Petition for Imelda Marcos to be buried at the Manila Film Center
The Manila Film Center is an edifice of Imelda Marcos' unwavering commitment to uphold the "true, good and beautiful" Completed on January 18, 1982 just in time for the 1st Manila International Film Festival (which is the brainchild of the former First Lady herself), this Parthenon-like establishment was built to serve as the main theater for the glamorous event they touted as the "Cannes Film Festival of Asia". In attendance were A-list celebrities like Robert Duvall, Ben Kingsley and George Hamilton, who were all in awe at the grandiose architecture and the sturdiness of the structure. A genuine patroness of the arts, the ever-humble Imelda always made sure that the labourers came first. This account is even immortalized in the 2015 movie, Tragic Theater. It is only fitting that a regal lady like Mrs. Marcos be buried alongside 169 unsung heroes who have sacrificed their lives for the completion of a world-class monument, now home to random hobo hookups and regular pot sessions -- which up to this day, serves as an enduring legacy of the dictatorship's glory days. "OY PUTA BAKIT AKO?!" -Imelda Papin

Petition Against Marcos' Burial at Libingan ng mga Bayani
Burying Ferdinand E. Marcos alongside our nation's heroes who fought for our freedom is an affront to the thousands of lives tortured and murdered during his reign. A hero does not take away freedom, he campaigns for it and fights for its survival for the sake of others. Laying him to rest at the Heroes' Cemetery is a disdainful act that will send a message to the future of our nation - our children - that the world we live in rewards forceful and violent hands. Several other reasons why Ferdinand E. Marcos should not be buried in the Philippine's Heroes' Cemetery: 1. According to President Duterte: “The issue on the burial of Ferdinand E. Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani has long created divisions among our people,” - This is not what's causing the division. It will in fact further sever the opportunity for unity since this is an injustice to the victims of Martial Law and the families they left behind. 2. It is a known historical fact that Ferdinand E. Marcos proclaimed Martial Law in 1972 which stayed in effect until 1981. Under Martial Law 70,000 people were imprisoned, 34,000 were tortured, and 3,240 were killed. 3. The United States Army concluded after World War II that claims by Ferdinand E. Marcos that he had led a guerrilla resistance unit during the Japanese occupation of his country were ''fraudulent'' and ''absurd.'' Blatant lies of manipulation is not a heroic act. 4. Only two of 33 war medals were received by Marcos during the 2nd World War. Fabricating stories about war accomplishments for political gain is not heroic. 5. His gross plunder and mass murder trumps his status as a soldier. Serving one's country in war does not warrant heroism if they place that same country in ruin. Foreign debt increased from $355 million in 1962 to $28.3 billion in 1986. The peso value to the dollar decreased from 3.90 in 1966 to 20.53 in 1986. 6. President Duterte declared: “I will allow the burial of President Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani not because he is a hero. He was a Filipino soldier, period.” - Not all soldiers were buried in Libingan ng mga Bayani and burying him there will label him a hero whether he was a Philippine soldier or not. "Those who were dishonorably separated, reverted, or discharged from the service, and those who were convicted of an offense involving moral turpitude cannot be buried at the cemetery." Marcos was ousted from power. On these grounds alone, he is not qualified. Ferdinand E. Marcos is not a hero. Only heroes are buried in the Heroes' Cemetery as the name so literally states. Your honors, please put these facts into consideration when you make your decision on Nov 8, 2016. Our nation's history and future depends on you.
