The weekly roundup – Freedom

It's nice to be free.

The Philippines celebrated Independence Day last June 12, with President Aquino kicking off the ceremonies at the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite, where freedom was first declared 113 years ago. President Aquino underlined the key reforms that his administration has instituted in the past year, such as revised GOCC policies, open sky policies, and the synchronization of the ARMM elections with the May 2013 elections. These, according to the president, would give Filipinos a taste of “true freedom”.

For President Aquino, true freedom is freedom from hunger, ignorance, poverty, and unemployment. He promised that his administration would continue to fight all these and produce results for the Filipino people.
