Bagong Pilipinas Hymn lyrics

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Dahil sa ito ay kinakailangan

Tayo na magtulong-tulong

Na paularin ang mahal nating bayan

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Dahil sa ito ay kinakailangan

Tayo na magtulong-tulong

Na paularin ang mahal nating bayan

Panahon na ng pagbabago

At iayos ang mga dapat ayusin

Dapat lang maging tungkulin

Ng bawat mamamayan dito sa atin

Gawin ang pagbabago

Patungo sa pag-asenso

Magsikap ng mabuti

At nang guminhawa tayo

Ipagmalaki natin sa mundo at ipamalas

Ang Bagong Pilipino at Bagong Pilipinas

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Tangkilikin natin ang sariling atin

At tama lang na ugaliin

Kaysa sa iba sa atin ang unahin

Panahon na ng pagbabago

At manguna sa kahit anong larangan

Ang tagumpay ay karangalan

Ialay o ihandog natin sa bayan

Ilang ulit nang napatunayan ng Pilipino

Ang husay at lakas, kagandahan, at talento

Handang makipag paligsahan kahit anong oras

Ang bagong Pilipino, ang Bagong Pilipinas

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Buhay natin ay gawing maaliwalas

Marami ang magandang bukas

Ang ibubunga ng Bagong Pilipinas

PANAHON NA!



Bagong Pilipinas Pledge

Bilang Pilipino, buong pagmamalaki kong isasabuhay ang Bagong Pilipinas.

Buhay sa aking dugo ang lahing dakila, magiting at may dangal

Palaging dadalhin sa puso, isip at diwa ang aking pagmamahal sa kultura at bayang sinilangan;

Kaisa ng bawat mamamayan, iaalay ko ang aking talino at kasanayan sa pagpapaunlad ng aking Bayan;

Taglay ang galing na naaayon sa mga pandaigdigang pamantayan;

Magiging instrument ako sa pagsulong ng kagalingan, karunungan at kapayapaan.

Makikiisa at makikilahok ako sa mga adhikain ng pamamahalaan dahil ang kaunlaran at hindi lamang responsibilidad ng iilan.

Isusulong at pangagalagaan ko ang karangalan, Kalayaan at interes ng aking bayang minamahal; 

Bilang Pilipino na may pagmahahal, pakilam at malasakit; hindi makasarili kundi para sa mas nakakarami; tatahakin ko ang landas tungo sa isang Bagong Pilipinas!

Philippine Independence Day, celebrated annually on June 12, stands as a testament to the nation's enduring spirit and quest for freedom.

History

Philippine Independence Day, celebrated on June 12, marks the country's proclamation of independence from Spanish colonial rule in 1898.

This day holds profound historical significance as it symbolizes the end of over three centuries of Spanish domination and the Filipinos' enduring quest for sovereignty.



The struggle for independence began in earnest in the late 19th century with the rise of the nationalist movement led by figures like José Rizal, Andrés Bonifacio, and Emilio Aguinaldo. Their collective efforts culminated in the Philippine Revolution, which ultimately led to the declaration of independence in Kawit, Cavite.


Emilio Aguinaldo, who became the first President of the Philippines, proclaimed independence from a balcony of his ancestral home, an event that was accompanied by the first public performance of the Philippine national anthem and the raising of the Philippine flag.


July 4

Initially, Philippine Independence Day was celebrated on July 4, the same day as American Independence Day, to commemorate the granting of independence by the United States in 1946 after World War II. However, in 1962, President Diosdado Macapagal shifted the date to June 12 to honor the original 1898 declaration, reaffirming the country's sovereignty and rich historical heritage.



Modern-Day Celebrations

Today, Philippine Independence Day is celebrated with a blend of solemn remembrance and vibrant festivities, reflecting both historical pride and contemporary cultural identity.

1. Flag Raising Ceremonies:
The day typically begins with a national flag-raising ceremony, with the most significant event held at the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite. Government officials, including the President, deliver speeches emphasizing the importance of independence and national unity.

2. Parades and Cultural Shows:
Across the country, parades featuring colorful floats, traditional dances, and reenactments of historical events are common. These parades serve not only as entertainment but also as educational displays that highlight the Philippines' rich cultural diversity and history.

3. Military Displays:
In major cities, military parades and displays showcase the strength and discipline of the Philippine Armed Forces. These events underscore the nation's ongoing commitment to protect its sovereignty and the importance of a strong national defense.

4. Community Gatherings:
Local communities often come together for street parties, food festivals, and public concerts. These gatherings foster community spirit and offer a platform for showcasing local talents and cuisines.

5. Overseas Celebrations:
Filipinos living abroad also celebrate Independence Day with various activities organized by Filipino communities and embassies. These events help maintain cultural ties and national pride among the Filipino diaspora.

Baguio City is once again considering the implementation of a congestion fee within city limits to address worsening traffic conditions and environmental concerns. The proposal, announced through a Facebook post by the Baguio City Public Information Office, suggests a P250 fee for private cars entering the central business district.



This initiative, presented during a public consultation on June 5 by the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), aims to alleviate traffic congestion and reduce carbon emissions. Under the plan, public transportation vehicles such as jeepneys, along with vehicles driven by senior citizens, persons with disabilities, emergency response vehicles, and on-duty uniformed personnel, will be exempt from the fee.

The local government emphasized that the proposed congestion fee is part of a broader strategy to enhance urban mobility. "The corporation envisions a Singapore-like transport system in Baguio where the riding public can monitor road conditions in real-time using mobile applications as well as book or reserve parking spaces prior to arrival to lessen the amount of time and petroleum consumed going around looking for possible parking sites," read the Facebook post.



Additionally, the proposal includes the establishment of a smart traffic command center to monitor road conditions and swiftly address road accidents by dispatching responders as needed. This integrated approach is seen as a "holistic solution to not only traffic but improving overall mobility," according to the MPTC.



Baguio City Administrator Bonifacio Dela Peña confirmed that discussions are underway to finalize the terms and conditions of the proposed project. The congestion fee, if implemented, is expected to not only ease traffic congestion but also contribute additional revenue to the local economy.



By drawing parallels with Singapore’s advanced transport system, the MPTC and Baguio City government are optimistic that these measures will foster disciplined driving and a more sustainable urban environment.

In 2022, Baguio tried to improve mass transportation with TWG. They also accepted proposals for cable car transport in the city. Both ideas were not in sight yet.

The proposal has sparked mixed reactions among residents and stakeholders, with some praising the initiative for its potential environmental benefits and improved traffic management, while others express concerns about its impact on commuters and local businesses. The public consultation process continues as the city seeks to balance various interests and achieve a consensus on the way forward.

The new extension includes five strategically located stations:

These stations are expected to serve as vital transit points, improving access to key areas and boosting economic activities along the route.

Phases 2 and 3 of the extension are planned to commence operations by 2031, further extending the line and continuing to enhance the transportation network in the region.

Here's what you need to know about DSWD's Ayuda para sa Kapos ang Kita Program (AKAP).



What is AKAP?

The Ayuda para sa Kapos ang Kita Program (AKAP) is a government initiative aimed at assisting those in our communities who are struggling against the rising prices of goods, ensuring they can meet their basic needs through Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). AKAP is specifically designed for minimum wage earners who are significantly affected by increasing inflation.


Who are the Beneficiaries of AKAP?

AKAP aims to provide various types of assistance to minimum wage earners. It is intended for citizens who do not have access to regular assistance because they are not considered among the poorest population. Citizens already receiving regular assistance from DSWD, such as 4Ps household beneficiaries and Indigent Senior Citizens, are not eligible for AKAP.

Funeral Assistance

Cash Relief
