VIRTUAL MUSEUM OF COURAGE AND RESISTANCE by TFDP
“There is a current aggressive social media campaign to rewrite the history of the Filipino people. Using graphics and great musical score, it retells the story of the Martial Law period in a favorable light, giving credence to the action of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos. It also tried to trivialize the martyrdom and sacrifice of those who have struggled to regain our democracy.
On the previous projects of the Museum of Courage and Resistance, we tried to fill this void by having the Museum come to the students. We tried to educate by taking our museum on a tour around different universities and colleges all over the Philippines to share the story of the Martial law era, not only the atrocities of human rights violations during the period but also the strength of character shown by the Filipino people in fighting against the dictatorship. We organized forum to discuss the importance of these stories to our present condition and that we, as people should continue in striving for real democracy and the absence of human rights violations.
Unfortunately, we can only reach so much audience. Because of limited resources, we could only organize this event in a number of schools in the country, we could also bring only limited number of material per leg of the tour. To reach a bigger number of audience, specially the younger generation, we have created this virtual version of the Museum of Courage and Resistance to make it accessible from all parts of the world. It will also be beneficial to older demographic, who may not be physically available to tour the museum will have an access through the online site.”
YOUTH FOR FOI
“The FOI Youth Initiative (FYI) is a national network of youth and student organizations that call for transparency and accountability among public officials and offices through the immediate passage of the People’s Freedom of Information Bill. As a member organization of the Right to Know, Right Now! Coalition, we are in solidarity with the struggle of various sectors of society for the transformation of the government as an institution that is open and honest to the people it serves.
The FYI was formed in August 2012, during the Third Regular Session of the 15th Congress. Together with 71 organizations from schools and communities all over the Philippines, we began the first youth-led campaign for the FOI Bill. We diligently attended hearings on the bill and actively engaged legislators in both Houses of Congress. At the same time, we held various discussions in various parts of the country to educate our fellow young people on the issue. Moreover, we joined various sectors in marching to Malacañang to pressure the Executive to heed our call. Unfortunately, those opposed to the bill were successful in derailing its approval in the House of Representatives.”
