Nene Pimentel was a ‘happy warrior’

04:03 AM October 23, 2019

Nene Pimentel was a happy warrior. He lived long enough to nurture our civil liberties that he fought for, and was jailed for. He witnessed a new generation arising on the wings of a struggle inspired by his own dream and sacrifices.

Mayor and Senate President Nene Pimentel will remain in our history as an indomitable comrade in the struggle against the dictatorship, and a champion of good local governance.

While his family and our nation grieve over his passing, let us celebrate Nene’s death — a Filipino phoenix arisen from his grave.
