Group slams defacing of Bonifacio mural in QC
A YOUTH group expresses its disgust after a Bonifacio mural in an overpass near Philcoa in Quezon City was defaced by an alleged graffiti artist group possibly Thursday night.
The said mural painted by a group called Ang Gerilya showed Andres Bonifacio with his comrades bearing a flag of Katipunan.
According to Alyansa ng Kabataang Lumalaban para sa Sambayanan (AKLAS) a youth alliance of fraternities, tribes and gangstahs in Metro Manila, “The lack of recognition to the heroism of Bonifacio and the plight of the Filipino masses to be free from the Spanish colonizers is very saddening.”
“There are very few chances that the public could stare at such a nationalist mural outside of art galleries and museums, and then we just lost it instantly,” said Rodel Adiao, AKLAS spokesperson.
“Nowadays that millions of Filipinos are buried deep into the quagmire of poverty, as the country remains as a neo-colony of the United States, there is an urgent need to recognize and propagate the revolutionary deeds of Bonifacio,” added Adiao.
The country will be celebrating Bonifacio’s 149th birthday on November 30 which is also a regular holiday.
