Guillermo cited how it is being done in Germany where the crimes and wrongdoings of the Nazis are being discussed as early as the elementary level.In 2013, a law was passed to compensate victims of martial law, in effect recognizing human rights abuses during the Marcos regime. Meanwhile, in 2018, the Sandiganbayan convicted former first lady Imelda Marcos, wife of the dictator, of graft but has yet to serve jail time since her case is under appeal.

"Ang mas importante at mas mabisang programang pang-edukasyon na maisusulong sana ay pagtuturo ng mga kasalanan ng pamilyangMarcossa konteksto ng mas malawakang proyekto ng pagtuturo ng pagpapahalaga sa karapatang pantao, mga kalayaang demokratiko at pagtanggi sa anumang pasistang diktatura,"

Guillermo said.[Translation: What's important and could be a much more effective educational program that could be pushed is to teach the sins of the Marcos family in the context of a much wider project of teaching the importance of human rights, democratic freedom and rejection of any form of fascist dictatorship.] headtopics.com

Disinformation effortsUP President Danilo Concepcion scored the efforts to spread lies and disinformation about martial law in different social media platforms.Concepcion said the academe must not condone these acts."Mas naging mabilis ang daluyan ng impormasyon sa panahon ng

social media.At kasabay nito ay ang paglaganap din ng disimpormasyon. Nagkaroon ng pagkakataon ang ilan na baluktutin ang katotohanan. Hinding-hindi po natin hahayaan ito bilang unibersidad at dambana ng dunong at dangal,"Concepcion said.[Translation: The flow of information is so much faster under this time of social media. And with this, the rampant spread of disinformation. Others have taken this opportunity to bend the truth. As a shrine of knowledge and honor, this university will never allow this to happen.]

Guillermo claimed the orchestrated disinformation and misinformation efforts are funded by the Marcoses through their so-called ill-gotten wealth.And he also theorizes that former senator Bongbong Marcos may capitalize on this in launching his possible presidential bid in next year's polls.

"Ang kalaban dito ay pera at korupsyon. Pera na ninakaw sa bayan na hindi na ibinalik.

The enemy of true history is the never-ending flow of money that is being used to clean and erase the sins of the Marcoses on the pages of history. And with money, they are changing what's written in history with a fairytale.]

Resurfacing of mythsUP Los Baños professor Roderick Javar said most of the claims now circulating online were mostly lifted from commissioned and manipulated biographies of the late dictator.He cited the books"For Every Tear, A Victory" published in 1964 and"Marcos of the Philippines" published in 1969, both written by American novelist Hartzell Spence, and succeeding biographies that were based on Spence's works.

Javar identified some claims in those biographies that were supposedly manipulated like the extraordinary capabilities of Marcos when he was just a baby -- things Javar said are humanly impossible."Bago pa raw siya mag-isang taon ay matatas na siya magsalita at matatas na siyang makipag-usap sa mga matatanda.

DaintyDhang I was in the P.I when Marcos was removed by the US. I also lived in Indonesia during the reign of Suharto. Corruption was rife in both countries and the same scenario with people refusing to accept the atrocities of both these monsters. Let the truth come out!🙏 We should be dedicating a whole semester to martial law.

Marcos parin. You mean to tell me it took 34 years for them to come to that realization? Even during the time of the Holocaust, Nazis did not admit that there are human violations. The dictator will never admit it thus, people who believe that Martial Law is our golden years, are the people killing the truth behind the real story.

There is no revisioning of history. History have 2 faces, like for example Aguinaldo. In the past, you wont learn that he meted Bonifacio his death sentence. And wont learn that Gen Luna had Philippine treasures that was given to the Cojuancos To stop the spread of disinformation, correct the written book of Philippine history and reflect the true account of Marcos dictatorship. Make sure that its taught in schools and universities, People Power is a great gift from the Filipinos to the world, be proud.

the yellows draw the book demonised marcoses that's their agenda and some UP 'scholars' are being used as tools...why should i listen to these 'scholars'? they listen joma... FM once told my grandfather who was a city mayor during his presidency “keep the people hungry so you will be the one to feed them”. Disgusting! NeverAgain

‘Go na go ako dun,’ says Robredo on Marcos’ one-on-one challenge in 2022 pollsICYMI: Vice President Leni Robredo is more than ready for a one-on-one face-off with former Senator Bongbong Marcos in the 2022 presidential elections. Reason nya para tumakbo, para sa partido at ayaw lng maging presidente si BBM.. ano aasahan sa knya kung sya mging pres You have my vote VP Leni ❤️

Martial law led to “poor” Filipinos. No good came out of it. Never again! yeah..talamak na sa youtube at facebook. Bastos pa ang mga bunganga, same sa idol nilang 👹 at sinasanto pa. 🙄😒 Idokumento isa isa ang karanasan ng lahat ng political detainees, mga pinakulong, pinaratangan, kung may buhay pa; at ng mga naiwang pamilya ng mga ipinapatay dahil sa idealismo o pagkritiko sa diktaduryang Marcos

Mukhang nasapian ng demonyo. Yung parang sa movie na exorcist. 😈😈 They went full blast with revisionism after burying the plunderer-dictator in the libingan ng mga bayani. Yeah, it's about time you give the dead man credits for the good he has done for the nation on the first half of his presidency. Martial law era is very overrated. We focus too much on the tragedies in our history, no wonder we have this defeatist attitude as a nation. 😕

At bakit, ikayayaman ba yan ng bansa natin? Ikakatalino ba yan ng mga studyante? Makaka-compete ba tayo sa ibang bansa sa pag asenso? ... Kaloka, puro na lang MARCOS! The Marcoses are coming back to power because nothing really have changed eversince they were exiled. If PH have greatly improved from the time two Aquinos have led the country, it would be a different story. But, after PNoy,looks like more pinoys just don’t believe them anymore

Yes, rather than give pressure to talk show hosts, look into the quality of education/curriculum w/c should tackle the real issue. Schools haven't taught enough & haven't t given enough importance to this piece of history. How will the new generation know the truth & remember?

I'm an Ilocano but I'm wise and I use my common sense, not just for the sake of populist. bakit hindi niyo rin ihighight ultimate reason ng Martial Law? iplay mo voice record ni FEM na ayaw niya masaktan ang mga Pilipino since he has been protecting them for a long time? bakit until now binibrainwash ninyo mga Pilipino age of information na ngayon.
