Church leaders and activists in the Philippines have warned of widespread protests across the country after the government allowed the burial of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos in a cemetery for heroes last week.
"The people will not be silent about this," said Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo of Manila, chairman of the Commission on Laity of the Philippine bishops' conference.
The bishop said Filipinos are "creative" when it comes to showing their opposition to issues. "There will be protest actions," said Bishop Pabillo.
