June 12: Today is the 117th anniversary of the proclamation of Philippine independence. President Benigno S. Aquino III will be leading the celebrations from Santa Barbara Plaza, Iloilo—part of the President’s ongoing thrust to commemorate the role of our regions in our nation’s liberation.

Today, the proclamation of Philippine Independence is celebrated on June 12—but before 1962, it was celebrated on July 4.

This Independence Day, Filipinos should learn to think out of the box rather than dwell on negativism, President Aquino said yesterday.
