The Philippine Southeast Asian (SEA) Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) led by House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano is subtly engaging in historical revisionism through materials distributed during the athletic meet.

Netizen @petratort shared on Twitter a photo of a page from the spectators’ map given to those watching the SEA Games.

The map’s section about the Philippines featured a paragraph which read: “Filipinos are a freedom-loving people, having waged two, peaceful bloodless revolutions against what were perceived as corrupt regimes.”

Aghast at the excerpt, @petratort said: “Since when was Martial Law just perception???”

Phisgoc-Cayetano has yet to comment on the issue.
