No studies on Martial Law?
"Whether or not he performed worse or better, there is no study, there is no movie about it," President Rodrigo Duterte said. "It’s just the challenges and allegations of the other side which is not enough."
There are, in fact, more than enough studies on Martial Law. The Office of the Dean of Social Sciences at the Ateneo de Manila University has compiled an initial list of academic papers and books about the atrocities committed during the Marcos dictatorship, and how Filipinos collectively struggled to defend their freedoms.
