A video on the history of women in the struggle for Philippine freedom

Concept by XIAO CHUA (consultant for Rock Rizal)
Directed by Samantha Masigan

Isang music video ukol sa kasaysayan ng kababaihan sa pakikibaka para sa kalayaan ng Pilipinas, sa mga lalaking bayani na tumulong sa pagpapalaya ng kababaihan ng mga Sisa sa ating lipunan, at sa mga Gabriela Silang na nag-angat ng imahe ng babae mula sa pagkabusabos. Alay namin kay Ma’am Gang Badoy, sa ating Araw ng Kasarinlan, sa ika-151 na kaarawan ni Jose Rizal, at sa mga guro ng kasaysayan.

Sisa, tuwing umuula’y nababalisa
Dasal mo ba’y wala nang bisa
Nagiisa sa alaala ng pag-asa

Sisa, ano ang dahilan ng pagdurusa
Humihiyaw na parang itim na pusa
At kusang gumagapang tungo sa

Bangin
Gagaling ka pa kaya

Sisa, ihele ang punit-punit na blusa
At nariyan na ang mga turista’t segurista
Amoy gasolina

Balita, hiniwa ng bala ang barikada
Nagkita ang bayoneta at bituka
Ang martsa tuloy tuloy sa dulo ng

Bangin
Gagawin ko ang lahat

Mga bata, kay hirap bigkasin ng abakada
Pumila sa labas ng embahada
Disgrasya, nilamon na ng balyena

Isla, binalot binagsak at binalasa
Kailan ba matatapos ang kwaresma
Ang dila, nakakadena

Papawirin, papawi rin
Tatawirin, tatawirin ang bangin
