On November 11, 2016, “Sa Mata ng Sigwa”, a reading of written works from the Ateneo during Martial Law, was held at the Faura AVR (Loyola Heights campus). The event was held three days after the Supreme Court’s (SC) decision to allow the burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
According to Fine Arts Department Chair Martin Villanueva, the event was planned prior to the SC’s decision, but that it was a timely coincidence. “If the response is to never forget, then so be it,” he said.
