A Call to All Filipino Patriots

The Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, People’s Patriotic Movement, and Bayan Muna invite us to “Panata ng Bayan,” an indoor Rally & Cultural Program with Vice President Teofisto Guingona, former Senator Wigberto TaƱada, and other patriotic leaders on July 4, 2003, 10:00 am-12:00 noon, at Colegio de San Juan de Letran Gym in Intramuros, Manila.

Ang bayang itong pugad ng luha’t dalita, pinagpupugaran din talaga ng makakapal ang mukha!
