There are 11,103* State-recognized Human Rights Violations Victims of the 1972-1986 Martial Law Period, throughout all the provinces of the Philippines.
The provinces with the most number of recognized human rights violations are colored black, the provinces with the least number of recognized human rights violations are colored white, and the provinces that fall in between are colored in gradations of red. This map signifies and emphasizes the magnitude and extensiveness of the human rights abuses that took place during Marcos’ Martial Law regime.
This map serves as a reminder to memorialize and honor the 11,103 victims. #WeRemember
Inspired by Denz del Villar, My Philippines Travel Level, and the Ateneo Human Rights Center.
*913 out of the 11,103 victims are not yet represented in this heat map, because of the lack of data on the specific location where the violations were committed.
