    • MESSAGE OF VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO NEW YEAR 2021

      MESSAGE OF VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO NEW YEAR 2021

      Isang Manigong Bagong Taon po mula sa aming pamilya at sa aming lahat sa Office of the Vice President.

      Ipagdiriwang natin ang pagpasok ng Bagong Taon, pero marahil, mas malalim ang pagdiriwang natin, mas maluwag ang paghinga natin, dahil sa pagsasara ng 2020. Napakatindi ng mga pagsubok na dala ng nagdaang taon. Tumama ang pandemya at humabol pa ang sunod-sunod na sakuna. Marami sa atin ang unang beses na sasalubong sa bagong taon na hindi kapiling ang mga pumanaw na mahal sa buhay. Maraming naapektuhan o nawalan ng kabuhayan, at mas kaunti...

    • Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on Rizal Day

      Posted in Statements on Dec 30, 2020

      Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on Rizal Day

      One hundred twenty four years ago today, Jose Rizal offered his life for the dignity of the Filipino people.

      Through his work, the example of his life, and his supreme sacrifice, Rizal thought less of himself, and more about the many Filipinos who lived under the yoke of colonialism. His enduring legacy lives on in the liberties we enjoy today.

      As we commemorate Rizal Day, may we always strive to be worthy of our freedoms, and realize that being free requires that we recognize the shared humanity in one another, and fight for the welfare and ...

      Posted in Statements on Dec 24, 2020

      MESSAGE OF VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO CHRISTMAS 2020

      Maligayang Pasko sa inyong lahat mula sa aming pamilya at sa aming lahat dito sa Tanggapan ng Pangalawang Pangulo!

      Walang katulad ang Paskong ito. Walang Christmas parties at caroling; walang malalaking salo-salo; magdiriwang tayo nang hindi katabi ang isa’t isa. Ngunit sa kabila ng napakaraming pagbabago sa mga tradisyong nakaugalian natin, humuhugot tayo ng lakas sa mga bagay na tiyak: Makakaasa tayo sa kabutihan ng ating kapwa; iisa tayong pamilya na sabay-sabay humaharap at bumabangon mula sa anumang pagsubok; lahat tayo, saklaw ng wala...

      Statement of Vice President Leni Robredo on the killings of Sonya and Frank Gregorio

      Gumising marahil ang mag-inang Sonya at Frank Gregorio nang iniisip kung paano sasalubungin ang paparating na Pasko at Bagong Taon; kung ano ang ihahanda sa simpleng salo-salo. Ngunit tiyak na hindi nila naisip na ito na ang huling mga sandali nila sa mundo. At habang tayong lahat, may inaasahan pang bukas pagkatapos ng isang taong puno ng pagsubok, hindi na ito masisilayan ng mag-ina.

      There will be those who will lay all blame on the person who pulled the trigger, as if he were not part of a larger architectu...

      Statement of Vice President Leni Robredo on Human Rights Day

      Today, we celebrate International Human Rights Day on the 72nd anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is a reaffirmation of the common humanity that binds us all, and a renewal of our shared commitment to build a world where everyone is free and equal in dignity and rights.

      Human rights have always had the character of both declaration and aspiration. Upholding every person's rights and dignity does not end with token recognition, but requires work and struggle for their full realization.

      And i...
