Salvage = kill

To my international friends!

Did you know?

The word “salvage” has negative connotations in the Philippines.

In the Philippines, the word “salvage” which normally means “rescue” became synonymous to “kill” during the regime of Ferdinand Marcos, a.k.a. Hitler of the Philippines.

During Philippine Martial Law, people were not allowed to speak out against the government. Any form of backlash (an essay, a mobilization, a piece of art, etc.) against Marcos’ acts (WHICH INCLUDES STEALING OF PUBLIC FUNDS, TORTURE AND KILLING OF FILIPINOS WHO OPPOSE HIM, ETC.) could possibly result in you simply disappearing.

Your family will never know what happened to you.

Next thing they know, they’ll find your body lying in a ditch.

Bloody. Bruised. Battered.

Tortured.

Murdered.

During his regime:


3,257 people have been killed by the military


35,000 were tortured


That was more than thirty years ago.

Up to this day, the Marcos family enjoys their ill-gotten wealth, money stolen from the Filipino people.

Up to this day, many of these victims’ cases have not been brought to justice just yet.

Up to this day, Marcos’ children (WHO ARE IN PUBLIC OFFICE EVEN, WTF PHILIPPINES) still do not admit the atrocities committed by their monster of a father during his regime.

Today, this monster of a man was given a hero’s burial at the “Libingan ng mga Bayani” (direct translation: Cemetery of Heroes).

We have protested against this from day 1 but our current president is a political ally of the Marcoses.

Today is a blatant attempt of the Marcoses and their allies on rewriting Philippine History.

Let it be known that we will never forget.

Marcos is not a hero.
