Statement on former President Marcos’ burial in the Libingan ng mga Bayani today
November 18, 2016
Marcos is no hero.
We protest the burying of Ferdinand Marcos earlier today at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. The Marcos family, with treachery and malice, carried out the burial while the petitioners, who themselves have yet to receive a copy of the decision, have informed the Supreme Court that a Motion for Reconsideration will be filed and hence the judicial process is still taking its course.
We are concerned that the police and the military once again allowed their institutions to aid the self-serving agenda of the Marcoses – the same Marcos family that has undermined the professional ethos and destroyed the governance and security institutions during the dictatorship.
We hold the administration of President Duterte accountable. We believe that the President blatantly allowed this mockery of the judicial process in order to repay a debt of gratitude to the Marcoses.
We stand together with the thousands of Filipinos who protest this move by the Marcoses and President Duterte. We hold them accountable now. History will make them account for their actions in the future.
We rage and we protest. And we will not stop until those in power hear our cry: Marcos is no hero. Return him to Ilocos.
