MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Raïssa Robles, self-proclaimed investigative journalist and author of a book titled, ‘Marcos Martial Law: Never Again,’ is not a happy camper these days, thanks to President Rodrigo Duterte.
The President has just signed an Executive Order declaring September 21 this year, and every year thereafter as “Martial Law Appreciation Day.”
”We have to give credit where credit is due,” Duterte said. “Many Filipinos have greatly benefited from the Marcos Martial Law years. There was a massive build-up of infrastructure, Filipinos exhibited discipline, food supply and prices were under control, and the Philippines had the most beautiful First Lady anywhere in the world.”
Duterte himself has used Martial Law to put things in order in Mindanao, and the Mindanaoans are happy and forever grateful.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque urged all Filipinos to celebrate this new non-working holiday by sending a nice message to their Senators, Representatives and to media outlets like Rappler, ABS-CBN, Inquirer and others, expressing their thanks for the many good things that the Marcos Martial law has brought about in the lives of Filipinos.
The Adobo Chronicles reached out to Raïssa Robles and asked her if she plans to write a sequel to her book. She replied, “Never again!”
