What an outraged citizenry can do
I found your editorial, “Where’s the beef, Mr. Enrile?” (9/29/18), very interesting, especially the part that mentioned Delimondo as a brand owned by the Enrile family.
For those who lived through martial law, it is nice to know that we can somehow punish him for his attempt to revise history for whatever reason he might have.
The boycott of his family’s products reminds me of the boycott of San Miguel products at the height of the demonstrations against Marcos and his cronies in the mid-’80s.
I remember then how effective it was because when you entered restaurants, you could see that almost all the customers had non-San Miguel drinks.
We knew then that a lot of customers were cooperating. If the boycott had lasted longer, the next step would have been to boycott not only the company, but also the outlets selling their products.
Fortunately for San Miguel, the Marcoses were overthrown before it could reach this point.
Your editorial has shown us how an outraged citizenry can get back at Enrile.
May I suggest a research on what businesses he (as well as Marcos and other cronies) are engaged in, so that those who hate martial law can somehow punish them for what they have done to our country.
This way, we can get back at the Marcoses and their cronies.
