HIGHLIGHTS: 29th anniversary of the EDSA Revolution
MANILA, Philippines – In the year 1986, a nation ousted a dictator after 20 years in power in the capital's main thoroughfare. Democracy was restored, and a new constitution was drafted.
On Wednesday, February 25, it would be 29 years since thousands of Filipinos took to Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, or EDSA to call for former president Ferdinand Marcos to step down from office. Corazon Aquino, widow of slain senator and Marcos rival Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., took over Marcos' presidency, ushering a new era after years of martial rule in the country.
