Sa kabataang di kilala si Marcos at di alam ang ginawa niya


Hindi ninyo siguro maintindihan kung bakit kailangang ipagdiwang ito taun-taon. Baka nga sawa na kayo siguro sa EDSA, sa taun-taong anibersaryo ng People Power, sa paggunita sa mga nangyari noong 1986, noong pinatalsik ng mga Pilipino ang diktador.

Lovefest Down Under for Aquino, ‘phenomenon’

THE FACE THAT CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY The transformation of Corazon Cojuangco-Aquino from “plain housewife” newly arrived from Boston (photo at right) started on Aug. 21, 1983, the assassination of her husband Ninoy Aquino, the political nemesis of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos. The contagion of Ninoy’s courage spread throughout the nation. And “Tita Cory” speaking at rally after indignation rally, this one (above) on Ninoy’s birthday on Nov. 30, led to a clamor for her to run against Marcos in a “snap election.” The rest is her history as an icon of democracy and of nonviolent revolution.
