From:  “TORTYUR:  Human Rights Violations During The Marcos Regime”

“Peter Villaseñor was brought to a camp in Bataan where he was tortured for nine nights and nine days.  While he was hung naked from the ceiling, soldiers would flick his genitals and walis tambo was inserted into his urinary tract.  Thumbtacks were also inserted into his fingertips.  Bayonets were placed in his elbows and his mouth.  Naked, he was made to sit on three blocks of ice.  Electric shock was applied to his toe and his genitalia.  A stone was knocked repeatedly on his knees.  While his head and stomach were beaten, water drops were forced into his nose.”  Read all:  Chua – Tortyur Human Rights Violations During The Marcos Regime

From:  “HARING BAYAN:  Democracy and People Power in the Philippines”

“People Power is not just those four days in 1986, and it didn’t even start in 1983 with the death of a senator in an airport tarmac.  It began with many people continuing the fight and offering their lives as soon as Martial Law was proclaimed.

“Filipinos invented the concept of People Power—peaceful ouster of an autocratic one-man rule for a new democratic government.  But its spirit has always been embedded in the very root idea of democracy—from the Greek δημοκρατία (dēmokratía), DEMOS means people and KRATIA means leadership or power.  In the Western world, people had associated democracy with representative government, right of suffrage, political freedom, and civil liberties such as freedom of speech.”  Read all:  Chua – Haring Bayan Democracy and People Power in the Philippines
