“As with the Legacies of the Marcos Dictatorship, and with the fallen Estrada Presidency, it has been the position of the Project’s Convenors that memory and truth telling are essential in the pursuit of justice. These were the themes of the Conference on the Legacies of the Marcos Dictatorship that was organized in September 1999, during the height of Estrada’s campaign to curtail the freedom of the press.”
from the Preface by Teresita Quintos Deles, Convenor, Project on the Legacies of the Marcos Dictatorship
"If we are to move forward as a people, we must collectively come face to face with the past. It is not too late for a nation to resolve to remember, to speak the truth, and to assert: Never again!"
