I wrote (President Ferdinand) Marcos and I told him, ‘I have vowed never to enter the political arena again. I shall dedicate the last drop of my blood to the restoration of freedom and the dismantling of your martial law.’

… Do not forget that your readiness to suffer will light the torch of freedom which can never be put out. And learn to say ‘no.’ No to tyranny; no to corruption; no to all this degradation of human dignity.

BENIGNO “NINOY” AQUINO, during a speech in Los Angeles, 1983.

He was assassinated by President Marcos three years later; his death sparked the “People Power” movement that overthrew the Marcos regime.
