Ayon sa kaniya, kaya marahil naahita ang mga sundalo ay dulot ng malakihang pagprotesta ng mga taga-San Antonio at Santa Isabel laban sa mga panginoong maylupa. Noong 1976, malala na ang mga pangangamkam ng lupa sa lugar. Ang mga tagaroon ay binabantaang umalis, sinisingil ng matataas na upa sa lupa at mababa ang pasahod sa mga manggagawang bukid. Gamit ang mga sundalo, nananakot ang mga hasyendero sa mga magsasaka na sila ay papaslangin at ikukulong kung ayaw magbayad o ibigay ang lupain nila.

Ilocandia Rumblings: Remembering Martial Law

My mother and father have not yet bumped into each other when Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law, so I can never claim firsthand experience on the matter. I rarely tell my friends that I grew up in family who are fervent Marcos loyalists (especially my mother’s side), usually from eaves dropping on their conversations regarding the benefits from the declaration – the order it brought, the supposed development, and many more. In high school, I even chose to be part of the group who favored the declaration of martial law during a classroom discussion on the issue. That classroom deliberation is the only instance that I can remember where it was deliberated on with a certain degree of importance. In school, martial law is usually discussed in passing without even giving judgment on its entirety or on its impact to the Filipino people during that period.
