Paanong naging biktima ng Martial Law si LEAN ALEJANDRO kung 1987 ito pinatay?
This is the question posed by a fuming netizen to GMA News in response to the ‘misleading’ caption to a news article and read:
Kabilang sina Senator Risa Hontiveros at Sen. Kiko Pangilinan sa daan-daang sumali sa isang fun run na inorganisa upang alalahanin si Lean Alejandro, isang Martial Law victim, at kondenahin ang napipintong pagpapalibing sa yumaong diktador na si Ferdinand Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani.
‘Pandora’s Box’ posted the short open letter by Bernie Taghoy on its Facebook page 23 hours ago. The writer took a dig at GMA News #HindiTama campaign.
The open letter asked GMA News to write only the truth.
Dear GMA Network sana kung magbabalita kayo pakiayos.
The writer took particular interest on the timeline of the events on the death of the alleged Martial Law victim, which he believes GMA News got it wrong…
Paanong naging biktima ng Martial Law si LEAN ALEJANDRO kung 1987 ito pinatay? 1981pa na lift ang Martial Law, 1986 nang magkaroon ng EDSA revolution at 1986 nasa HAWAII na si Late President Marcos.
From here, GMA News gets a good tongue lashing from the open letter writer, questioning the online news giant’s slogan of impartiality.
Ano yan gaguhan? Iyan ba ang balitang WALANG KINIKILINGAN? Iyan ba ang BALITANG sa TOTOO lamang? Wag kayong magbalita ng hindi tama pwede?! Hindi kami BOBO gaya ng mga naniniwala sa mga KASINUNGALINGAN nyo.
Netizen Myrna Pamplona also took notice of the inaccuracies of the timeline regarding the death of Lean Alejandro and wrote: Ano? Biktima ng martial law c Lean Alejandro na isang aktibista? Cra ulo pala tong Risa Hontiveros at Kiko Pangilinan na to? Lukohin nyo lilong nyo,! Napatay c Lean Alejandro panahon na ni Cory. Napanood ko sa tv non ang interview sa asawa nito. Ang sabi nya, buti pa daw pala nong panahon ni marcos, pg hinuli ng militar ang asawa nya, pg hinanap nya natatagpuan nya sa kulungan.pero ng c Cory na ang precdnte, nahuli dn ung asawa nya ng mga militar, nong hinanap nya natagpuan nya sa punirarya na. Kc d pa rn ito tumitigil sa ka2 rally. May isa pa nga rng aktibista na napatay noon d ko nga lng matandaan kng panahon ni cory o ni Ramos. Olallia yata yong pangalan noon. Ubod talaga ng cnungaling ang mga bwect nato. C Precdnt marcos pa rn ang tnuturo nila na may kaggawan!!!!!
Same as netizen Kcire Cariaso who wrote: Wow.. Nahihiya naman ako sa dalawang senador na ito.. Lean Alejandro was assasinated on sept 19, 1987,, a year after the Marcoses were overthrown and exiled.. Is he a victim of martial law?? Your guess is as good as mine..
The authorities then and the govt of cory blamed the soldier’s who are loyal to the marcoses,, as the mastermfnd for his untimely demised but no suspect/s were caught.. So who is to blame?? Martial Law and the Marcoses.. Right?? Anyyway,, if you have a problem during those years and you cant solve it,, including the govt,, the Macoses were their to absorb and take all the blame..
A sure scapegoat..
Same as netizen Michael G. Dela Peña who wrote: On September 19, 1987, after the failed coup attempt led by Col. Gregorio Honasan, Alejandro announced plans for a major demonstration against the return to fascism. Returning by car to the headquarters of BAYAN, he was fired upon by a gunman, instantly killing Alejandro.
According to GMA News, “Leandro ‘Lean’ Alejandro, a student activist, was killed in 1987 by gunmen believed to be members of the Philippine Army loyal to Marcos.”
