Progressives from various sectoral groups unite to call justice for victims of Marcos’ dictatorial regime and to continue the struggle against state fascism amid growing count of human rights violations under the Duterte administration.
Groups held the program at Liwasang Bonifacio in the afternoon and marched to Mendiola, Manila where they burned the first effigy under the new administration.
Here are the photos of the International Day of Human Rights 2016 celebration in Manila.
The 12-feet high effigy bears the face of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. It depicts the political rehabilitation of the Marcoses and continuing state fascism, which include extrajudicial killings, still detained political prisoners, and continuing military operations through Oplan Bayanihan counter-insurgency program.
