Mayor EdSa Leads Death March Anniversary [ Monday, 13th of April 2015 | 3 years ago ]


World War II veterans and their families attended the 73rd anniversary of Death March held at the City Train Station on April 9.

The commemoration was lead by City Mayor Edwin D. Santiago together with Vice Mayor Jimmy T. Lazatin, Councilor Nelson Lingat, and City Tourism and Investment Promotions Officer Ching Pangilinan.

Also present in the activity are members from the Veterans Federation of the Philippines, District Deputy Grand Master, Masonic District Region III – A, Very Worshipful Ernesto Dumas, members of Tiburcio Hilario Memorial Lodge no. 394 and Pampanga Masonic Lodge no. 48, Pedro Abad Santos Memorial Chapter – Order of Demolay, Samahan ng mga Kababaihan para sa Kaunlaran ng Santo Niño, SAFER Runners, Multi Sectoral Governance Council Executive Director Angelo David, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Amelia Julian and Department of Education – City Schools Division Principals.

According to Mayor EdSa, April 9 is an important day that created a mark on the history of Filipinos and especially to the Fernandinos, who showed courage and fought for the freedom of the country.

“Ipinagdiriwang natin ang Death March para manatili ang alaala ng mga kasamahan nating mga Pilipino na lumahok dito at tumayong simbolo ng katapangan at kagitingan,” said Mayor EdSa.

He also added that the Train Station in the city has a huge part in shaping the history of the country during World War II since this was a witness to the cruelty of the oppressors that took thousands of lives, both Filipinos and other foreign men.

For his part, SAFER Runners head, Edmundo Paez said that running from Bataan to San Fernando is a great way to show their commemoration on the day of Valor, adding, that in their own little way they could show others the importance or the goal of their run.

Meanwhile, City Tourism Officer Ching Pangilinan stated that they are going to include the Train Station and preserve it to become one of the tourists’ destinations promoting the rich heritage and culture of the city.

“The city was able to get funding from the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone [TIEZA] to restore the Train Station. We were able to have it restored through this grant given by them. We’ve also had it marked as a historic structure by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines,” said Pangilinan.

For now the city government of San Fernando is doing everything to restore the site much more the history that lay within the walls of the San Fernando Train Station.
