An Excerpt from the book Marcos Martial Law: Never Again
By Raïssa Robles
To commemorate the death of Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. on August 21, 1983, I am posting here the link from our book Marcos Martial Law: Never Again.
I am grateful to our publisher, Filipinos for a Better Philippines, for allowing me to share with you this extract from the Collectors Edition.
You can request access to the download by clicking here.
Due to the thousands of requests that came in for earlier downloads, pls give me time to send you this new download link. I am especially referring to the download requests from abroad that come in late at night and after midnight.
Later I will also make available the poem that Ninoy Aquino wrote while in detention.
Out of stock pa rin sa mga NBS, even at Power Book. Baka raw this September.

DU30 is undermining his own Drug War!
As I said before, I support DU30’s war against drugs, corruption and poverty!
Most of those who voted for DU30 are behind him and will give him not only a second chance in case he falters but many more as long as he is sincere and authentic.
When DU30 first showed us his ‘Matrix’ which involves the Generals, most of us believed him for he was sincere and projected confidence that he can back-up the accusation with evidence. The accused reeked with stench that most of us are convinced that they are indeed guilty based on the information, reputation, and their extravagant lifestyle!
But DU30’s vindictiveness and retribution against D5 mar DU30’s authenticity and credibility! I knew about D5’s relationship with his driver and shared it here and even coined D5 as a ‘screwdriver’ in one of my pieces. But linking D5 in drugs is farfetch! We can call her horny, bitch, man-eater, but tagging her as one of the major personalities who made money deliberately and knowingly and as protector of druglords, is disingenuous! DU30 is dishonest in this regard and the public does not buy this demolition. It does not help DU30 convincing the public when DU30 shows he is suffering from an advanced stage of foot and mouth disease.
If DU30 wants to regain the trust of the Filipinos, he should immediately desist persecuting D5 and not make a martyr out of her. He should also stop unnecessarily debating Sereno and SC about law. DU30 should know that law is not his strong subject and should leave it to the judiciary and the legislature! DU30’s expertise is in the executive for he has proven himself as master executioner! A smart reader of my piece knows that I wrote the previous sentence with pun intended!
DU30 might consider himself as a demigod like Achilles, but he should be aware that like Achilles, he has a weakness. If Samson had Delilah, DU30 has Liela and five times more potent!
DU30 should avoid confronting and fighting women, especially at the caliber of D5 and Carpio-Morales. These women are Man-eaters and surely DU30 being half-god will be devoured.
Unlike Delilah who cut Samson’s hair, Leila will start with her favorite part and one bite is enough to make DU30 a eunuch.
From demigod to half-a-man gnawed by a man-eater is not a legacy to be proud of!
My advice to DU30 is not to fall into a trap that he himself created!
DU30 should realize that he could win the war against drugs, corruption and poverty, but he will be a sure failure on his war against women!
How could he win his war on drugs when his intel is not at all intellegent? Pls. refer to Raissa’s new article about a call center agent incorrectly included on the so called Drug List.
Marcos Martial Law: Never Again
Hontiveros gives students ‘Never Again’ books
Sen. Risa Hontiveros distributes “Never Again” books to public senior high school students, reminding the youth not to repeat the mistakes committed during martial law.
Pa excuse lang …
i don’t know whats happening na sa bansa natin. Have you heard?
Deniece Cornejo, itinalagang youth ambassador
A dirty old man with rape fantasies and a cheap model who is a rape fantasist. The role models for the philippines!
Both their little brains are between their legs.
Duterte is a gift from the comedy gods. A joke which just keeps on giving.
Duterte’s oft used and only pick up line “do you like durian? Would you like to share your durian with me?”
No wonder he is an angry old fart after so much rejection.
He can’t laugh people into bed, and would only make people laugh at him in bed.
The only hump he would get is if he rode a camel.
“A man was riding through the desert on his camel. He started to feel the urge. With no women around, the man turned to his camel.
When he tried to position himself to have sex with his camel, the camel ran away. The man ran to catch up to the camel and got back on and started to ride again. Soon he was feeling the urge to have sex again so once again he turned to his camel. The camel refused and started running away again. So, he caught up to it again and go on it again.
Finally after riding the camel through the whole desert the man came to a road.
There was a broken down car with three beautiful girls sitting in it. He went up to them and asked the women if they needed any help.
The girls said, “If you fix our car we will do anything you want.” The man luckily knew a thing or two about cars and fixed it in a flash. When he finished the girls asked, “How could we ever repay you mister.” After thinking for a short while he replied, “Could you hold my camel?” “
It is too bad Duterte is an old fart who loves Durian scented vajayj. Too bad too that only babies can be infected by LADY ZIKA. If matured pruny horny man like him that even dead meat like the Australian woman is satisfying, then woe to him to have welcome to ZIKALAND.
It may not be long before he kills all the addict bums and here’s another pestilence he and the other govt killer supporters may not be ready to entertain nor push away the lure of the offending morsel of fun-tasy…
LOOK HERE.. A God sent pestilence or a gift ?
BOYS, hold your camels! The durian is an irresistible bait, at your own risks, but you are not babies , so you may be safe, :)
Vhong navarro is reportedly being groomed as Deniece’s assistant
Kaya pala in the 60s merong TV ad ” I’d walk a mile for a Camel” ….si Du30 pala yon…hehehe
camel must have kicked him, kaya ganyan si digong, may brain damage at sira na ang isip. midnight in the oasis, take your camels to bed, at mahilig pang kumanta. sana sumali siya sa the voice. incidentally, magaling mandura yong camel, always hit their target, baka naduraan si diong, kaya medyo droppy ang left eye.
“The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth”
A matrix has been produced linking rude duterte to the ‘flat earth society’, ‘friends of Idi amin’, and ‘naughty nuns appeal’
Asked for comment duterte said:
“You cannot outrun a bullet.
In any country there must be
people who have to die. They
are the sacrifices any nation has
to make to achieve law and
‘His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular’
“(S)he’s made fools of the police.
I disagree, they were fools long before (s)he came along”
My moderated comment at # 21
Has anybody seen it, Hy Brasil Sinking? I guess Atlantis maybe just around Asia and surrounding islands :)
Truly, with how the country is going , I am surprise the netizens are very very patient , indifferent and apathetic, hmm, reading on my FB newsfeed , the cheering and applause are non stop, one says the US contra killing groups are tukmol, what’s tukmol? thanks!
Tukmol think means no effect..but who cares, the important thing is we get our voices heard…and keep our faith up. We’ve been through this road before and somehow we always happen to be in the right side of history. It’s because we cling to lasting values.Nothing can destroy values like freedom, respect for human dignity, care for the weak in our midst. When I try to recall the Marcos years parang hindi tatakbo sa Hawaii, napakatibay, hawak lahat ..yet bumagsak din. Kaya fascinated ako dito kay Digong lung papano ang pagbagsak nitong matandang “shrivelled prune” na ito…hehe…everyday something new happens to him.I get the feeling hindi ito aabotan ng Pasko at bibitawan to ng Tsina. Hehehe
2 Things uncovered by the Delima Senate inquiry and the Supreme Court
Had there been no Delima inquiry we would have not the following today:
1. Murder committed by Bato’s men on the Bertes killing.
Cannot the Supreme Court be asked to review Du30’s contradroga campaign to prevent more murders.
2. Bato’s admission that those named and shamed are “wala pang ebidensya”
Is not this defamation, the basis of unjust accusation orevention , guaranteed by the Constitution?
Because if the SC cannot intervene then Du30 and his Office is indeed guilty of crimes again humanity and in complete violation of the Constitution.
Because if no one can queston especially these killings, would that not be considered a State policy, ground for crimes against humanity?
The SC is not a trier of facts but acts on filed complaints based on the merits of evidence presented. I presume you’re not a member of the famous Canadian Mounted Police on horseback who are busy only during the short summer when the grounds are free of ice and snow – and therefore has ample time to visit your poor country and file a complaint in the SC against PDU30 for crimes against humanity/defamation/war on drug traffickers.
Hi Kalahari,I get offense that you say that , we from Canada are not blogging here to kill our time. We visit the blog because we care, if you do not value our contributions as Canadians it is your problem .We don’t care about you or your idol Digong but we are the minority who want our voices heard and because we are one of those sending our remittances to our poor families in the PH. We are not PH citizens anymore but our blood is the same as yours and the other human race. We are browns but we are carrying our dignity and empathy for the poor citizens of the country and the whole word as well, because lives everywhere matter.
Why attack Canadadry, why attack us Canadians, being sarcastic as you are? You don’t know how hard our life here in the past, present and maybe even in the future.
Unless , you have lived here , you won’t be so closed minded as you are now that you are daring us to file complaints,if Sereno, the UN and other foreign ambassadors to the country can’t do anything to stop this lunacy and carnage then you must know that we just have a small voice, what we have is just a little flame of spirit, nothing else like the poor Ph, we are poor but we survived our poorness even “only during the short summer when the grounds are free of ice and snow ”
Come to Canada, and feel how to be one , maybe you will open your mind and see what we are seeing. Believed me being on a different land gives you a bigger perspective of how to view the right and wrong, differences between rich and poor that only self respect and being tough will make us persevere, are you tough? Come, live in my house free accommodation and see if we merit at least your respect as your hardworking kababayans..
We don’t need your sarcasm , for we are not the enemy, we are not on the narco list , but maybe when we land , we might find our names on the list , isn’t that scary ? Because we don’t have the FAMOUS Canadian Mounted Police TO FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS, isn’t that a bit ironic?
My sincere apology @ Netty. I really didn’t know that you’re from Canada. I can’t see any sarcasm on my short comments to @Canadadry who said “because if no one question especially these killings, would that not be considered a State policy, ground for crimes against humanity.
A great majority of those alleged victims of EJK are either criminals, pushers and drug lords who happen to be in the radar of PDu30, Gen. Bato and those Ninja cops who want to eliminate any past connection to recycled drugs.
Those law-abiding citizens not connected whatsoever to illegal drug are wishing the administration to succeed except those, from the start of the presidential campaign until now, are die-hard yellowtards and abhor all dutertards
So sorry @ Netty – my response to you is under moderation. Nevertheless, my sincere apology to you.
It’s OK, Kalahari.Peace yoh. Sometimes we just feel like easing off some steam fairly.
And also we can become silly at times, because these so much killings are so frustrating for an empath like me.
I would like to help the govt’ if I could in my little ways but some of his doings are just too funny like placing Deniece to a role that the youth are supposed to emulate? Oh, please. Wala na ba talagang matino dyan o joke na naman ito. Really comical.
Anyway, there is a song used for Australian subways/ train commuters that plays along for every ride reminding people to be careful and that suicide is not worth it…. hahhaha esp without insurance, absolutely for the insurance industry.
My point is, why can’t this be put on public trains or in kiosks to play ?
The song is titled “Dumb ways to die “, a lyric goes like this
Search it, it is nice.
Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die ( in the PH :)
Invite a psycho-killer inside
Scratch your drug dealer’s brand new ride
Take your helmet off in outer space
Use your clothes dryer as a hiding place
It is a catchy song and guess whom I learn it from? From my super singer 4 year old apo and I thought it is not appropriate but I realized it is …..
Dumb Ways to Die is an Australian public service announcement campaign by Metro Trains in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, to promote rail safety. The campaign video went viral through sharing and social media starting in November 2012. Wikipedia
Those who can play with the lyrics can replaced it relating with getting rid of drugs or be killed, or just the same, patay din.
Excerpts from Bobit Avila’s column @ Philstar today
There are 24 senators and it just gets my gall that the news reports on the on-going Senate investigation on the alleged extra-judicial killings are focused only as if this is a personal squabbles between Senator Leila De Lima and Pres. Rodrigo Duterte. First of all, with no less than Pres. Duterte accusing Sen. De Lima of immorality with her driver and her possible links in the illegal drug trade, it means that she has lost her moral ascendancy even to be at the senate hearing.
The least we expect from her is to resign from the Senate Committee or even resign as a senator especially now that Pres. Duterte has clearly pointed out that the Bilibid drug matrix has Sen. De Lima playing a major role. The Senate hearings also showed that Sen. De Lima was using a witness whose father was killed last June 20, 2016. Come now…wasn’t she still the Secretary of Justice when this crime was committed? If this Senate hearing was to investigate the killings under the Duterte administration, Sec. De Lima apparently brought along a wrong witness to pin down Duterte!
Meanwhile, Sen. Panfilo Lacson declared that the Senate should not get in the way of Pres. Duterte’s campaign against illegal drugs. Sen. Lacson believes that either the CHR or the DOJ should be tasked to investigate the cases of extra-judicial killings… not the Senate. For many times I have been at odds with Sen. Lacson…but this is one statement that he made that I fully concur.
Therefore we must never lose the momentum that has happened in the war against illegal drugs. For one, the crime rate has gone down… but unfortunately, the Human Rights Advocates, especially those rapporteurs from the UN have not followed strict protocol and are merely using the news in gathering their reports against the Duterte administration. They should show to the nation that the UN is also transparent.
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Sandra Cam threatens to expose more dirt on De Lima, http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/809826/sandra-cam-threatens-to-expose-more-dirt-on-de-lima
Can SC include ‘the real story’ why Marine Lieutenant Colonel Ferdinand Marcelino & Yan Yi Shou whose case was dismissed by DOJ?
Marcelino and yan yi shou were arrested in a raid in a house in Sampaloc in January 2016 where P380-million worth of illegal drugs were confiscated.
The DOJ later dismissed that case against them for lack of evidence in a 15-page DOJ resolution written by Senior Deputy State Prosecutor Theodore Villanueva (PDI 6/21/16)
Isn’t the P380-million worth of drugs not sufficient evidence or did it disappear like magic? Calling PDU30
drill down says
merci hides in different forms.
What:’s it like governing with killing in your mind
30 years as Mayor and Bato as his executioner, it must really be addicting when one orders the killing of people. There comes a point when the city just becomes too confing an area to indulge in something that in their mind has to be done on a daily basis.
Given the opportunity as the country’s President. Du30 must have salivated with the opportunity of a bigger arena for his favorite past time. We got a glimpse of this urge to kill when Bato was asked by Trillanes “while we’re having this inquiry today are you stopping the operations?”. Bato in all casualness replied ” ah no Sir this will continue because president has given us only 3 to 6 months”.
Parang paperwork lang ang deadline, not killing the ndefenseless poor.
Siguro if instead of the poor alleged druggies nag focus na lang sila sa Abu Sayaf marami pang nagcelebrate but then pwedeng lumaban ang Abu Sayaf. But like true Murderers, it’s better for them to surprise victims who can’t fight.
Governing by murdering aah what a painful experience this poor country has to go through.
