sen. Leila M. de Lima's Message on the Restoration of the Macli-ing Dulag Monument


We should all take inspiration from the collective defiance of the Butbut tribe when they restored the monuments of Macli-ing Dulag and other martyrs of the Cordillera on Araw ng Kagitingan.

The regime will repress every reminder of our right to fight back but a people with a long history of struggle against tyrants will always find ways to resist and triumph. We never forget.

As the Duterte regime continues to deny us our right to live a life with dignity, and to subdue us in our struggle for truth and justice, the sacrifices of heroes like Macli-ing Dulag will serve as a constant reminder of a continuing narrative of dissent and freedom. Ilang ulit mang sirain ang alaala ng mga bayani, patuloy na mabubuhay ang kanilang mga gunita, aral at sakripisyo para sa atin at para sa mga susunod pang salinlahi.
