    Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on the Commemoration of the Liberation of Marawi City

    Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on the Commemoration of the Liberation of Marawi City

    Three years ago, the government declared the “liberation” of Marawi City after a months-long siege. We remember the innocents who lost their lives in this conflict. We honor our soldiers— those who exhibited courage and determination during those dark, dangerous months, especially those who fell, making the ultimate sacrifice for peace.

    To this day, thousands of Marawi's residents remain displaced, its buildings remain in ruins, and the city has yet to reclaim any semblance of normalcy, much less its former glory as a cultural and economic hub.

    The siege may have been lifted, but the Marawi of today reminds us: violent extremism remains among the biggest threats to society. And to truly address it, frustrations must be met with compassion. Empowerment must become the foremost imperative. Equitable and inclusive progress must be achieved for the people of Marawi.

    Liberation entails much more than silencing the gunfire.  Today we remember the Marawi we lost, even as we renew the call for a more urgent approach to the rehabilitation process, and recommit to the rebuilding of a more peaceful and prosperous city. Insha Allah, makakabangon tayong muli.
