PH Embassy in Brussels hosts Filipino Community Celebration of 155th Birth Anniversary of Rizal

On 19 June 2016, the Philippine Embassy joined the Filipino Community, including the Knights of Rizal (KOR) from various chapters all over Belgium, in celebrating the 155th birthday of Philippine National Hero, Dr Jose RIzal.

Speaking on behalf of Ambassador Victoria S Bataclan, Deputy Chief of Mission and Consul General Alan L Deniega welcomed nearly 80 guests at the Philippine Embassy in Brussels, among who are the Filipino and Belgian leaders and members of the Alst Chapter, Brussels Chapter, Charleroi Chapter, Diamond Chapter, and El Filibusterismo Belgium Chapter of the KOR, as well as the leaders and members of Kababaihang Rizalista and Las Damas de Rizal.

ConGen Deniega noted the welcome and hospitality Dr Rizal received in Belgium. Dr Rizal spent some months in Belgium, including Brussels and Ghent, where he continued to write articles for La Solidaridad and eventually concluded his second seminal novel, El Filibusterismo. This year is especially significant not only because of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Belgium, but also because of the 125th anniversary of the publication of the El Filibusterismo in Ghent. The Embassy in partnership with the KOR is currently preparing for a commemorative conference on Dr Rizal in September in Ghent. Renowned Filipino historian Ambeth Ocampo will be among the speakers.

A floral offering was conducted on the grounds of the Embassy, followed by a programme of fellowship and affirmation to the ideals and principles of Dr Rizal. A Capella Manila, a choral group based in the Philippines, joined in the celebrations and presented a repertoire of contemporary and traditional Filipino songs.
