Debunking the #Ateneo's pompous statements about Martial Law 'revisionism'

Image
"We are not blind to the darkness" and our eyes are wide open to the light!
(an answer to the Ateneans)"We must start with the truth." And so you pompously declared.And so what is the truth? That EDSA was a "truly a genuine popular uprising and triumph against dictatorship"? Truth? How about Enrile and Honasan and their men planned a coup against Marcos to take over the government but was discovered which Cardinal Sin and the foes of Marcos saw as a chance for his ouster thus the call for people power?How about the Armed Forces of the Philippines holding the nation together by refusing to shoot at each other regardless of political leanings?
