“Son, my decision is an act of conscience. It is an act of protest against the structures of injustice that have been imposed upon our hapless countrymen. Futile and puny as it will surely appear too many, it is last my act to defiance against tyranny and dictatorship.”
– Ninoy Aquino, letter to Noynoy (Benigno Aquino III), August 25, 1973

Ninoy Aquino - For seven years, I was not allowed

Ninoy Aquino - For seven years, I was not allowed

"For seven years, I was not allowed to see the moon and the stars. There were days when they left me all alone by myself. I had no reading material. I had nothing. I was twiddling my thumb. I would walk and walk and walk across my room; it was a room about four meters by five meters, hoping that I'll get tired. And then when I get tired, I would fall asleep, knowing that tomorrow will be the same."
- Quote of Ninoy Aquino, Freedom rally symposium by the Movement for Free Philippines (MFP); Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles, California; February 15, 1981

Ninoy Aquino – The Filipino is worth dying for

Ninoy Aquino - The Filipino is worth dying for
The full non-truncated form of Ninoy Aquino’s Speech:

“I have asked myself many times: Is the Filipino worth suffering, or even dying, for? Is he not a coward who would readily yield to any colonizer, be he foreign or homegrown? Is a Filipino more comfortable under an authoritarian leader because he does not want to be burdened with the freedom of choice? Is he unprepared, or worse, ill-suited for presidential or parliamentary democracy?

I have carefully weighed the virtues and the faults of the Filipino and I have come to the conclusion that he is worth dying for because he is the nation’s greatest untapped resource.”
Ninoy Aquino, delivered at Asia Society New York on August 4, 1980
