At noon today, November 18, 2016, Black Friday a historical event happens very discretely – the solemn military burial of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos who died in exile in Hawaii 27 years ago. His remains is preserved in a refrigerated glass coffin and transported by helicopter to the grounds of what looks like Villamor Air Base and transported by a funeral limousine to the Libingan ng mga Bayani shorty before the ceremony, attended by the Marcos family and selected crowd. The wooden coffin this time is flag-draped and placed on a horse-drawn carrier before being carried carefully by military pallbearers to the gravesite

Marcos again is Misinterpreted by Detractors
What would you think will happen if the said burial is widely announced and anticipated by the people? For sure, the Marcos supporters will be roaring at this time and will not allow any prostester to stop the burial. Do you think it will be safe? Politicians who described the ceremony as like a “thief in the night” only show that they are not capable of thinking ahead like the Marcoses for the welfare of the Filipinos.
Leni Robredo should check the facts right before saying anything.
The Vice President is surely very uninformed with what really happened during the martia law era. She should double check her facts like the former Vice President Jejomar Binay that what’s she’s advocating right now is wrong. She is siding with the culprits.
