Who benefits from Martial Law in Mindanao? Certainly not the Marawi residents. So who?
A group of students and their teachers from Manila’s University of the East try to work out the answer to this curious question at a forum organized by pre-law students under the Lex Societas Orientis organization. Bantayog executive director May V. Rodriguez joined the forum “Duterte’s Martial Law: Serving Whose Interest?” as a panelist alongside guest speakers Christian Gultia of Beinte Uno, Al Omaga of National Union of Students of the Philippines, and Atty. Wilhelm Soriano, law professor, and formerly of the Commission on Human Rights.
