Anti-Marcos movements stage protest in Tuguegarao

CAGAYAN, Philippines- Ilocano protesters from around the Marcos-supporting provinces also staged indignation rallies, condemning the hero’s burial of late president and dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

Even under the rain, about less than a hundred of rallyists in this province converged Rizal Park in Tuguegarao and marched to the central business district of the city, shouting “Haan a bannuar ni Marcos!” (Marcos is no hero).

Protesters include Martial Law victims from the Cagayan Valley region and their families, militant groups and youth and student organizations.

Mia Liquigan, chairperson of the peasant group Karapatan-Cagayan Valley, said they are not tamed in protesting despite the evident large support to Marcoses in Cagayan.

“Alam po namin na Marcos-country ito pero umaasa kami na magkakaroon ng malayang pagpapahayag ang mga nagproprotesta, dahil kami po ay patuloy na sumasamo kahit po sa mga Marcos loyalists,” Liquigan said.

(We are aware that this is a Marcos-country but we are hoping that they will let us, the protesters, use our freedom of expression, as we continue to persuade even for the Marcos loyalists.)

Liquigan said that there were thousands of Martial Law victims in the region.

She said thousands have attended the regional meeting for the reparation for human rights victims during the Martial Law. – Northernforum.net
