PIA Press Release

Tabuk dad urges sustained unity and universal responsibility to achieve real independence

Tabuk, Kalinga (20 June) -- "How we value our independence can be seen from our words and actions."

Tabuk City Mayor Camilo Lammawin Jr. underscored this in his message as the country celebrated its 111th Independence Day last June 12. "This year's theme 'Kagitingan, kagalingan at kasipagan tungo sa tunay na kalayaan' reflects fitting courses of actions, which will lead us to our real independence," he said.

In his discourse, he said that "we need kagitingan to face new and difficult challenges to uplift the plight of our brothers especially those in the marginalized sectors from the bondage of criminality, disorder and poverty."

He said that in Kalinga we do not need "misplaced kagitingan" instead people should endeavor for "sustained unity", "so that the choices flowing from our independence are exercisable without reservation from discrimination and harm."

"In the exercise of our kagalingan, there should be clear goals in pursuing sustainable development and reforms," he stressed adding that these reforms should deliver the benefits to the people.

"Spend our enormous energies to constructive and sustainable activities by increasing our kasipagan to transform every opportunity, in order to develop and bring a strong and stable economy," he urged.

True independence he expressed could not be attained "without a sense of universal responsibility,". He pointed out that "our kagitingan, kagalingan at kasipagan must be utilized as drivers of change and impelling aspects of economic activities."

With the participation of government officials, employees, schools and line agencies, the celebration of the 11th Independence Day in Kalinga was highlighted with the laying of wreath at the statue of Dr. Jose Rizal at the Tabuk City Park following a civic parade. A short program was later held at the People's Gym to commemorate Filipino heroes who sacrificed their lives for the country's independence. (ggd/PIA-Kalinga) [top]
