Cebu: Groups kick off weeklong anti-Martial Law activities

CEBU CITY, Philippines – A multisector group composed of private individuals, progressive groups and political organizations here have joined forces to hold a weeklong activity starting Monday, September 17, to commemorate the 46th anniversary of the declaration of martial law by the deposed dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

Tindig Pilipinas-Cebu, People’s Campaign Against Tyranny, and Akbayan Youth, first banded together with indignation campaigns during the burial of ousted strongman in the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani on November 18, 2016.

At present, they continue advocating for the protection of human rights and social justice.

Tindig Pilipinas-Cebu is also campaigning for the integration to the educational system of what transpired during the Marcos Regime. 

The group is spearheading “Remembering Martial Law and Rekindling the People Power,” a weeklong, series of activities to commemorate the declaration of martial law from September 17 to 21.

The group said the aim of the activities is "to make sure that Cebu does not forget, those who have forgotten will remember, and those who are not aware will know."
