Ferdinard E. Marcos, the dictator who stole millions from the Filipino people and under his ruling saw the death and torture of thousands, will be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani as per today’s ruling of the Supreme Court.
Nine justices from highest judicial institution of our country ruled in favor of the burial while five voted against it. Since news broke out of this blatant injustice to many families whose relatives had gone missing, rape victims, tortured journalists, indiegenous tribes, government employees, liberal students and teachers who spoke against the abusive Marcos regime, social media hasn’t been so silent.

Ang Korte Suprema mismo ang nagnanais na parangalan natin ang isang mandarambong at diktador. Nakakahiya ito at nakakalungkot. pic.twitter.com/M9wZ5PeHSA

Marcos IS NOT a hero & will never be. His triumphs during his time can NEVER justify the death of thousands. We will not forget. #NeverAgain

"Ang mamatay nang dahil sa iyo"
Once sung by Filipinos to our nation, now just an expression of how justice has perished. #MarcosNotAHero
