EcoWaste Coalition: Marcos Not A Hero!


We, environmental leaders and activists belonging to EcoWaste Coalition, lament and deplore the burial of dictator Ferdinand E. Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani last 18 November 2016.

The shameless burial of tyrant Marcos in the pantheon honoring the nation’s heroes and patriots is a gross disrespect and insult to the countless Filipino women and men of courage who toppled the dictatorship and restored our rights and freedoms as a sovereign people.

We reject the hero’s burial for despot Marcos who saddled our people with odious debts, looted our national coffers and engaged in environmentally destructive development projects, including the infamous Bataan Nuclear Power Plant.

As green advocates and defenders of our Mother Earth, we stand in unity with other sectors in upholding democracy, human rights, justice and truth and call upon the Filipino people to make a stand in pursuit of such values amid the challenging times.
