Filipinos demonstrate against dictatorship and martial law

The 45th anniversary of the declaration of martial law by the late dictator Ferninand Marcos on September 21 was used by activists to stage a major demonstration against the policies of the current government of President Duterte. All the major labour and progressive groups were present in these protests against the increasing repressive policies of the current Filipino government (see here, here, here and here). The massive toll that the murderous ‘War on Drugs’ has taken on working class communities and the declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao were the main issues for the demonstrations.

Stop the Killings! No to Martial Law! Release all political prisoners
