It's the Brave Widow phenomenon happening again in the Philippines!
1986: Cory vs. Marcos,
NOW Leni vs. BBM!
Let's be VIGILANT!
It's the Cory Aquino phenomenon happening again
in the Philippines!
As Cory Aquino did 30 years ago, Leni Robredo is courageously battling the son of the dictator who pillaged the country for over 20 years.
Bongbong Marcos: Remember the 30, 000 Victims of Martial Law! Rape; sexual assault; beatings; electrocution; enforced disappearances; being buried alive; shot in cold blood; hog-tied; water torture; solitary confinement; sleep deprivation.
“Everything the country experienced back then truly happened. It was not a myth, it was not just a fabrication,” Robredo said
Robredo said she was saddened by postings on Facebook and Twitter, especially by young people, characterizing the Marcos dictatorship from 1972 to 1986 as the best years of the Philippines.
“When I go on social media, I see a lot of comments that are not true,” said VP Leni Robredo.
“Many mistakenly believe that what we went through more than 30 years ago were the best years in our history.”
“There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Always!”
