At least not directly. From high school in Alabat Island, I went to Baguio to study Medical Technology and there, I was too busy studying and watching movies my hobby then.
My parents are not rich and we were 4 in college so there was no time to socialize or participate on rallies or demonstrations against the Marcos-US regime.
Also, Baguio was part of Marcos's bailiwick, the so-called Solid North so I thought that the student demonstrations and rallies there were not as militant as in Manila where one of my older brothers, now a successful lawyer, even had at some point bring my dad's gun to protect himself in rallies where he had to participate. Fast forward to yesterday, July 6, I was listening to a morning radio show while driving to work.
A caller said: "Kung wala kang ginagawang masama, hindi ka dapat matakot sa Martial Law" referring to President Duterte's Martial Law in Mindanao being declared as constitutional by the Supreme Court.

This insider account takes a look at the personalities involved in the creation of Marcos's tyrannical and corrupt dictatorship, as well as behind-the-scenes events that even the best historical revisionist would have a hard time hiding. That's how much of an insider account this is.
He took no steps to sugarcoat details, even to the point of self-incrimination. Mijares went on a self-exile to the U.
He attempted to return to the Philippines but was never heard from again. Tibo's youngest son, Luis Manuel "Boyet" Mijares, was abducted, tortured, and later found dead in He was 16 years old. At 19 years old, he already knows what's what. Weren't we all surprised?
That dreaded day in November prompted JC to have his grandfather's book republished. The revolution along EDSA toppled the dictatorship, and perhaps there's no other date more apt to launch this insider account of the Martial Law regime.
It was first published by Union Square in , then again in Since then, the book has been out of print. Some of the people my grandfather wrote about in his book are survived by their children and grandchildren. The book launch will be attended by the next-generation kin of those who opposed the Marcos dictatorship. Miriam Lacaba, daughter of late poet and activist Emmanuel Lacaba; Maria Serena Diokno, daughter of prominent Marcos critic Jose Diokno; and her nephew, writer and filmmaker Pepe Diokno, are all invited as guest speakers.
That's cheap compared to how much information it reveals. The new page edition of The Conjugal Dictatorship of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos is at P for the paperback and P1, for the hardcover version.
