Commission on Human Rights; WiseOwl PH (Republishing as compilation on Youtube)

Originally a set of 12 videos published with different artistic styles under the Commission on Human Rights, the “HABILIN” short video series focuses on the stories of 9 persons who lived under the martial law regime: Margarita Gomez, Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, Coronacion Chiva, Lazaro Silva, Marciano Anastacio Jr., Elma Tangente, Lumbaya Gayudan, Nestor Principe, at Armando Palabay. Each account narrates how they acted in their own ways to resist the regime and fight for freedom, democracy and justice. These acts culminate in the People Power Revolution – one which is reflected upon over a call to pass-on the legacies of these stories to the next generation of Filipinos.
