'Never give up honor, sovereignty and sovereign rights'
MetadataShow full item record
Our sovereign rights in the West Philippine Sea, like our honor as UP alumni, are priceless. They are not for sale. No generation of Filipinos, and no individual Filipino, has the right to sell or waive the country’s sovereign rights in the West Philippine Sea. Any such sale or waiver is a betrayal of the nation. In this battle to defend and preserve our sovereign rights in the West Philippine Sea, we use the most powerful weapon ever invented by man, a weapon that can neutralize warships, warplanes, missiles and nuclear bombs, and that weapon is the rule of law.
