Transcript of The Philippine People Power Revolution

The People Power Revolution
also known as the EDSA Revolution, the Philippine Revolution of 1986, and the Yellow Revolution, was a series of demonstrations that began from 1983 and culminated in 1986.
It is also referred to as the Yellow Revolution due to the presence of yellow ribbons during the demonstrations following the assassination of Benigno Aquino, Jr. It was widely seen as a victory of the people against the 20-year running authoritarian, repressive regime of then president Ferdinand Marcos and made news headlines as "the revolution that surprised the world".
People want rights that they deserve
People want to have freedom
Military was involved
The president was in charge of the military
New leaders were put in charge
People were forced what to do
The methods used amounted to a sustained campaign of civil resistance against regime violence and electoral fraud. This case of nonviolent revolution led to the departure of President Ferdinand Marcos and the restoration of the country's democracy.

Reason people believed
they deserved better
They don’t have the freedom
that they have than they were supposed to have due to martial law, freedom of speech was set
to a limit, and the citizens were told to do what is asked.

Ninoy Aquino
