The new revolutionaries
MANILA, Philippines – At noon on Friday, November 18, former president Ferdinand Marcos, whose long regime saw the death, disappearance and torture of thousands of activists, was buried at the Heroes’ Cemetery in a surprise ceremony. Protests, led largely by students, erupted across the country.
The old battlecry of martial law activists was resurrected as victims and human rights leaders spoke against historical revisionism.
Filmmakers Kiri Dalena, Jon Olarte and Paolo Villaluna along with photographer Carlo Gabuco document the day’s events in a video edited by Patricia Evangelista. – Rappler.com
