Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses and Martial Law

On May 2016, the group “Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses and Martial Law” (CARMMA) published a short video on social media days before voting commenced. Various students and young voters are shown meeting face-to-face with victims of detention and torture under the government of Ferdinand Marcos Sr., the father of then Vice Presidential Candidate Ferdinand Marcos Jr. Noting that the full education of the regime has been lacking in schools, the video ends with a call for a petition to the Department of Education to bolster textbook content on the period.

His novel, Empire of Memory, is set in the Marcos-period focusing on two individuals who have been recently tasked to write/rewrite Philippine history.

Producing Ferdinand E. Marcos, the Scholarly Author

Miguel Paolo P. Reyes

Miguel Paolo Reyes’ article is an interesting study with compelling evidence proving that President Ferdinand E. Marcos’ books were not only ghost-written for him but also contained traces of self-plagiarism (e.g. content republished from previous works). Reyes also discusses how the Marcos books were widely distributed during its time and how, up to the present-day, these materials continue to fulfill the goals of the Marcosian propaganda machine.
