Duterte and Marcos are the same


The Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) and Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses and Martial Law (Carmma) led a mass protest in Manila on September 21 to commemorate the 49th anniversary of the martial law declaration by Ferdinand Marcos.

The protesters said that it is important to mark the anniversary of martial law due to the prevalence of fascism and threat of the tyrant Duterte to cling to power. They pointed out the need to remember the dark years of martial law to prevent the return of the Marcoses to Malacañang and their attempts to revise history.

Similar protests were held in the cities of Baguio, Calamba, Cebu, Iloilo, Davao and Cagayan de Oro, as well as in Cavite and Cagayan Valley.

Simultaneously, health workers protested in Bacolod City to demand humane working conditions. A day earlier, farmers protested in Bacolod City to commemorate the Escalante Massacre which took place during the US-Marcos dictatorship.
Coordinated protest actions were also mounted in the United Kingdom, Hongkong, Montreal in Canada, France, the Netherlands, Chicago, New York, Seattle in the US, South Korea and Belgium.
