IN PHOTOS: This is how millennials stage an anti-Marcos burial protest


MANILA, Philippines - Despite their reputation as selfish, narcissistic and entitled brats, millennials have decided to take a stand on an issue that has started years before some of them were born.

Instead of spending their one-day holiday binge-watching on Netflix, the generation born between the 80’s and early 2000’s dominated the streets in protest of the surprise burial of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr. at the Libingan ng mga Bayani during the November 30 rally.

But how did the most misunderstood generation become the forefront of the rally in EDSA?

Using wit and creativity, the young protesters carried protest placards and signposts showing statements, catchphrases and lingo clearly reflecting their generation. From famous hugot lines to referencing their favorite films and TV shows, members of the generation Y certainly made a statement during the rally.
