Senator Risa Hontiveros Wants August 21 Declared As Marcial Bonifacio Day

633B707D-9B04-4874-AE58-D6AA8FCE7639MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Fresh from her much-publicized proposal to declare August 16 as Kian Lloyd Delos Santos Day, Senator Risa Hontiveros has yet another brilliant legislative suggestion.

(Delos Santos was killed in anti-illegal drugs operation by Caloocan police a year ago.)

Hontiveros wants August 21 declared as ‘Marcial Bonifacio Day,’ to commemorate the assassination of Ninoy Aquino.

The lady Senator told The Adobo Chronicles that all our laws should accurately reflect history. “When Ninoy was killed in 1983, he held a passport bearing the name Marcial Bonifacio, so any hero’s tribute should be based on fact.”

For a change, we agree with Hontiveros.
