“We started this as a political issue, wanting to prove that there were thousands of victims during Martial Law. Now, they are turning the compensation issue into an economic one, and the lawyers have full control.” – Judy Taguiwalo, UP professor and martial law victim.

Samahan ng Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto (Selda), the group that represents thousands of the victims in their efforts to hold the Marcoses accountable for their crimes, led a protest march today in front of the offices of Rodrigo Domingo, the Filipino lawyer who has been collaborating with court-appointed lawyer Robert Swift in the class suit.
