- Social media is once again abuzz - with the juicy bits of Marcos Sr.'s burial no less

- While some people ignored the bad weather to join in on the anti-burial rally in Luneta, some netizens and politicians made their thoughts known via social media

- Dissenters expressed their thoughts on Marcos' burial using the hashtags #MarcosFakeHero, #NoToMarcosBurialAtLNMB, and #MarcosIsNotAHero

Amidst the controversies circling the impending burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) on September 18 - a week after his 99th birthday - dissenters have made their presence known and organized a non-partisan citizens' assembly at the Lapu-Lapu Area, in Rizal Park, Manila on Sunday, August 14.

The organizers, on their Facebook page, have posted:

Every day that passes, Marcos' burial at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani become more and more inevitable. Reportedly, President Duterte's willingness to allow the burial is because he doesn't see widespread opposition to it. We need to prove him wrong.

Before the president makes an official announcement and goes past the point of no return, we Filipinos need to make our strong opposition loud and clear.

The rally has pushed through despite the rain, and netizens, present or not, made sure their oppositions were heard.

Maybe we didn't clarify enough? Is the Heroes' Cemetery reserved for good heroes only? How about the bad ones? Oh, I think they are called villains.
