Only a day left before the Citizen’s Assembly rally at the Luneta Park and here are the public figures who have expressed their support to block the Marcos Burial at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani.
Montreal-based 2008 Palanca Award winner Miguel Syjuco showed his disapproval of the Marcos Burial at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani by contributing an article to Rappler, calling on Filipinos to protest the said burial:
He also shared a video of “Bawat Bato”, an earlier protest on the Marcos Burial where activitsts dropped stones bearing the names of dead Martial Law victims on the proposed burial site of Ferdinand Marcos:
He also shared a GIF promotional material for the Citizen’s Assembly that is taking place tomorrow and it is implied that he may be attending the rally:
(He has more posts opposing the Marcos Burial which you can read on here)
Radio commentator and Koalisyonng Katoliko Kristiyano party leader Lito David also showed solidarity for Citizen’s Assembly. It is worth noting that at the age of 19, he was one of the student journalists targeted by the Marcos administration.
In his post supporting the Citizen’s Assembly, he perfectly mentioned how the President was privileged enough to be protected from the atrocities of the Martial Law due to his father’s alliance with Ferdinand Marcos.
[On a side note: we do not know the motives of the President’s father supporting Marcos but the President’s motives of supporting Marcos and his successors, Aquino, Ramos, Estrada, Arroyo and Aquino III may have something to do with being so desperate to advance his political career, even if some of his successors did some huge damage to our country (and hey, whoring himself to our previous Presidents paid off – he’s now President thanks to them!)]
Konsensya Dabaw (Conscience Davao), a Facebook page based in Davao City also expressed their support for Citizen’s Assembly by publishing a list of Davaoenos who were Martial Law victims:
Rep. Teddy Brawner Baguilat of Ifugao also expressed his support for the Citizens’ Assembly by headlining a Press Conference for the rally last August 9:
