Akbayan PartyList today countered Senator Bongbong Marcos’s calls to elect politicians who will push for unity, saying the ambitious scion of the dictator does not fit the quality he endorses.

“What unity is Bongbong Marcos referring to?” asked Machris Cabreros, Akbayan President. “If unity means forgetting that his father plundered the country and is responsible for the torture, disappearances and deaths of thousands, then that is not unity that is revisionism.”
“Fact: Marcos Sr stole billions of dollars from the country’s coffers, and we have not recovered all of these amounts,” reminded Cabreros. “Fact: The Marcoses have not spent a single day in jail for their crimes to the people. Any call for unity should never gloss over the need for justice.”
“Bongbong Marcos cannot sanitize his bid for the VP post by distancing himself from his father,” said Cabreros. “Marcos Jr was a legal-age, conscious adult at the height of his father’s atrocities, and if he will not apologize for the father’s sins then he is an accomplice to this historical injustice.”
“Bongbong Marcos as VP would be a crime against history,” said Cabreros. “There can be no unity without justice.”
“People need to be reminded that the massive theft from public coffers and the destruction of democratic institutions during Martial Law are part of the source of the systemic problems that we continue to feel today.”
“Bongbong Marcos belongs in the dustbin of irrelevance, not in an office a heartbeat away from the Presidency,” said Cabreros.
