Listen to the voices of Martial Law victims

Now you'll understand.


( When President Rodrigo Duterte in August gave the green light to bury former President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Martial Law victims, activists, and thousands others convened in various citizens' assemblies, compiled signatures, and filed cases at the Supreme Court of the Philippines. It was a relief that a 20-day status quo ante order was announced on August 23, and then extended to last until October 18. This canceled Marcos's burial on September 18, his 99th birth anniversary. Oral arguments on six petitions against the said burial were presented to the high court on August 31.


Ted Te posted on his Facebook page a recording of the session, wherein "the horrors of martial law became real again through the personal, first hand [sic] accounts of enforced disappearance, extrajudicial killing, arbitrary detention, torture, rape, brutality, and violence by survivors of those dark days." If books and historical facts aren't enough to make you believe the stories about the Marcos regime, then these accounts are well worth your time.
