#NeverAgain: Filipino activists mark 46th anniversary of martial law
September 21 marks the anniversary of the declaration of martial law in the Philippines.
46 years after the declaration of martial law, activists still recall the atmosphere in the Philippines during their youth.
About a dozen activists gathered outside the Philippine consulate in Los Angeles to remember, hoping to prevent another declaration of martial law.
They say with President Rodrigo Duterte’s opponents getting ousted and at times, imprisoned, they say is a familiar practice.
Earlier this year, Senator Antonio Trillanes visited these Filipinos, and now they worry the Duterte administration will carry out his arrest.
