SDK Heroes and Martyrs

HEROES AND MARTYRS FROM SDK

 

SDK stands for Samahang Demokratiko ng Kabataan (Democratic Association of the Youth or SADEKA). It was a pre-Martial Law student and youth activist mass organization in the early 1970s that existed from 1968 to 1975, or about seven years.

SDK has strong membership from students of top schools and universities in the Philippines. It started in the University of the Philippines in Diliman and later expanded to other schools in Metro Manila and other key cities. It fought and resisted Martial Law when it was declared in 1972.

In the course of SDK's struggle, many of its members have fallen. Among those who have been recognized by the Bantayog ng mga Bayani Foundation have been listed and enshrined as heroes and martyrs in the Bantayog ng mga Bayani Wall (with asterisks) located at the corner of Quezon Avenue and EDSA in Quezon City.
