The city of Zamboanga will commemorate today the 156th birth anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal, in a simple program at Plaza Rizal.

The theme for this year’s commemoration is “The Emergence of Peace, Solidarity and Good Governance.”

The program will start with a flag raising ceremony spearheaded by Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco- Salazar and the Knights of Rizal Western Mindanao.

According to a city hall statement, Mayor Climaco is expected to espouse on the significance of Rizal’s birthday to the present situation amid the global threat on terrorism.

Representatives from various sectors are also expected to join the program.  (LAJ)
