UBC students outraged by Marcos burial

The UBC Philippine Studies Series will be hosting a Pabasa Para sa Mga Pinatay ni Marcos (Prayers for Those Killed by Marcos) on November 21, Monday, 5pm at the UBC Liu Institute for Global Issues. Please wear black and bring candles. Bring your outrage! Watch out for more details. #marcosNOTahero.

The traditional ‘Pabasa’ is usually held during the Lenten week in the Philippines but also during the nine days novena for the dead during a wake prior to burial. Marcos was buried yesterday (November 18, Philippine time) at the Heroes Cemetery despite widespread opposition and after the Philippine Supreme Court approved the burial in a controversial decision on November 8.

The announcement was posted by PhD Candidate/Researcher at University of British Columbia Dada Docot.
