Thursday, January 24, 2013
MANILA -- Malacañang will publish a multimedia historical series on former President Corazon "Cory" Aquino in commemoration of her 80th birth anniversary on Friday.
"As a tribute to her unshakable determination to defend our hard-earned democracy, the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) will publish a multimedia historical series on President Corazon C. Aquino as commander-in-chief and defender of the Fifth Republic," Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said in a statement.
Lacierda invited the public to visit the Official Gazette at
www.gov.ph to see the official Presidential Management Staff narrative entitled "The Aquino Management of the Presidency: In face of crisis."
The PCDSPO will make available online through www.gov.ph the full report of the Davide Commission, which was tasked to investigate the 1989 coup attempt.
"This online observance seeks to perpetuate the greatness of the Filipino people personified by the widow, dressed in yellow, who defended and nurtured our democratic institutions that she and countless Filipinos restored and rebuilt," Lacierda said.
"A generation after our newly restored democracy faced some of the most serious and bloodiest challenges to democracy and civilian supremacy, we pause in homage to the soldiers and civilians who lost their lives in defense of constitutional government," he added.
"Let us never forget those who died so that democracy may live," he ended. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
