Explain to the Zamboangueños the deliberate disregard and violation of the historic Fort Pilar Museum

The FORT PILAR which holds the Shrine and Museum is an important part of the history of Zamboanga, Mindanao and the Philippines in general. Nothwithstanding, the landmark is a local treasure and a source of pride for the Zamboangueños.
The National Museum of the Philippines has implemented a project to upgrade and expand the Fort Pilar Zamboanga National Museum Branch. However this project, based on its current state, has been a wanton disregard of the people's pride and source of joy which, is a clear indication of how a national office, supposed to honor local culture and pride has ironically committed an unequivocal exclusion of such by totally violating the place, turning the once historic place into what resembles an asylum- putting on bland, tasteless white walls where used to be red brick walls full of character and historical vibe.
For a people who have lost so much in last year's siege, in about the same time that this project started, we cannot afford to lose some more, especially this important landmark which, we hold close to our hearts as it is a bastion of our rich cultural heritage and has become symbolic to our multicultural character as a city.
