All freedom and democracy-loving Filipinos, especially in Northern Luzon, should reject this re-writing of history and serious attempt of the Marcoses to reclaim political power. Let us expose the lie of the Solid North!
The activity will include direct testimonies from the victims of martial law in Northern Luzon, a backgrounder to the assassination of Macliing Dulag and the people’s Cordillera Day, a discussion on people’s lawyering during martial law, cultural numbers, and photo exhibits on the Marcos Ill-Gotten Wealth and Northern Luzon Heroes and Martyrs from Bantayog ng mga Bayani.
Highlight of the event will be a tribute to former Senators Jose W. Diokno, Lorenzo Tañada, and Atty. William F. Claver, exemplary human rights lawyers who set up the Free Legal Assistance Group and who defended pro bono people struggling to break free from the shackles of the fascist dictatorship.
