Gathering of Supporters
The gathering of supporters at the Supreme Court was not organized to create chaos. Many supporters did not know about it until it hit the media. Still, many supporters have expressed their disappointments and Bongbong Marcos urges them to instill discipline at all cause.
Still Marcos Declaration
A voice that leads the chant: Marcos pa rin! is evident and the people follow suit. It only takes and aggressive leader to escalate the crowd but Bongbong Marcos is for unity and he has no plans to create chaos. The country has been through a lot of damages already from the political battle.
Imee Marcos on Payback
Imee Marcos, sister of Bongbong Marcos denied that she contributed to President Rodrigo Duterte’s presidential campaign. Activists reasoned out that the SC’s decision must be reviewed because the move to bury Marcos at the Heroes’ cemetery is allegedly some kind of feedback.
Marcos Supporters want to be Heard
Marcos supporters have been very patient to the delays and all – but discrediting the Marcoses again to stop them from gaining political positions is another story. The avid supporters are now starting to get out of their way to be heard.
Contain Sentiments Sooner rather than Later
It is not the intention of Bongbong Marcos to stabilize the government. In fact, the Marcoses are very supportive to the Duterte administration. However, can they contain their many supporters who are becoming very impatient? The SC should consider them as well – not just the activists during martial law.
