In remembering the declaration of Martial Law on September 21, Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) recently launched MartialLawMuseum.ph, an online museum/repository and learning system that features episodes of Kasaysayan TV, Knowledge Channel’s curriculum-based series on Philippine History.
The website is a “communal response to counter historical revisionism” especially at a time when trolling and misinformation has become prevalent on the internet. ADMU President Fr. Jose Ramon Villarin at the launch, encouraged everyone especially the younger generations to counter the “climate of disrespect and hate through a climate of vigilance, courage, justice, mutual respect, and dignity.”
