Twenty-eight years after the death of Ferdinand Marcos, the ghost of the dictator still haunts the nation. A culture of death and impunity has re-emerged and thousands are being killed without due process.
Even his burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani desecrates the land intended for the heroes we look up to.
Never shall we forget the atrocities under his tyrannical and unjust regime. Never shall we forget the victims who suffered and those who died fighting for our freedoms.
Never again shall we allow our children relive the horrors of martial rule.
Today, we mourn not because a dictator died but because until now, 45 years since the declaration of Marcos’s martial law, we still cry for justice.
