Zumel and other genuine heroes memorialized at the Bantayog

Revolutionary journalist Antonio Zumel was honored with 18 other heroes and martyrs at the latest roll of the the Bantayog ng mga Bayani’s Wall of Remembrance on November 30, 2016.

Former senator, rights advocate and Bantayog’s Board of Trustees Chairperson Wigberto “Bobby” Tanada presented the citations of the event, held during Andres Bonifacio’s 153’s birth anniversary.

Organizers and attendees said the event was in direct contrast with the recent Marcos burial by the Duterte government which spurred widespread protests throughout the country. (Featured photo by Sarah Raymundo)
