Martial law remembered

vir2Martial law years from 1972 to 1986 had been regarded by many Filipinos as the darkest era of the Philippine government. On September 21, 1972, then President Ferdinand E. Marcos by stroke of his pen issued Proclamation No. 1081 placing the country under martial law.

To his critics, that was the day when our democracy died; that was the day when the media was gagged and that was the day when authoritarianism ruled the country.

What was the real reason why President Marcos proclaimed martial law? In a booklet entitled “Man Who Leads a Revolution Without Arms” which was lifted from an international magazine, Archipelago, it was written “…President Ferdinand E. Marcos proclaimed martial law in the Philippines, in response to a secessionist movement and rebellion conspired in by both leftist and rightist elements. Its immediate effect was to overturn what many, particularly in the West, used to call the “showcase of American democracy in the Far East.”
