Groups mark 47th year after Martial Law

Members of multi-sectoral groups gather in Mendiola, Manila on Friday for a program calling for an end to supposed political repression and human rights abuses against those critical of the government’s policies. The groups claim increasing state repression from the current administration as the protest comes a day before the 47th commemoration of the declaration of Martial Law in the country.
