Naked Run Protest – level 1
Ferdinand Marcos is a dictator. He is in the Philippines. He is in power for 20 years. He does some bad things. People criticise him for this.
Ferdinand Marcos is now dead. People want to bury him at the Heroes’ Cemetery.
Some people do not like this. They say that he is no hero. Some of these people are students. The students run naked. This is a form of protest.
Difficult words: bury (put in the ground), hero (somebody who does something good for other people), cemetery (a place for dead people).
