When the Student Edition is launched at the Philippine PEN (Poets & Playwrights, Essayists, Novelists) meet
The Student Edition of my book, Marcos Martial Law: Never Again is now out and can be bought at La Solidaridad in Padre Faura, Manila and, starting Monday, at the University of the Philippines Third World Studies Center. This is at the basement of Palma Hall (just ask the guard for directions).
The Introductory Price is only P300, more or less equivalent to a fastfood meal for two or a pre-paid mobile load. The Collector’s Edition is still available but you have to hurry because it’s not going to last.
Here is the Philippine Daily Inquirer notice about the launch of the Student Edition. I will try to be there much earlier.
Tomorrow, I will be a discussant during the last part of the historic Forum on Martial Law in UP Diliman on the topic, Moving Forward, What Lies Ahead.
The Forum is UP’s answer to Senator Bongbong Marcos’ challenge to historians to write the true history of Martial Law. The Third World Studies Center plans to make available online the various presentations.
I was gratified to see a lot of young people listening to the papers of the various presenters. They seem to be hungry for news about Martial Law. I was told that the 50 copies that I brought of the Student Edition were “sold out”, with more listing to buy copies.

There is a meme of me going around on Facebook that I am the daughter of Communist Party of the Philippines founding Chair Joma Sison. I have ignored it but then realized that if I did not answer it, it would stick like the big lie.
Well, if you want to know the truth, buy my book. Former Senator Rene Saguisag mentions my dad in the Foreword. Or ask Prof. Harry Roque or Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, who told me that she had bought the SCRA (Supreme Court Rulings and Annotations) from my dad. My dad was proud to have the distinction of being the “terror professor” in the UP College of Law.
I would guess that the tarring with the red brush is being made by Marcos trolloyalists.
