TORRIJOS, Marinduque – Nakikiisa ang pangulo ng Republika ng Pilipinas, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte sa pagdiriwang ng mga Marinduqueno at ng sambayanang Pilipino sa ika-118 Taong Anibersaryo ng Labanan sa Pulang Lupa.
Ayon sa kanyang mensahe, “I am one with the Filipino people in commemorating the 118th Anniversary of the Battle of Pulang Lupa.
The Battle of Pulang Lupa was a momentous event that marked our forefathers’ dramatic victory against foreign invaders. Invigorated by their love for liberty and country, the Marinduquenos inflicted one of America’s worst defeats during the Philippine-American War. Their triumph was a testament to the remarkable valor of the Filipino people and the great potential of our young nation.
Indeed the acts of courage, heroism and selfless sacrifice during that day deserve to be remembered and emulated. May their deeds inspire us as we pursue our endeavors and fight our everyday battles. Let their passionate aspirations for a truly free and sovereign Philippines serve as our guide as we embark on the work of ensuring lasting peace and prosperity for the present and future generations.
May we have a meaningful celebration.”
