It All Started in Manila: People Power Revolution

Before Tunisia, before Cairo, before Tripoli, even before the Fall of the Berlin Wall, there was the People Power Revolution of 1986 in Manila, Philippines.

25 years ago, the Filipino nation proved to the entire world that peaceful revolution can topple a dictator. This was long before the age of Twitter and Facebook. Times were far more dangerous. But after 20 years of suffering under a tyrant, the Filipino people showed the world that ousting a dictator can be done through a bloodless revolt of the masses.

25 years later, the Filipino nation has yet to culminate its revolution against Corruption, Poverty and Inequality - modern-day tyrants that cripple a country.
