    At 5:00 pm, the Vice President attended the Rock Solid Book Launch at the Ateneo de Manila University. The launch of “Rock Solid: How the Philippines Won its Maritime Case Against China” was created by Ms. Marites D. Vitug. The book tells the story of the victory from the point of view of the Philippines through the use of original documents submitted to the tribunal as sources. The event was organized by the Social Sciences and the Department of Political Sciences, in collaboration with the University Press.

    In her message, the Vice President emphasized that we, together with other nations and the rule of law must continually unite to protect what is rightfully ours and by asserting the ruling. “This is our dream: that the rule of law and a rules-based system will prevail over international seas, proving to the nations of the world that in this age of turmoil and unrest, the human family deserves to be at peace. We believe that the Philippines does not have to go to war; the arbitral tribunal ruling has already set the workings of peace in motion. We just have to find a way to bring our neighbors together to assert the arbitral tribunal ruling, and to widen the circle of advocates for rule of law, to organizations and nations outside of Asia.”
