 About Bato, Leyte

By July 1994, the tentative program for the Leyte Landing anniversary was made available to the media, and this was promptly disseminated to the regional audience by the local radio stations.
After the overall negative impact of the 1994 Leyte Landing anniversary, former President Fidel Ramos jumped into the Bells of Balangiga bandwagon, which was ironically the same issue that he scorned when the local media mentioned it to him in July 1994, during his visit to Tacloban to supervise the preparations for its commemoration.
Until 1994, it was virtually taboo in Leyte to write and discuss World War II accounts that contradicted the American perspective and the textbook version of the events, i.e., that the Japanese were bad, that the guerrillas were heroic freedom fighters, and that the Filipinos awaited the return of General MacArthur.
