ML@40 Concert: Remembering the Struggle and its Songs

The ML@40 concert remembered Martial Law, forty years after its declaration, on 21 September 2012, at the AS Lobby, CSSP, UP Diliman. The concert remembers the Martial Law period through the enduring power of songs that the people keep in their hearts and minds. It reminded us to guard against and fight the forces that brought about Martial Law 40 years ago, and that we must continue to sing as we fight.
