A true hero: Tony La Viña, Ateneans honor Vicente Mirabueno
Professor Tony La Viña continues to school his students on the heroes of Martial Law. The abogado lets his Atenean students honor a fellow Mindanawon, Atty. Vicente Mirabueno.
The aspiring abogados paid tribute to the human rights lawyer and FLAG member during their recent discussions. La Viña highlighted that he is a martial law hero and that Mirabueno’s life story is still told in the Bantayog ng mga Bayani.
The abogado drew inspiration from his fellow abogado who dedicated his law career in fighting for the rights of urban groups and other marginalized sectors in South Cotabato. After years of leadership and courageously battling military harassment and threats, Mirabueno was murdered in the middle of the city’s public market by two men who fired bullets to his chest.
Tapos lakas magka-amnesia nung iba? Wag si Mr. Abogado!
