PAHAYAG NG LIBERAL YOUTH UKOL SA PLANONG GAWING “ARAW NI FERDINAND MARCOS” ANG SETYEMBRE 11 KADA TAON SA ILOCOS NORTE

Walang batas ang makakapagpabango sa pangalan ng isang diktador.

Pinaaalala nito na, sa ilalim ng rehimeng Duterte, hindi kailanman rerespetuhin ang kalayaan ng mga mamamahayag na gawin ang kanilang trabaho.
