Good Shepherd Sisters participate in Protest Rally against Marcos Burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani
The Religious of the Good Shepherd participated in the protest rally at the People Power Monument on November 30, Bonifacio Day.
It was a response to the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines' call on members to pray for and join the rallies that started in different venues like the De La Salle Greenhills and Ateneo de Manila.
After the Mass, the groups gathered at De La Salle marched towards the People Power Monument (Epifanio delos Santos Avenue) EDSA.
The RGS came from the different communities including, Tagaytay, Baguio and NCR. Several RGS also proceeded to Bantayog ng mga Bayani in Quezon Avenue for the unveiling of the marker for the 19 new heroes, those students, laborers, church leaders and professionals who in their lifetime fought the Marcos dictatorship, among them Letty Jimenez Magsanoc, Bishop Julio Labayen, Sen Jovito Salonga and Behn Cervantes.
Five RGS including Sr. Christine Tan, whose birthday was Nov. 30, were among those people whose names were inscribed in 1999 and 2003 at the Bantayog for their contribution to help the victims of Martial Law. Sr. Christine was AMRSP co-chairperson from 1973-1976. Yesterday, the last group of RGS who stayed at the People Power Monument for the activities joined the thousands of youth, parents, religious, families who all wanted justice for those who were victims of Martial Law and for each one not to forget the atrocities of the Marcos regime.
