STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY FOR THE GLOBAL PROTEST AGAINST MARCOS BURIAL, STOP THE KILLINGS ,DEFEND DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS IN THE PHILIPPINES

Los Angeles- Protest the furtive burial of Dictator Marcos at LMNB and Fight for Our Democratic Rights!

It is a national tragedy when a dictator is buried with honors at the LMNB reserved for heroes. Even with the bourgeois standards, a dictator cannot be buried in that hollowed ground.

Thus today, on the 153rd Birth Anniversary of Supremo Andres Bonifacio we protest this travesty of injustice and historical revisionism in the United States, the Philippines and around the world.

It is more than tragic when a populist demagogue like Digong Duterte threatens human rights activists, makes mockery on anti-Marcos activists and threatens his people with the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus and eventually martial law like his idol Marcos have done in the past and he is duplicating at present

PPRD and his Supreme Court, Shame On You!

For sure he is not joking and but serious. At the rate that more than 5,600 “extra judicial killings’ or EJK’s had happened, we have no other means but to protests and stop this gross violations of our democratic rights.

We cannot bow to tyranny and gross injustices like the re-emergence of another tyrant disguised in populist rhetorics like Digong Duterte. In this trying times, we must steadfastly defend what we have won against the dictator for the last 30 years.

Today we join the Filipino people in our homeland and globally in protest against the furtive burial with honors of a dictator. We hold President Rodrigo Duterte responsible for this travesty of injustice and shame!

We also hold the reactionary Supreme Court in this travesty of lawlessness.

Never again martial law! Fight for our democratic rights!

Stop the killings!

Marcos is No Hero! Duterte and the Supreme Court, Shame on you!
