List of Massacres Under Ferdinand Marcos


Two decades of terror have marred the administration of former madman Ferdinand Marcos with forced disappearances, killings, and mass murders or known as massacres. The most popular of these massacres are Jabidah and Escalante massacres.

In this list are the massacres done by the Ferdinand Marcos government, particularly the Philippine military. There were other mass killings I did not include such as the done civilians from boths of the Christian versus Muslim conflict.



Escalante massacre was called such because it happened in Escalante City, Negros Occidental where 20 civilians were killed by the government paramilitary forces.

PTV has a short documentary about the Escalante massacre.
