Ninoy Aquino, youth, farmers and fisherfolk
MetadataShow full item record
On the 32nd death anniversary of Ninoy Aquino, we remember his commitment to support youth, farmers, and fisherfolk. We should now put into practice this precious legacy he left behind. Aquino always showed full support for the youth. They have two advantages. First, the youth have almost no vested interests. Second, they can break out of their elders’ traditional thinking. Instead, they can offer innovative and creative alternatives. In 1968, there was a Senate bill about to be passed in two days that would have effectively stifled student organizations’ initiatives. To protest this action, we could not do the usual student demonstrations because there was no time to secure the required permit.
