This video is part of ‘Noises and Voices of Memory and Dissent’, commemorating the Philippine experience of Martial Law together through art.
The Day of Remembrance was established in 2018 to commemorate members of the UP community who stood at the forefront of the resistance to Martial Law during the administration of President Ferdinand E. Marcos. The entire country was placed under martial rule by President Marcos on September 21, 1972.
The commemoration also serves to highlight the University’s role as a champion of academic freedom and as a beacon for hope and an advocate of human rights during the darkest days of democracy in the country.
The Day is intended to remember the sacrifices and legacy of UP heroes, the living and the fallen, and to impart their stories to younger generations of Iskolar ng Bayan and other patriotic Filipinos.
