YOUTH IN REVOLT

I hardly post about my political stance online, but when I do, I do it with a bang. Now, this is what you call a fashion statement

2016 was the height of online political discourse (at least I think it was). Millennials used Twitter and Facebook as their medium to spread their opinions about the political drama happening in the Philippines. I'm part of that demographic; I don't always tweet about my political stance, but last year, I found myself tweeting more than once about it. I was even sharing numerous articles and posts on Facebook - relatives with opposing views be damned.



So when my university decided to hold a noise barrage to protest the burial of the former President and Dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, I decided to make noise somewhere else instead of just making noise online.



Joining that noise barrage was an experience, and while the protests on the streets are over, they still live on in other forms - like this Youth in Revolt shirt for example.



Created by Monica Magsanoc in support of the victims of the Martial Law, this shirt serves as our generations' pen and paper to expose the injustice that was present during the bloody era. It's simple, subtle, but powerful - and it gets the message across.



Sadly, the shirt is now unavailable for orders.
