“We didn’t give a formal invitation to Ma’am Leni. We sent feelers since this is an open invitation for those who are willing to attend and from what I’ve heard she has confirmed her attendance just today,” Jozy Acosta said, the executive committee chair of the Coalition Against Marcos Burial in the Libingan ng mga Bayani (CAMB-LNMB).
Other officials who will attend are Senators Francis Pangilinan, Leila de Lima, Risa Hontiveros, and Grace Poe.
The citizen’s assembly aims to have a signature drive to hinder the burial of Marcos’ remains, said Zena Bernardo of CAMB-LNMB. It will start at 8 a.m. to noon, where there will also be a mini-concert by artists and singers.

Meanwhile, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano insisted that Marcos be buried in Ilocos Norte, the dictator’s home province. “I’m clamouring for the Marcoses to make the sacrifice themselves and have a very good, decent, meaningful burial there in Ilocos. I hope that the Marcoses would see what is best for the country and not what’s best for the family,” he said. ASCS
