Correction time! Emil Marañon says Magellan battle in Cebu ‘power struggle’, not fight for freedom

Election lawyer, Emil Marañon said that the epic battle of Cebu between Lapu-Lapu and Ferdinand Magellan is not what it looks like.

The abogado called it a power struggle rather than a fight for freedom.

Marañon shared this after President Rodrigo Duterte asked that Lapu-Lapu be given greater standing among Filipino heroes. The abogado mentioned that a lot of our history was grounded on manufactured narratives and Lapu-Lapu’s story is just another proof that we remain insecure even as we stepped out of our colonizer’s shadows.

Facts only daw!
