Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda:
Timeout for Rizal
[Released on June 20, 2011]
As instructed by the Executive Office, the National Library is open today to give our fellow citizens a rare chance to see the original copies of Rizal’s “Noli Me Tangere” and “El Filibusterismo” on display. The restoration of these priceless manuscripts, the founding documents of our nationhood, was made possible by a grant from the German government.
Also open to the public today are “Rizal in our midst: A homage to greatness,” at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, and for stamp collectors, the Rizaliana exhibit at the Post Office Building, Liwasang Bonifacio, Manila.
We urge the public to take the opportunity to reflect on the life and teachings of our national hero today.
