Solidarity Statement on Philippine Sovereignty

We, the sovereign Filipino people, assert our claim to the West Philippine Sea.

We demand that China be held accountable for their attacks on our territory, our natural resources, and our fellow Filipinos.

We condemn the passivity of our government officials and their willingness to give up the sovereignty and dignity of the Filipino people.

We stand strong and defend our borders, our values, and our nation.

We unite, hands to our hearts, and pledge, "Sa manlulupig, di kami pasisiil."

#AtinAngPinas #DefendWestPhilippineSea

Nitong nakaraang linggo, binangga at inabandona ng Chinese vessel ang bankang F/B Gem-Vir 1 ng ating mga kababayang mangingisda sa West Philippine Sea. Hindi lamang ito patuloy na panghihimasok ng Tsina sa ating mga teritoryo kundi pang-aapi na rin sa ating kababayan, at mismong paglalapastangan ng ating bansa. Sa gitna ng pagsasawalang bahala ng ating mismong gobyerno, ipahayag natin ang ating pagkakaisa bilang sambayanang Pilipino sa laban para sa ating kalayaan at pambansang soberanya.

    In <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_philosophy" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_philosophy" title=“Political philosophy”>political philosophy, the right of revolution (or right of rebellion) is the <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right" class=“mw-redirect” title="Right">right or <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duty" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duty" title="Duty">duty of the people of a nation to <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolution" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolution" title="Revolution">overthrow a government that acts against their common interests and/or threatens the safety of the people without cause. Stated throughout history in one form or another, the belief in this right has been used to justify various revolutions, including the <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Revolution" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Revolution" title=“American Revolution”>American Revolution, <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Revolution" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Revolution" title=“French Revolution”>French Revolution, the <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Revolution" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Revolution" title=“Russian Revolution”>Russian Revolution, and the <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_Revolution" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_Revolution" title=“Iranian Revolution”>Iranian Revolution.


    To justify their overthrowing of the earlier <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shang_Dynasty" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shang_Dynasty" class=“mw-redirect” title=“Shang Dynasty”>Shang Dynasty, the kings of the <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhou_Dynasty" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhou_Dynasty" class=“mw-redirect” title=“Zhou Dynasty”>Zhou Dynasty (1122–256 BC) of <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China" title="China">China promulgated the concept known as the <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandate_of_Heaven" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandate_of_Heaven" title=“Mandate of Heaven”>Mandate of Heaven, that <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tian" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tian" title="Tian">Heaven would bless the authority of a just ruler, but would be displeased and withdraw its mandate from a despotic ruler.<a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_of_revolution#cite_note-1" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_of_revolution#cite_note-1">1

    The Mandate of Heaven would then transfer to those who would rule best. Chinese historians interpreted a successful revolt as evidence that the Mandate of Heaven had passed on. Throughout Chinese history, rebels who opposed the ruling dynasty made the claim that the Mandate of Heaven had passed, giving them the right to revolt. Ruling dynasties were often uncomfortable with this, and the writings of the Confucian philosopher <a href=“”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mencius" rel="nofollow">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mencius" title="Mencius">Mencius (372–289 BC) were often suppressed for declaring that the people have the right to overthrow a ruler that did not provide for their needs.

    I am ashamed of the government’s pronouncements regarding this incident. A government that does not protect and defend its people does not deserve its authority.
