Telum Vox Pop: Philippine Independence Day

By Halee Andrea Alcaraz, Carlo Molina, George Putong, Nico Regino

In celebration of the Philippines' Independence Day, we asked journalists across the country about nationalism and nation-building. As the Philippines continues to face various crises, journalists shared their thoughts on the need to be more nationalistic and the traits that Filipinos need to let go of to build a stronger and better nation.
