This is a thesis of Maria Theresa Rojas Nera for her Masters Degree at St. Scholastica’s College
It is not often that one is given the time and the chance to do what one enjoys.
Chances are, one ends up doing something not because one wants to but because one has
to. The writer feels very fortunate that she has been given the rare opportunity to do a
study that enables her to articulate what she has been fighting for all these years. The
chance was given her and she was provided the venue to express the truth of the people’s
struggle for genuine freedom and democracy in the land. These are the realities of life
which she wants to impart to the greater majority of the people still living in darkness.
In doing her study, the writer has discovered that indeed, all of us have a
historical role to play in working for an equitable society. The task of shaping the future
lies at our hands and the moment to do is now.
The writer hopes that the readers will join her study not only in this historical
voyage but also in the quest for freedom in the land.
