Mar, Kiko, Risa, Leila unite Luneta protest vs hero’s burial for Marcos
Bad weather did not stop hundreds of anti-Marcos advocates to stage a protest rally against the planned burial of the late dictator at the heroes’ cemetery.
In a huge rally held at Luneta, several groups voiced their sentiments that the late President Ferdinand Marcos do not deserve to be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani due to martial law abuses committed during his administration.
Among those who attended were Liberal Party stalwart Mar Roxas, Senators Risa Hontiveros, Kiko Pangilinan, Leila de Lima and Bam Aquino, former Senator Wigberto Tañada, and former Commission on Human Rights chair Etta Rosales.
“At the rally today opposing Marcos’ burial sa Libingan. Malinaw naman kung ano at sino ang bayani,” Roxas tweeted.
Hontiveros, in a Facebook post, said: “Ang Libingan ng mga Bayani ay para sa mga bayani, hindi sa diktador na pumaslang sa marami nating mga bayani. #MarcosNotAHero.”
