On the morning of Fri, Nov 18, the remains of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos got buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes’ Cemetery). It was a hushed and hurried affair, with the Marcos family requesting utmost privacy.
It was so private that only a few people knew about it.
The burial was underway at around noon and was over shorty after that. Marcos was given military honors, despite significant proof that he had faked his war records.
That offense of course, is on top of the other offenses that he will never atone for — from declaring martial law and tolerating the human rights violations that happened under his rule to plundering the nation’s coffers.
“The ceremony began with a 21-gun salute as soldiers in parade dress and ceremonial rifles stood to attention at the Libingan ng mga Bayani,” reports Voice of America News.
In the wake of the so-called “surprise burial,” people staged protests all over Metro Manila which lasted until the early hours of Sat
Here are some of the protest images.
