🇵🇭2/25 - People Power Revolution
The People Power Revolution took place in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, and strengthened democracy in the Philippines through a non-violent revolution of citizens against regime violence and electoral fraud.
The People Power Revolution is a series of popular protests that took place in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, from February 22 to 25, 1986. Civil resistance movements against regime violence and election fraud continued. The nonviolent revolution ended the 20-year dictatorship of former President Ferdinand Marcos and restored democracy in the Philippines. After the assassination of Philippine Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. in August 1983, it is also called the Yellow Revolution because yellow ribbons were hung during protests as a symbol of protest. In exile, it was widely accepted as a victory for the people over the dictatorship of President Marcos, and even made headlines with the phrase 'a revolution that shocked the world'.
The protests were attended by more than two million Filipino civilians, political and military and religious groups led by Cardinal Jaime Sin, Archbishop of Manila, and Philippine President Cardinal Ricardo Vidal. The protests fled the Malacana Palace and fled to Hawaii after resistance and opposition by President Marcos and his followers. Ninoy Aquino's widow, Corazon Aquino, was inaugurated as the new president for a single six-year term.
