Back from the Dead

Archimedes Trajano

Many Filipino millennials have formed misconceptions on Martial Law since school textbooks have omitted the human rights violations that happened during that time. We brought back Archimedes Trajano, a Martial Law victim, from the dead to tell his story and used it to petition the government to revise the textbooks and include historical truths about the atrocities during the Marcos regime. Recently, the Department of Education of the Philippines has committed to a curriculum change that will reflect the corruption and human rights abuses that happened during Martial Law.
