Mayor Gordon on Bonifacio
“Andres Bonifacio was a great Filipino and hero. He was the father of the Philippine Revolution as the leader of KKK or Kataastaasang Kagalanggalang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan, the revolutionary group who braved and fought the Spaniards for our independence,” said Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. in connection with the observance of Bonifacio’s birthday on November 30.
“His heroism will always be an inspiration to Filipinos. Despite of his meager origins, Bonifacio organized a group that aimed for the common good. For justice, equal rights and for freedom, comforts that the then Filipinos were deprived of and we now enjoy,” said Mayor Gordon.
November 30 or “Bonifacio Day” is a Philippine Legal Holiday that commemorates the birthday of Bonifacio who was born on November 30, 1863.
