Statement of Sen. Francis Pangilinan on 30th year of June Fourth Movement in China | Filipinos stand in solidarity with freedom-loving Chinese: Sen. Kiko

We stand in solidarity with all the freedom-loving peoples of China and the world as we commemorate the 30th year of the June Fourth Movement.

The massacre at the Tiananmen Square is a blatant reminder that people everywhere have the instinct for truth, justice, and freedom, and will fight against tyranny, repression, and impunity.

The struggle continues as basic human rights and freedoms are still obscured by state forces.

May the image of that young man who stood alone before a column of advancing tanks be forever be etched in our minds -- an image of defiance, of determination, of courage to claim our inherent basic human rights and freedoms.
