Gaston Z. Ortigas Peace Institute

Memory, Truth-telling, and the Pursuit of Justice: A Conference on the Legacies of the Marcos Dictatorship is a volume of essays that recount the events and craft new narratives about the Martial Law period. Originally a conference held in September 1999, one of the main goals of the conference is to underscore the importance of preserving the lived-experiences of Martial Law survivors so as to continue the act of truth-telling that is instrumental to the pursuit of justice for the victims of the dictatorship.

Dark Legacy: Human Rights under the Marcos Regime

Alfred W. McCoy

Alfred McCoy’s Dark Legacy discusses the extent of human rights violations committed by the Marcos regime and its primary agents of terror, the Philippine military. It is in this work that McCoy records, based on primary sources and data, the regime’s human rights violations to 3,257 extra-judicial killings, 35,000 tortured, and 70,000 incarcerated. Aside from analyzing the regime’s record of terror and its implementation of torture methods, the research traces how the Philippine military–as the chief implementors of martial rule–was shaped by the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) resources.
