The Bantayog ng mga Bayani (Memorial of Heroes) website has been under maintenance since Tuesday (May 17), but they assured that the content of the page will remain the same when it goes up again.

Bantayog is a memorial located in Quezon City dedicated to victims of Martial Law and those who advocated for democracy who lived long enough to witness the People Power uprising.

Not specifying why the website was down, they said on a Facebook post: “We are working on solving the problem as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience or anxiety this may have created. We will announce any developments. Thank you.”

Concerns over the Bantayog website arose as Marcos-related articles are being taken down across social media aggravated by fears of historical revisionism brought upon by an imminent Marcos II presidency.
