For every stone, a true hero

What a great show of protest! Last Sunday, protestors (#bawatbato movement) of the planned burial of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos, almost three decades dead, at the Libingan ng mga Bayani trooped to the site supposedly reserved for him. There, one by one, they placed stones with the names of individual heroes and martyrs who lived and died fighting for the restoration of freedom.

They were in the thousands, these heroes and martyrs, known and unknown: farmers, workers, writers, lawyers, priests, nuns, bishops, teachers, health workers, students, politicians, public servants, intellectuals, men and women who took up arms. Many of their names are etched on the granite Wall of Remembrance at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani in Quezon City. As my own act of protest, I list here the names of the 268 (as of 2015) on The Wall, even as more will be added in the coming years.
