Nuns from different monasteries link arms at the reenactment of the famous "Salubungan" in front of the Corinthian Gardens along Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) in Quezon City during the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution, yesterday*
San Carlos Bishop Gerardo Alminaza yesterday stressed the need to keep the memory of the abuses committed during the martial law years alive to prevent them from happening today.
Alminaza made the call yesterday as the nation marked the 30 th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution that led to the ouster of Ferdinand Marcos.
“We should not forget,” said Alminaza, who pointed out that many from Negros Occidental were victims of the human rights abuses during Marcos' 20-year rule, including 20 protestors who were massacred by government forces in Escalante City, which is part of the Diocese of San Carlo
MANILA - President Benigno Aquino urged voters yesterday to stamp out the stunning political resurgence of Ferdinand Marcos' family, as the nation marked 30 years since a "People Power" uprising toppled the late dictator.
The election campaign is the latest chapter in an almost Shakespearean tale of feuding between the Aquino and Marcos families, two of the most powerful clans in a nation famed for elite dynasty rule.
