BAYAN MUNA: RETURN OF BALANGGIGA BELLS SHOULD BE ACCOMPANIED BY US APOLOGY
Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate today said that along with the return of the Balanggiga bells, the “US should also issue an official and public apology for the atrocities they committed in Samar during the Philippine-American War and compensate the descendants of the victims.”
“The US should also return other war booties they took from other areas in our country and pay reparations for the damages they have done on our people, ” said the progressive solon.”
These bells are emblematic of the continuing injustice committed against our country and people in the name of the hegemonic and imperialist greed of America,” said the Davao-based solon.
“Bayan Muna has filed numerous pieces of legislation and resolutions since the 12th Congress for the return of the Balanggiga bells and it is high time that the US return this to our country,” ended Rep.Zarate.###
