TV Host Bianca Gonzalez voiced out her support for the martial-law victims who are exerting a collective effort to educate the people about the abuses experienced by the victims during the Martial Law and to convince Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to drop his bid to win the vice presidential seat in the country.
In a series of tweets, Bianca used the hashtags “#NeverForget” and “#NeverAgain” without naming the specific candidate. Together with one of her tweets is a Facebook link of the video titled “Millenials for Martial Law.”
Bongbong's father, the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, declared martial law in 1972.
In her tweet on May 4, Bianca (@iamsuperbianca) said: “Just putting this video out there.#neverforget#neveragainhttps://t.co/DIuAEOQ93y”

The video is creatively done by a group called Campaign Against the Return of Marcoses To Malacañang (CARMMA) and features some of the reactions of the millenials upon hearing the brutal stories straight from martial-law victims.
In the video, the resource speakers talked about how they were tortured, electrocuted, and raped after getting arrested and detained for protesting against the administration of Ferdinand Marcos during the martial-law era.
Bianca said that such atrocities should not be given the slightest chance of being repeated; thus, electing the son of the late President Marcos should not be an option.
The 33-year-old Kapamilya TV host said in another tweet still on May 4: “Martial Law era saw good economy for the Philippines, but the violation of so many HUMAN rights is something we should #neverforget.”
The host also showed her disappointment with regard to how the voters belonging to the younger age group seem to be apathetic and indifferent against countless cases of human rights abuses during martial law. She tweeted: “Ironic how some kids say they don't mind Martial Law again. E konting suppression sa internet freedom galit na sila. What more HUMAN rights.”
Five days before the national elections will take place. Thus, Bianca sees it fit to remind fellow voters to choose their candidates wisely. It can be recalled that Bianca tweeted on April 24 that she is torn between two presidential candidates. However, she already has made up her mind as who to vote for vice president.
Another reminder Bianca told the voting public is to refrain from engaging in useless fights over election-related issues. She tweeted about it on April 25: “Not sure if this is really from Comelec, but its worth spreading.??? #Halalan2016 pic.twitter.com/KSSWGMAB7v”
