– Rally laban sa Martial law, kasado na kasabay ng Independence day
The late President Marcos commemorated the Philippines’ Independence Day with presidential speeches. Usual ceremonies were done on this public holiday. Such events were usually held in Manila. The ceremonial flag-raising ceremony and a parade were part of the tradition. Philippine flags were also displayed during official ceremonies in historic places in the country.
Lifting of Martial Law
In 1980, Marcos lifted martial law and delivered an Independence Day speech at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila. He and te first lady hoisted the Philippine flag at Rizal Park. Other Philippine flags were raised at the Aguinaldo Shrine in Cavite, Fort Bonifacio, and at the Bonifacio Monument in Quezon City.
The current President and former President Marcos have one common goal when they declared Martial Law. This is to save the country from the rebellion which has great influence from international factors such as communism during the time of Marcos and terrorism at the present time. Meanwhile, Bongbong Marcos is also a great speaker but it is evident in his speeches how he believes in the Filipino people. His special message on this auspicious day is to not forget the heroes who gave their lives so we may have freedom. Under his leadership, patriotism can go more intense that it is now.
