ANGELES CITY -- Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan during the city's commemoration of the 116th Independence Day at the Pamintuan Mansion on Thursday said that freedom depends on ordinary citizens themselves.

"Maraming Pilipino ang nagpapakita ng kabayanihan na hindi naitatala ng mga historyado," he said, referring to ordinary citizens.

"Nakasalalay sa mga ordinaryong mamamayan ang pakikibaka, hindi lamang sa ganap nakalayaan at pagbabago, kung hindi sa ganap na paglaya natin sakahirapan," he added.

For his part, Bases Conversion and Development Authority CEO Arnel Paciano Casanova said today's fight for freedom is against poverty, corruption and hopelessness.

"Ang kadakilaan ay hindi lamang nababatid sa pakikihamok o karahasan," Casanova said as he quoted President Benigno Aquino III about the current problems of the country.

"Laban para sa dignidad, sa dangal ng bawat Pilipino. At itong laban n ito ay laban sa katiwalian, laban sa korapsyon, at laban sa kawalan ng pag-asa," he said. (Ashley Dela Peña)
