Dictatorship & Democracy in Philippines – CBC The World This Weekend

MANILA, Philippines – Thirty years since the People Power non-violent uprising that overthrew the corrupt regime of Ferdinand Marcos and martial law, Filipinos head to the polls.

The anti-establishment mayor of Davao city, Rodrigo Duterte, is favoured to win the presidential election, while Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is slated to be vice president.

Filipinos fear losing the democratic values they fought for in 1986 and return to strong man rule. Marcos has attempted to revise history to appeal to youth born after martial law. This story aired on CBC TWTW Sunday, May 8, 2016.
