The 31st anniversary of the EDSA “People Power” celebration is “meaningless” if the the masterminds of the 1983 assassination of former senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. are not found. The Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) said this since it triggers the revolt.–

Failure of the Two Aquino Administrations
VACC founding Chairman Dante Jimenez calls for the reinvestigation of the case. He laments on the failure of the two Aquino administrations to determine those are responsible. If there’s no closure to the assassination, doubts remain. Jimenez is referring to the term of Aquino’s widow, former late President Corazon Aquino, and son Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
The People Want Closure as Bongbong Marcos Urges
People want to find out the truth. Filipinos want closure that can only be possible through the identification of the masterminds. Article 90 of the Revised Penal Code should apply to the real assassins. It is a crime punishable by death, reclusion perpetua or reclusion temporal of not less than twenty years. Bongbong Marcos asks for the same thing.

Bam Aquino’s Twisted Defense
Senator Paolo Benigno Aquino IV or Bam Aquino, Ninoy’s nephew, said that the “People Power” revolt belongs to the people and not to the Aquinos. The historic event did not happen only because of his 1983 assassination, he said. It happens because the people want democracy back. They want freedom and fight the widespread corruption, he added. Nonetheless, the people are fed-up because, after the two terms of the Aquinos in the presidency, all the problems mentioned become worse.
False Democracy by the Liberal Party
The constant attacks and rebellion towards the policies of the president are evident from the Liberal Party. These are signs of communism principles. In a democratic country, all must respect the choice of the majority. The LP members really do not advocate true democracy including the blocking of Bongbong Marcos to the Vice Presidency.
