However, Bernardo clarified that it will be a peaceful activity and definitely not a rally against the President. It is an anti-Marcos burial assembly and some of the expected attendees are Duterte supporters.
She called on “to let go of their political color” by wearing a white shirt, something to signify unity and humility. She also urged that children will be brought by their parents so they will be knowledgeable of the dark days during Marcos’ regime.
Meanwhile, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano insisted that Marcos be buried in Ilocos Norte, the dictator’s home province. “I’m clamouring for the Marcoses to make the sacrifice themselves and have a very good, decent, meaningful burial there in Ilocos. I hope that the Marcoses would see what is best for the country and not what’s best for the family,” he said. ASCS
