After the Fall of Marcos

Philippine Economy and Politics

Jose Maria Sison wrote that some of his political opponents, after the fall of Marcos and the rise of Aquino:

misconstrued democracy as merely the “democratic space” for them within the ruling system in terms of civil and political liberties, claimed that there was no more ground for people’s ware and deliberately obfuscated the fact that the joint class dictatorship of the comprador big bourgeoisie and the landlord class and the open rule terror was persistent, despite the temporary liberal facade of the Aquino regime. In fact, the Aquino regime retained or made worse the antiworker and antipeasant decrees of Marcos and General Ramos intensified the military campaigns of suppression against the revolutionary forces. (Sison, 13)
