Point of View: Martial Law of Marcos

By : GINOONG LAWIN

My Point of View

I wrote this article to express my own conviction regarding the declaration of martial law by our great late President Marcos. I want to prove that Marcos had good reasons in declaring martial law, that was, to restore the country’s peace and order and to save the Republic of the Philippines from the communist insurrection and seccessionist rebels through military means based on 1935 constitution. This was a heroic deed of President Marcos.
