MASO praises VP Sara for junking ‘historical revisionism’ on martial law, EDSA revolution

MANILA — Stressing that history should never be revised, the socialist humanist Maharlika Solidarity ( MASO) on Tuesday lauded Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte for shooting down insinuations that the Department of Education (DepEd) will revise the historical records on martial law and the EDSA revolution in 1986 that toppled down the 20-year regime of late strongman Ferdinand E. Marcos Sr.

“Bilang bata, hindi ko mabilang ang mga yellow pages sa directory ng telepono na ginupit ko para gawing confetti ng mga Yellow Friday Movement demonstrations sa pangunguna ni Soledad Duterte, ang aking yumaong lola, sa Davao City. Mukhang mas marami tayong ambag sa mga pagkilos laban sa Martial Law kaysa sa ilang maiingay na anti-Marcos ngayon,” the Vice President recalled.

Her late grandmother Soledad Roa Duterte led the Yellow Friday Movement demonstrations in Davao City.

Founded by a descendant of Lapu-Lapu on July 7, 2022 coinciding with the foundation anniversary of the Katipunan, MASO has expressed strong support for Inday Sara — monicker of the Vice President — for standing firm on the importance of “truth” about Martial Law and the EDSA Revolution in the country’s history.

VP Duterte on Tuesday junked rebranding claims of Martial Law historical records in schools, pointing out that the Department of Education (DepEd) “is not in the business of erasing these facts.”

She noted that the terms New Society or Bagong Lipunan and Martial Law are both historical facts, and have been used in DepEd textbooks since 2000 “within their proper context.”

“Bilang Education Secretary, wala po sa aking mandato ang pagsira sa integridad ng ating kasaysayan,” Inday Sara said. (ai/mtvn)
