Aika Robredo mourns over SC ruling
Vice President Leni Robredo’s eldest daughter, Jessica Marie “Aika” Robredo, felt like “wearing black” like a lot of other Filipinos following Supreme Court’s (SC) November 8 decision.
“Never forget. #TaloAngPilipino,” Aika wrote to go with this poignant Instagram post bearing the phrase “Bayan ko, binihag ka nasadlak sa dusa”.
This is a callback to the most popular song during the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution, the same event that led to the ouster of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
Voting 9-5, the SC has green-lit Marcos’ hero’s burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. Indeed, it feels like something died just now.
