NOMARCOS-GENERIC USPGG has joined a global network of Filipinos who have come together (across political and religious affiliations) to form the Kontra Libing Coalition, to protest against the current administration’s plans to bury the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr. at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani (Heroes’ Cemetery) on Sept. 18, 2016.

A global day of protest has been set on Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2016, 12:00 noon in front of Philippine Embassies and Consulates worldwide.

According to Republic Act 289, the law that created the Libingan, only those Presidents, soldiers, national artists and patriotic Filipinos who are “worthy of inspiring and being emulated by this generation and of generations still unborn” are to be allowed in the special burial grounds.
