A witty but a meaningful take on Martial Law by Lourd de Veyra’s WORD OF THE LOURD. Lourd and his Friend Jun Sabayton conduct some short interviews with the students in Manila’s University Belt.
He wants viewers to see how the young students understand the Martial Law during the Marcos regime. Most of the students take are all positive and good comments about the martial law and Marcos dictatorship. Some students are even explaining that Marcos corruption is justified because of the good things he did when it was his term.
And according to them, all the information they know are taken from the internet. Lourd says that after all these years, the youth and students are not properly educated on what is the truth about our history. And we need to start educating our young students on what really happened on September 21st, 42 years ago.
