- 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.
The creatives tell us why.

They say Marcos Sr. is a fake hero. Some say Marcos is just that - fake. Here's why.
Rain or Shine, life - and protests - must go on!
The pains of the past also crop up at every opportunity.
Even the dead have something to say.

Look! Jose Rizal counts the reasons why the President green-lighted this burial.
The superheroes were present too! I guess the heroes can't miss this one. After all, it's their final resting place.
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.
If the superheroes are there, the politicians should be, too. Let the roll call begin!
The Lone Districts' Representatives Teddy Baguilat of Ifugao and Arlene "Kaka" J. Bag-ao of the Dinagat Islands shared their two cents.
Albay Representative Edcel Lagman was there.
Senator Risa Hontiveros was there too!
Senator Kiko Pangilinan expressed his protest with the people as well.
If the colors are being questioned, there has to be a reason why. Look who we found!
Of course, the hugot lines had to keep up appearances.
The Presidential Communications Office can't let this one go without saying something. Communication, remember?
How about you? What have you got?
