Petitioners vs Marcos’ hero burial face off with loyalists outside SC

Supporters of the petition against Ferdinand Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani held a rally outside the Supreme Court last August 31 while oral arguments were being heard by the Supreme Court.

The protesters said that the burial of Marcos at a cemetery for “heroes” would insult the memory of those who fought for democracy and allows the warping of history through the rehabilitation of the late dictator’s reputation.

A crowd of Marcos loyalists heckled the rally when they arrived outside the SC.
