In the wake of former President and Dictator Ferdinand Marcos’ controversial burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, the country has been bombarded with back to back protests and rallies from Filipinos who firmly disagree with the deception the Marcoses orchestrated.
The divide between Marcos’ supporters and his detractors has polarized not just regular citizens but government officials as well.
Different political personalities have shared their opinions and presented solutions to quell the rage of Filipinos who are angry about the dubious circumstances of Marcos’ burial.
Recently, Senator Richard Gordon presented the idea of changing the name of the Libingan ng mga Bayani back to the Republic Memorial Cemetary.
Although Senator Gordon opposed most of Marcos’ decisions when he was president, he firmly believes that he passed the standards to be buried at LNMB.
According to his interview in Bombo Radyo, the senator simply wants to end the growing division in our country between Marcos’ supporters and his detractors.
Protests are still ongoing today, and there are still numerous people who are crying out for justice for the victims of the atrocities perpetrated during Martial Law.
Bayan Muna Partylist Rep. Neri Colmenares pointed out that their rights as petitioners have been taken away.
Though the decision of the Supreme Court is not yet considered final, they have already released an official statement that Marcos’ burial at LNMB is considered legal since there was no law broken nor any case filed against it.
