The World

September 01, 1985

More than 300 Philippine journalists bearing torches marched through the streets of Manila to protest what they call constraints on the press and the unsolved killings of 22 colleagues. The marchers carried cardboard coffins to symbolize the death of press freedom and signs demanding justice in the killing of 22 journalists since 1979. The journalists stopped outside the offices of four major Manila newspapers, owned either by friends or relatives of President Ferdinand E. Marcos.
