- A lone protestor wept at the LNMB gate when Marcos was buried
- The 22-year-old said that she felt for the victims of Martial Law and that Marcos was not an honorable man
- She emphasized that Filipinos wasted the efforts of those who fought the dictator and earned the country its freedom
The cries of protest fell on deaf ears after President Duterte and nine Supreme Court justices stood pat on their decisions to bury ex-president and dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the hallowed grounds of the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
One lone protester, wept at the gate of LNMB when she learned that the dictator would be buries at that time.
The 22-year-old left work so as to protest the burial. She said she didn’t care whether there was a staged protest or she would be alone.
"I am mad because we allowed Marcos to be buried in this sacred ground intended for honorable men," Nicole Aliasas said.
"Marcos is not honorable. He is by no means honorable," she stated further.
Although Aliasas does not have any relative who became a victim of Martial Law, she said that she is crying because she felt for the victims who stood up against the dictator.
"Yung pinaglaban nung mga taong yun 30 years ago (Those fought for by people 30 years ago), sinasayang lang natin (we’re just wasting it) by putting Marcos in sacred ground intended for honorable people," said Aliasas.
If what's happening at the LNMB made this 22-year-old cry, this dying father holding his newborn may just make you shed another tear.
