Cycle of Fascist Violence Under Marcos Jr.

THE MARCOS REGIME confirmed in the first quarter of 2023 that it is deadset on perpetuating the same anti-people political and economic policies and human rights violations committed by its predecessors. From extrajudicial killings to illegal or arbitrary arrests and forced or fake surrenders, there is nothing to differentiate Marcos Jr. from those who have come before him.

He has shamelessly allowed impunity to continue under his watch, and like his predecessors, has literally allowed perpetrators to get away with murder.
