    In observance of the World Press Freedom Day today, three-term Senator and now Deputy Speaker, Loren Legarda, called for increased protection and support for journalists and media practitioners in the country, thus pushing for more responsive and effective efforts in protecting their rights and welfare.

    “Freedom of the press is essential for democracy. It is the right of the people to be given truthful and timely information, especially in these trying times. Press freedom is equated to transparency which enables our people to engage in meaningful participation in public affairs. It also promotes accountability and curtails corruption, a long-standing obstacle to our country’s development,” Legarda said.

    Deputy Speaker Loren Legarda today paid tribute to the millions of Filipino workers in the country and abroad as the nation celebrates Labor Day on May 1.

    “I salute our country’s workforce, our health practitioners, farmers, fisherfolk, teachers, salespersons, construction workers, drivers, security guards, cleaners, policemen, government employees, and Overseas Filipino Workers, among others, for their significant contribution to the country’s economy and overall development, especially amid the ongoing pandemic,” said Legarda.

    This pandemic, the global crisis, and the successive disasters that we have experienced before allowed us to reflect on our actions that are seemingly at war with our environment. Now is the right time for us to tackle environmental degradation with urgency.

    There’s an invisible tie that binds health and climate, recently seen in the unintended effect of the Covid-19 recovery package. As many of us were forced to stay home, and the steel mills practically ground to a halt, the environment rapidly improved in the slowing down of human activities. Around the world, air pollution is reduced, wildlife reclaimed some of their habitats.

    I have come to greatly admire the leadership of Senator Loren Legarda.

    Some of the legislation that she has not only introduced but enacted, are now being regarded as model for many other countries around the world. She has been a passionate advocate for many years and she is now in a position of great authority and influence in the Senate. I meet with a lot of leaders around the world who deal with the climate issue. It really is a genuine pleasure to work with Senator Legarda.
