Call to Arms The elements that consider us to be a nationstate are sovereignty, territory, people and government. Currently, our people and government are slowly tearing apart our society with irrational corruption and with aggressive protests that may lead to the slow disintegration of our national unity. Now, only we, the Filipinos, can do something about the grave wherein greed and corruption have buried us with a seemingly inescapable layer of earth.
To Help the Nation in This Crisis as a Filipino:
