“I’m a Filipino and I stand for my country.”

Nadine Lustre made this statement on Instagram on Monday, July 27, as President Rodrigo Duterte delivered his fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA).

On Instagram, the actress shared a polaroid snap with the hand-painted text, “Pagbabago, hindi abuso. Pagkakaisa, wag mang-isa. Hawak kamay, wag hugas-kamay. 


“I’m a Filipino and I stand for my country. We deserve better!”

The post came with a short clip of the statement being painted onto a mirror. “Nakikiisa sa bayan na lumalaban,” she captioned the post, with the hashtag #SONAgkaisa, as part of a protest action that focuses on a number of issues such as the forced shutdown ABS-CBN, the anti-terror law, and the current administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Nadine was one of several artists who lent their voice to #SONAgKAISA, which was staged as a virtual concert and as a physical demonstration at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, alongside fellow ABS-CBN artists Angel Locsin, Iza Calzado, Jodi Sta. Maria, Enchong Dee, Maja Salvador, Gerald Anderson, and Julia Barretto.
