In commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of the declaration of martial law on September 21, 1972 Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) calls on all those who experienced this dark side of our history as a nation to assert the truth about the atrocities of Martial Law and challenge the massive efforts of the Marcoses and its allies to intentionally distort history and mislead our youth today.   

Commemoration of Martial Law must be a celebration of Filipino heroism.  Commemoration of Martial Law must be a call for the generation of today to never allow this to happen again. Commemoration of martial must be a reiteration of commitment to assert justice for all victims and resistance to any kind of distortion that perpetrators who are now in power again try to propagate.


We are alarmed and saddened that the Marcoses were able to come back to power. They are slowly and silently gaining the hearts of the youth by spreading their own truth and distort facts through the use of the social networking sites. “Bong-bong Marcos for President” facebook page has gained more than 100,000 likes.

Imelda Marcos was and is in fact confident that they will be back in Malacanang soon.

Therefore we must show and tell the generation of today stories and facts of sacrifices and openly expose and oppose the Marcoses and its allies by maximizing all fronts including the social networking sites in reaching the youth. We will not only remember but we will commit to also launch an information campaign to educate our youth.  

The youth must know that the freedoms we enjoy today was paid for in blood by our martyrs and heroes. This generation and the generations to come must know the truth about the tyranny and oppression of the Marcoses. The youth must know that Filipinos under the Marcos dictatorship were arbitrarily arrested, tortured, disappeared and killed. The youth must know that massive corruption were perpetrated by the Marcoses and its allies and still are enjoying the money that they stole from the people up to now.

The youth must learn that the lesson is to not let the Marcoses regain Malacanang and use it to redeem their names.  

Although we are no match to the wealth of the Marcoses that they are using in propagating their distorted truth, we believe in the power of facts about the thousands of documented cases of human rights atrocities perpetrated by the late Ferdiand Marcos, we believe in the commitment of that generation to continuously resist and refuse to forget. The generation of today must know our stories of sacrifice and courage, of selfllessness and commitment, of resistance and struggle against tyranny!

We implore the “martial law” generation to stand up, speak up and say: Never again to tyranny. Never again to the Marcoses. We, who survived those times, owe it to our martyrs and heroes!

This nation owes a debt of gratitude to the countless faceless and nameless Filipinos who defied a dictator and his armed minions. This we shall never forget. Not while we breathe.Not while we live!

Never again to martial law! Never Again to the Marcoses!
