Marcos sins, victims’ woes to be taught in schools

By |


JAILED TWICE One of the victims of martial law abuses, Carmencita Florentino, 64, is shown peering through the screen door of her home in a poor area of Tatalon, Quezon City. More than 9,000 victims stand to receive compensation from the $246-million fund the government recovered from the Marcos wealth. Florentino was jailed twice, in 1977 and 1978. Bullit Marquez/AP

Never again.

So the nation will remember not to forget, a bill that recognizes for the first time that the Ferdinand Marcos dictatorship committed atrocities against Filipinos also mandates the teaching in schools of the abuses inflicted on its opponents and the heroism of those who fought the regime.

The bill, ratified by the two chambers of Congress on Monday and awaits the signing into law by President Aquino, creates the Human Rights Violations Victims’ Memorial Commission and lays down guidelines for monetary reparations to the victims from a P10-billion fund out of the ill-gotten wealth recovered from Marcos.

The memorial commission is tasked with collaborating with the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) “to ensure that the teaching of martial law atrocities, the lives and sacrifices of [victims of human rights violations] in our history are included in the basic, secondary, and tertiary education curricula.”

The memorial commission will also establish, restore, and preserve a memorial, museum, library and compendium in honor of the victims as outlined in the policy statement of the bill, called The Human Rights Victims Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013.

The bill states: “It is hereby declared the policy of the state to recognize the heroism and sacrifices of all Filipinos who were victims of summary execution, torture, enforced or involuntary disappearance and other gross human rights violations committed during the regime of former President Ferdinand E. Marcos covering the period from Sept. 21, 1972, to Feb. 25, 1986, and restore the victims’ honor and dignity.”

The memorial commission will be run by a board of trustees led by the Commission on Human Rights chair, and composed of the secretary of education, heads of the National Historical Commission, the CHEd, the National Commission on Culture and the Arts, and the University of the Philippines-Diliman Main Library.

Roll of victims

The bill also creates the Human Rights Victims’ Claims Board, an independent and quasi-judicial body tasked with receiving, evaluating, processing and investigating the applications for monetary compensation.

The board is also called upon to draw up a “Roll of Human Rights Victims,” regardless of whether they sought reparation or not, to be displayed in government offices. A compendium of the victims’ sacrifices will also be prepared and posted on the Internet, the bill states.

The President will choose the nine members of the board, and human rights organizations may submit a list of nominees.

The board must complete its work within two years from the effectivity of implementing rules and regulations concerning the measure.

A martial law victim may file an application for reparation with the board within six months from the effectivity of the implementing rules, according to the bill. Failure to do so within that period will be deemed a waiver.

For the victims who are deceased, incapacitated, or missing due to enforced disappearance, their legal heirs or representatives may file an application for reparation on their behalf.

Any application may be opposed if the challenge is filed within 15 days from publication of the official list of eligible claimants. Those found by the board to have filed fraudulent claims will be prosecuted.

Conclusive presumption

The bill also states that the 9,539 plaintiffs in the litigation against the Marcos estate in a Hawaii court will be given the conclusive presumption that they are human rights violations victims.

To be given the same presumption are those victims recognized by the Bantayog ng mga Bayani Foundation.

In determining compensation, the board will use a system assigning points—from one to 10—to each claimant depending on the severity of the abuse suffered.

Victims who died or disappeared and are still missing will be given 10 points; those who were tortured and/or raped or sexually abused will be given six to nine points; and those who were detained, three to five points.

To be awarded one to two points are those who suffered any force or intimidation leading to their voluntary exile abroad; and those who suffered force, intimidation or deceit causing the unjust or illegal takeover of a business, confiscation of property, detention of owners, or deprivation of livelihood, including those caused by the Marcoses and their immediate relatives and cronies.

To be given the same points are those who were kidnapped or whose children were exploited; those who suffered sexual offenses while detained or the subject of military and police operations, and those who suffered similar or analogous abuses.

Compensation will be made within 30 days after the board approves with finality each eligible claim and publishes it.

    “Compensation bill also ensures remembrance of MARCOS REGIME ATROCITIES”

    This is too much…compensation plus atrocities.
    Whereas, we have not received any compensation from the Japanese much more remembrance of their Japanese Regime Atrocities.

    In short, we are good only to condemn the acts of our own which was done for our own good.

      Those who were fair to Marcos said history would be kinder to Marcos.  Years after his death, no less than Sen. Salonga and Gen. Corpus admitted that Marcos was not behind the Plaza Miranda bombing but Joma Sison’s NPA.  Soldiers accused of killing the late Ninoy one by one confessed that Marcos had no hand in the assassination but the Aquinos refused to re-investigate.  Why would they?  If the truth comes out, Cory’s presidency would be illegal and illegitimate because it was Ninoy’s assassination that triggered Marco’s ouster.

    Such ridiculous and stupid idea will create precedence.  We might as well teach the sins of GMA who was worse than Marcos.  We might as well teach the sins of the Catholic priests and her leaders who meddled in the political and economic affairs of the government.  We might has well teach the sins of Cardinal Sin who used the church to oust two duly elected Presidents.  We might has well teach the grand conspiracy of the Catholic Church, Yellow Brigade, Business elite, ambitious police and military officials, Communists and leftist groups, US-CIA in ousting Marcos and Erap.  Take note the same groups.  It was not coincidence.

    • Karabukov

      Well, why not? The idea is to put both the good and the bad in our history in their proper perspective. You think GMA was worse than Marcos? I’d say that GMA was bad enough but worse than Marcos is taking it a bit too far. And as bad as Marcos was, he was no Hitler. You want to “teach” the “sins of Cardinal Sin”? You have to be prepared to make your case against contrary accounts and opinions. Some things we do need to know to go forward and avoid the pitfalls, but truths about the past need to be verified and re-verified. History, like current news need to be examined and re-examined in the light of truth, as opportunity, appropriateness and balance allow, but knowledge is, I am certain you will grant, preferable to say the least, to ignorance.

      • FORPNOY

        I agree. Everything that happened in the past should be verified, and should it be placed in our history, it must not be written with biased hands. Only then will the Philippines move forward. 

      • Karabukov

        All history, like news, have bias.

        But some are more biased, one way or another, than others.

        Which is why democracy, for all its faults, is better than all its alternatives, where your information comes only from official sources.

      • Noel

        First of all, why single out Marcos.  Cory’s corruption (not necessarily she but her people) surpassed Marcos’ 20 years in only six years.  Why not also teach about her good looking brother Peping, the head of then Kamag-anak Inc.  An old poor congressman (De Guzman) even became the fall guy in the gun smuggling (guns owned by Peping).  His wife Tingting who’s running for senator was called “White Lady”.  As for Cardinal Sin, his name already shows the many sins he committed.  He used to be a close friend of then Imelda Marcos.  One video showed him laughing and clapping while Imelda was dancing in one lavish party.  For some reasons, Sin became a bitter enemy of the Marcoses in the end.  Sin helped (better term is conspired) in ousting Marcos and Erap for corruption.  Yet, he was silent not even a word of criticism against GMA’s nine years of worse corruption.  Before his death, GMA gifted him with a diamond ring on his birthday.  One time (one of the last), FG Mike donated P1M check to Sin.  All these were reported in the media without any denial.  Besides, I myself had first hand knowledge about the whole thing.

      • Karabukov

        The Marcos dictatorship was a significant part of recent history. You do have a point in that it has to be fair and balanced. Even the re-telling of history has to evolve as differing opinions and accounts arise and the struggle for balance continue. But even so, you seem to lack depth in your very opinionated post, as if your facts confirm your points conclusively. Even your “first hand knowledge” a good accounting of which is all that can save your credibility but which you only claim to be so, is just one blind man’s knowledge of what an elephant looks like.

IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOUR GENERATION. be sensitive! DON’T LET ME LOOK DOWN ON YOU. YOU’VE BEEN DOING SO FINE FOR THE PHILIPPINES, BUT WHY NOW THIS? (if ever he passes this though)

    • JK1000

      Idiot ! Stop your stupidity. Young people needs to know why the country suffer now because of the evil deeds done by the marcosses and their cronies. Before Ferdinand Marcos came to power the Philippines was ranked as number two in Asia,after they were forced out from power the country was in despair beyond repair. The NO SHAME Marcos family pocketed most of the money and left the country with $32 billion in debt which until today we’re still paying for it.

      • FORPNOY

        He didn’t left the country. He was forced out of it. Debt remained to be unpaid because his projects were stopped. With the projects, the government could have paid it in 5 years time. What the young people need to know is that corruption is bad and that we should respect human rights. But we can do this without pinpointing particular persons as if we have not commited any sin or so. Let’s be open-minded, sabi nga ni Pnoy.

    there one thing more i need to clarify:

    the people from manila are the ones closest to the media, historians, news, and all things high. but have you ever thought about what the other provinces feel about him? Manila is just a percent of the population of the Philippines. The other provinces were benefiting from Marcos’ reforms. But just because he decentralized his attention from manila to the other places, you feel bad about it? 

    Human right violations? There are a lot more powerful criminals and corrupt officials violating human rights in the Philippines, more than what Pres. Marcos did. But why is Marcos the only one? Why are the sins of the past mayor of my province not get known to everyone in the Philippines?

    I admit I really feel bad about this bill. What I wanted to say that this bill would just break the Philippines into groups again. Hindi po ba sabi ng pangulong noynoy aquino na ang susi sa kaunlaran ay pagkakapit bisig patungo sa tuwid na daan? Unity, diba?

      As long as there are mentally deprived individuals like you, brainwashed to the core, blaming everyone else except the guilty, the corruption you speak about will be allowed to fester and survive in the Philippines. Without doubt, there is still much corruption to eradicated, in different forms, committed by different groups, but if one can not realized the brutality of the Marcos regime against its opposition, then it is probably because you were part of that regime. Marcos dragged the Nation into the gutter morally and physically.  His greed and laws protected the feudal oligarchy, stunting development and real modernization, while his flimsy social policies left a population of women working in brothels, and infrastructure laughable to any decent standards, etc. Just look at he sanitary health of the cities, regardless where you are in the Philippines. Open sewers, dilapidated roads, bridges that collapse after every storm, so on and on. That corrosive mindset has been carried on by his predecessors, using ‘communist fear’ mongering to justify their authority, merely to plunder the Nation further. There is finally a change towards more civil, open, and equal  policies, something which seems to frighten the Marcos lackeys most.

      Na nangyari kahit 7 beses tayong giniba ng kudeta…ng 12 taon ng misadministrations.  Ng pagtatangka ng mga revisionists na sirain ang tunay na nangyari sa ating kasaysayan.

      I-analyze natin ang pangalan mo — ipagpalagay lang na Br is break…AX is the word itself…82, the year when martial law was reported to have been lifted,  Hindi naman totoong the AX was broken in1982.  Tuloy pa in ang martial law.

    This is 27 years late, thus it’s a milestone that congress finally passed this bill. This bill is a must considering the Marcoses/cronies efforts to revised history & entrenched themselves in power again. Never again! Unless the Filipinos learn how to hold accountable those who abused us (Marcos,Enrile,Estrada,GMA, etc), this country will never move forward.

        In fairness, Marcos did reorganize the executive department of the country. The Regions of the Philippines as we see today are brainchilds of Marcos. As well as the Quezon Memorial Circle, Phil Heart Center, San Juanico Bridge, etc. He was the president who knew that to be a developed country, we needed to enhance infrastructure and defense. Marcos was truly a brilliant president, yun nga lang, greed for power came over him.

    Philippine History
    bakit ang Marcos Regime lang ang pag usapan?
    pag usapan ang lahat ng mga administration para tunay na history.

    kung convinced ang Aquino Administration sa kademonyohan ng Marcos Era, eh, buhay na buhay ang mga kapamilya ni Marcos, pati ang kanyang Martial Law Administrator.
    bakit hindi sila kasuhan ng husto para mapa kita sa madlang bayan na tutuo itong mga proposal

    kung seryoso ang Aquino Administration to expose the evils of the Marcos Regime, why not have the case of the assasination be investigated with honest to goodness investigation and tell the Filipino people who really was behind his killing.

    kawawa naman ang nga sundalo na kinulong, eh, ang pagka alam nila, they would provide security for Ninoy, tapos, kulongan pala ang kanilang puntahan.

    Peace everybody. I think by reading a lot of the comments here, it is clear our youth have not been taught the history of the Marcos regime. I was personally surprised one day when, in my office, my younger colleagues in their early 30s, said that “they really liked the Marcos regime”. Mind you, these are highly educated lawyers, economists and MBAers from Ateneo, La Salle, UST, etc. These officemates were against corruption during GMAs time – i.e. if they were old enough in 1986, I am sure they would be in yellow hanging out in EDSA. Our generation has failed to teach history to the next gen. I was 19 when EDSA 86 happened. I guess it’s hard to describe how it feels “not to be free” to others. It’s a feeling in your everyday life. You have this hate for the regime. You are terrified of the military and police. Like going through a checkpoint of the police constabulary at 12 midnight. You are alone and there is this real fear that the 4 cops checking you and your car could easily plant something. All the news in the papers and TV are always pro-regime and are lies, lies, lies (that’s why I still do not buy Manila Bulletin, thank God wala na Daily Express). Note that there was no Internet and mobile phones then, just imagine if all the info you get to read are lies. Saying something bad about the regime can literally get you killed. Kung Marcos time today, a lot of the bloggers here would be in Crame already, in cuffs, no kidding. You know someone, who knows someone, who was tortured, kidnapped or killed by the government (I personally think the 10,000 human rights victims is an understatement, there were more). You hear about the rapes, thievery, murders, abuses, tortures (like the aircon torture – the police take off your shirt, whether you are a man or a woman, and ask you to stand in front of an aircon for 6 hours) You are not at peace “in a national way” (again hard to describe) – its a feeling the North Koreans, Burmans and those of the Arab Spring have felt or still feel to this day. I am not really sure how all this can be taught in the classroom but it would be a start.

        Naunang nagising si Tabako, na nag-alsa, supported by aound 300 soldiers in Camp Crame.  At the call of Cardinal Sin, people came to support the renegades in Camp Crame.  Johnny had no better choice, dahil isusunod na raw yata siya ng regime.  From Camp Aguinaldo, he crossed to Camp Crame, dahil nasa Camp Crame ang suporta ng taong bayan.  Si Tabako protected the newsly installed democracy headed by the snap elections winner, President Cory, in all 7 coup d-etats, and other patriotic soldiers and general, like General Biazon, etc. President Cory’s honesty would have sufficed para umangat ang Pilipinas dahil suportado ng malalaki at mayayamang bansa.  Maganda na rin sana sa panahon ni Tabako, pero kulang ang 6 years, para maiahon ang bansa sa kumunoy ng martial law, aggravated by the series of coup d’etats

        After then, ngayon lang tayo uli nagkaroon ng Presidente hindi kulimbat.  In less than 3 years, consistent ang transformation ng bansa.  We are now beginning to reap what we failed after 1986, dahil sa kudeta at sa kulimbat administrations.

    Indeed, never again should we forget the dark days of Martial Law,  which brought this country down to it’s knees and earned the shameful monicker “The Sick Man of Asia” during the Marcos era. It is only but  proper that  we should always remind the present and future generations of one of the darkest days in this country’s history so that history will not repeat itself. This is the least that we can do for the people and heroes who gave up their lives in fighting  the dictatorship so that freedom will always prevail in this country. Also, never again should a member of the Filipino race grace the pages of  the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s biggest thief of all.

      The “Sick Man of Asia”… was he also the “Richest Man in Asia” …, the immediate aftermath of Ninoy’s expose, was first the ‘suspension of the writ of habeas corpus’ , then the declaration of ‘martial law’, then, the abolition of the Constitutional Commission that was drafting the new Constitution, then the conversion to Parliamentary form of government, then designation of the country’s first and only Prime Minister, then the perpetuation to stay in power, much…much beyond the 8 years maximum allowed by that Constitution?

  • watsupdoc

    Let us be fair.  If we have to teach our children how bad Marcos was,  we should also teach them how greedy the Aquinos were by designing a CARP law so they could keep their 6,000 hectares Hacienda Luisita for almost 4 decades while the rest of our countrymen’s lands were confiscated by the government and paid them poor sums in installment payable for 10 long years.  And when finally the Supreme Court decided to award the Aquino lands to the farmers, the vindictive son of the former President managed to kick out its Chief Justice.

    What bill are they going to pass about the construction of the Marhalika Highway from Luzon to Mindanao, The Heart Center, The Ambitious construction of the Leyte Samar bridge(The San Juanico Bridge), The mactan Bridge, and many more where no other politician can do the same? Also the first 3 years tranquility of our country during Martial Law, it was but unfortunate after that 3 years of peace and tranquility Imelda and her cohorts made 360 degree turn about its purpose. I would not think the Aquinos can do the same. The only thing I see in the Aquinos was protecting the Hacienda Luicita and putting Gloria and Corona to jail which is a very easy accomplishment by any president.

      Huwag mong ipagyabang ang kunwari mga cream projects ni Marcos dahil ang lahat nyan ay loans sa world bank kaya lomobo ang utang natin. Dahil sa financial instability sa Marcos regime ay biglang bumaba ng bumaba ang halaga ng piso kayat napilitang umalis sa ibang bansa ang maraming filipino para lang matustusan ang ating panganga ilangan. Noong panahon ni Marcos, maraming kababaihan natin ay nag DH kahit pa mga college graduate at hindi na mabilang ang mga abuso na dinanas sa ating mga kababaihang DH sa ibang bansa. Ang mga paghihirap at kalupitan na dinanas ng mga pilipino ay nag uugat sa Martial Law.

Ano kaya ang mangyayari sa mga apo sa school, makipag-away dahil sa hiya o hindi na lang pumasok? Tsk, tsk, hindi ito magugustuhan nila Bong2, Maria Imee, Maria Irene at ang Ninang kong Meldy. Pati na rin ang kamag-anakan sa Leyte at Ilocos Norte.

      Same goes with the Aquino’s for being tagged as collaborator with the Japanese during WW ll and Hacienda Luisita issues from land reform to killing of farmers. Also, with corruption of GMA and abuse of authority under ERAP administration.

      It also include the “real” intention of these activists and their groups such as NDF, LFS, KM, etc. Can they denied that they are not a communist and have the intention to disrupt the government to gain public support? Today’s student should learn both sides of the coin.

    Past is past.  What kind of values do we impart to them by teaching those things? Hope they focus more on how to uplift the education system – values, teaching, teachers’ benefits, etc…

    Never again is still a dream!  In fairness, Imelda, Imee, and Bongbong are performing well in their region. 

    What about the other politicians?  You have the goons, guns, and gold all over town.  You have the dynasties.  You have the sons and daughters of politicians who live in mansions on top of the hills.  You have the private armies of the politicians.  You have the corrupt politicans that may have looted the provincial treasury.  You have the political families who run the fiefdoms like it is their own kingdom.  Never again is just a voice in the wilderness.  We don’t want them but their constituents keep on voting for them.

    Too late, too little!  We all know what happened during the MARCOS era, it was the Golden age of the Philippines!  Philippines was 2nd to Japan that time.  Haisst, itong mga YELLOW ZOMBIES na ito, may masabi lang sa history, mga bugoy..

    Maraming ipinagawa si Marcos na hanggang ngayon ay ating napapakinabangan ng mga Pilipino.
    LRT, MRT, NLEX,SLEX, San Juanico, Folks Arts, Marikina Flood way, San Juanico Bridge, Batasan, Manila Bay reclamation, Bliss Project etc etc.

    Kaya dumami ang population itinigil ang PopCom ni Macoy, kaya dumami ang squatter nawala ang National Housing Authority, kaya nawala ang bigas, nawala ang Masagana 99 at naging Subdvision etc etc.
    Ano ang naipagawa ng sumunod na Presidente, wala. Maintenance na lang ng mga ipinagawa ni Macoy.

    Ang mga sumunod na Presidente, pulos salita na lang….pulos economic growth, pulos SWS survey etc etc.
    In short, Theory President not Action President.

    Ang nakikita lahat ng masama hindi yon mga kabutihan nagawa.

    What’s the use of teaching and teaching the evils the Marcoses
    did, when the glaring fact and there for all to see reality is that the 
    survivors of Ferdinand Marcos shameful regime went on to live like royalty and
    never got punished for their crimes and abuses of power and vast
    unprecedented ill gotten wealth and loot, which set the example
    for subsequent plunderers? 

    It’s not and never too late to demand return of everything that the Marcoses stole and 
    put the Marcos heirs and conspirators and cronies in prison.
    You don’t even have to teach the history when everybody can 
    see what happens to them evil-doers and oppressors. 

    • mrcrabdribble

      Good point. But you must realize that one, major reason they (Marcoses) are where they are now is precisely because this generation was not ‘educated’ on the history of the Marcos rule. The youth voted them in office mostly unaware of the awful past of this clan. Better late than never to begin informing our children now of the tyrannical rule of Ferdinand Marcos.

    walang kwenta……walang pagkakaiba si pinoy sa kanyang ina……puro paghihiganti ang nasa isip……..dapat unahin nya ang mga kabalbalang nangyayari ngayon sa senado…hindi yung luma na kakalkalin pa……di naman totoo lahat…….mas maganda pa ang buhay sa at ligtas ang mga matitinong tao sa panahon ni apo Ferdie……….

  • Touch_Me_, Nuts!

    NEVER AGAIN!, cried one of my Filipino workers.  He was crying to get his job back for a stupid plant violation. He now cannot send his son to college. NEVER AGAIN!, cries the Filipino for the alleged Marcos-era violations.  New people in government were installed, the country is still in shambles, and even worse. That’s what we get for hasty, and misplaced emotions. NEVER AGAIN!, we should cry to fix our unproductive mindset and unwholesome attitudes. What this country needs is a prudent and credible dictator to weed out the deleterious influence in us. Could that be possible ever?
