A plea by Ted Alcuitas
Today is the 45th year since Marcos declared martial law in the Philippines. We are posting images of the struggle during that era and will continue posting images from the past.
It is important that we recall what happened because it is now coming back to haunt us. The current administration of President Rodrigo Duterte is virtually putting the country under martial law. He runs rough shod over the lives of the poor , so-called ‘adiks’, mowing them like chickens in his demented ‘war on drugs’ while the ‘elite’ drug lords are spared from his murderous rampage.
Is the diaspora going to stand idly by and watch our brothers and sisters being butchered by a murderous president?
No! We will not!
Use the modern tools of the internet. We maybe far from the ground of the struggle but we have the power in our fingerstips.
Magkapit visit! Huwag Matakot!
