Never have the Aquino supporters, Martial Law victims and anti-Marcos rallyists dreamed their assembly would be met with resistance from another rallying group, despite guarantees by President Rodrigo Duterte that they can rally all they want and the police will not turn them away under lawful circumstances.
And that same rally rights apparently extend to those who favor the late former president Ferdinand Marcos too.
According to Sangkay Janjan, the crowds supporting Marcos’ burial at the Heroes’ Cemetery (locally called Libingan ng mga Bayani) match if not exceed those who are against it.
This development is sure to outrage the Aquino and Liberal Party supporters, especially if it continues. Currently, oral arguments regarding Ferdinand Marcos’ burial are taking place, with those in favor and against it making their cases.
