Held only a week in September during the anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law, the 1081 commemorative event serves as a solemn reminder of the victims of state violence that occurred during the 1970s under the regime of the late dictator, Ferdinand Marcos Sr. On the anniversary of Marcos Sr.'s declaration of Martial Law, which was established through Proclamation No. 1081, his son, Marcos Jr., continues to deny the atrocities committed by his father and is actively attempting to erase this dark chapter in our nation's history from the collective memory of the people.
The essay writing contest spearheaded by CommUP is organized for all bonafide students enrolled in University of the Philippines Cebu who are interested in joining. This contest provides an avenue for student writers to publish their written pieces on a timely and relevant theme to pen their thoughts from.
