      Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on the Commemoration of the Liberation of Marawi City

      Three years ago, the government declared the “liberation” of Marawi City after a months-long siege. We remember the innocents who lost their lives in this conflict. We honor our soldiers— those who exhibited courage and determination during those dark, dangerous months, especially those who fell, making the ultimate sacrifice for peace.

      To this day, thousands of Marawi's residents remain displaced, its buildings remain in ruins, and the city has yet to reclaim any semblance of normalcy, much less its f...

       Statement of VP Leni Robredo on the Passing of Baby River Nasino

      Last Friday, Oct. 9, we learned of the passing of Baby River, the three-month-old child of detained community organizer Reina Mae Nasino.

      Baby River was separated from her mother just one month after birth, with the court denying multiple pleas for Reina Mae to be with her baby who was then in critical condition.

      With Baby River’s passing, we support the calls for the temporary release of Reina Mae so that she can be with her family and loved ones during this difficult time. This is the least we could do for a mother who lost he...
