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.

Military Operations in the Mountainous Northern areas of Kalinga-Apayao and Cagayan intensified since 1982, with the Marag valley inhabited by the Isneg tribe declared a “No-man’s land” operation zone on March 1985. Several Human Rights Groups from Manila, Cagayan and Baguio would conduct a fact-finding mission to verify the aerial attacks and alleged military atrocities being reported by the Isneg People. Their report includes a situationer of the region and its people, a recording of bombing and strafing incidents across 8 months, and a list of “salvaging” incidents that took place over the same period. A copy of this report was archived by the Medical Action Group, and later Digitized with the help of the Rizal Library.
