Francisco "Soc" Rodrigo

This book is mainly a collection of various poems authored by Francisco “Soc” Rodrigo – a critic and political detainee of the Martial Law Regime. Writing his first original poem while in detention in 1972, his succeeding literary works were deemed subversive. Persons holding copies of these – including Rodrigo – were put in prison. The book presents the author’s writings according to various subjects such as religion, nationhood, Love, Democracy, Dictatorship, the Military, Freedom, Politics and the Voting Ballot, History, and Morality.

Letter of Instruction No. 1

Ferdinand E. Marcos

Along with Proclamation 1081, President Marcos, signed “Letter of Instruction No. 1″ addressed to the Press Secretary and the Secretary of National Defense, pertaining to media operations. Effectively, the President instructed these bodies, stating…”you are hereby ordered forthwith to take over and control or cause the taking over and control of all such newspapers, magazines, radio and television facilities and all other media of communications, wherever they are, for the duration of the present national emergency, or until otherwise ordered by me or my duly designated representative.”

After declaring Martial Law, the very first letter of instruction President Marcos signed institutionalized censorship of all forms of media, curtailing the freedom of the press.
