Heroes’ cemetery’s name on Google Maps, Wikipedia changed temporarily

The name of the heroes’ cemetery has undergone several changes after the Supreme Court came out with the decision to allow the burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, at least online.

We have previously reported about how the cemetery’s name was changed into “Libingan ng mga Bayani at Isang Magnanakaw” on Wednesday morning, November 9. Now, we just found screenshots about the other changes done to the name of the burial grounds.


Twitter user @kevdeleon managed to capture a screenshot of the name change. This time, the Libingan’s name was edited into “Anyone’s Cemetery.”


And on Wikipedia, the Libingan’s name was changed into “Heroes’ and a Thief’s Cemetery.” Twitter user @GianChong posted a screenshot of that change.


With Wikipedia, anyone can “add or edit article prose, references, images and other media.” It also noted that “contributions cannot damage Wikipedia because the software allows easy reversal of mistakes and many experienced editors are watching to help ensure that edits are cumulative improvements.”

As of posting, the Libingan’s name on Wikipedia and Google Maps has reverted back to its original name.
