November 21, 2016. These photos were sent by Edwin of PLM. Sorry for the grainy photos. This was part of an impromptu march yesterday, from the Balic-Balic church led by Fr. Eric Adoviso, to Welcome Rotunda, to protest the sneak burial of dictator Marcos and to remember the atrocities of martial law and the lack of justice for people until now.

November 18, 2016. Protest against the clandestine burial of the dictator Marcos at the People's Power Monument. The protest later on atttacted mostly young people, those not even born during the martial law days. This is the product of the martial law generation passing on the education to their sons and daughters and by those who have become teachers and educators today. The young protestors are shouting the martial law generation's slogans: "Makibaka, Huwag Matakot!", "Marcos, Hitler, Diktador, Tuta!" They're even singing Bayan Ko. These young people do not even belong to any radical organizations. They're just students of history. History that cannot be covered up, as anyone can now use the social media to research the dark days of the dictatorship. The young people also sense history in the making -- the climate of fear leading to martial law, more repressions and another dictatorship. The youth have taken up the cudgel and PLM has every reason to believe that the protests will continue.

Duterte Enables Sneak Burial of Marcos’ Remains


The burial of Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) was hurriedly and secretively carried out, with military-style logistical support. A military helicopter brought the body from Ilocos Norte, where the former dictator’s body was displayed in the Marcos Museum, to the LNMB. The marines and the police were mobilized to encircle the perimeter of the cemetery. They were placed on ‘red alert’.


The enabler was President Rodrigo Duterte. It was, all along, a state sponsored burial. Duterte ordered it, the Supreme Court authorized it. The burial was accompanied with a 21-gun salute and the pompous ceremony that accompanies an official burial.


Did they actually think they could get away with it? Thousands, predominantly youth and university students, spontaneously walked out of class rooms and immediately took to the streets to protest the burial, sending the President a clear message that this is a miscalculation he will be made to regret.


A new generation took to the streets demonstrating that it would be the guardians of a history that was also proudly made by the generation of the ‘first quarter storm’ – the student radicalization that was the basis for an organized mass movement that led to the overthrow of the Marcos dictatorship. The young protestors chanted the slogans of the martial law generation: "Makibaka, Huwag Matakot!", "Marcos, Hitler, Diktador, Tuta!" They sang Bayan Ko. Most of them do not belong to any radical organization. They are students of history. A history that cannot be covered up.  A product of the continuing organization and education of the martial law generation.


Significantly, the young people also sense history in the making -- the climate of fear leading to martial law, of more repressions and another dictatorship. A new generation has signaled that it will not stand by and watch this happen. They have sent a warning to the Duterte administration. They have now taken up the cudgel.


With the authority of these mass rallies they have declared that the protests will continue. They have put forward some demands, chanting “hukayin” – “dig up the body” and bury it where it belongs: in the dustbin of history.


PLM will accompany the youth in this struggle and in the coming struggles under an administration that refuses to learn the lessons of history.

A new party is born. A party for our times.

A party of Change! A party of Socialism!

“Pare-pareho lamang silang trapo!
Mangungurakot na naman yan!
Bobolahin na naman nila tayo!”

Sounds really familiar. We have heard this expression from people of all walks of life time and again. An automatic response, when one is asked about a certain politician or politicians in general.

For decades, generations of politicians from the same clan and some new ones have been deceiving the masses. Every election for them has been an opportunity to make more promises. And after every election, all these remain just that – promises.
