In this short explainer video, I will explain the
the reasoning behind the People Power Revolution
that happened in 1986.
So, let's start from the beginning...
Let's say you are a Filipino living in
1965, President Ferdinand Marcos
just got elected.
A whole term goes by and he is
re-elected in the 1969 election,
being met with harsh criticism.
A bad omen.
As 1973 edges closer and Marcos'
second and last term nears it's
end, Marcos declares Martial Law in
1972 thus suppressing free speech.
He shuts down multiple organizations,
media establishments, and
corporations. He arrests journalists,
political opponents, and anyone who
would dare challenge his reign.
And thus began a 14 year nightmare,
people who fought against Marcos
were killed brutally like bugs.
Bodies being dumped in public as
to induce fear.
Imagine, you and thousands of
Filipinos suffering for one man's
gain? This was unjust, unfair,
I hope you have a deeper understanding of what the
Filipinos then were going through at the time,
and why they had to revolt.
This was very fun to make, it's always great to deepen
my knowledge of significant events in my country.
Anyways, I hope you have a wonderful day!
