The People Power Revolution was a series of popular demonstrations in the Philippines, mostly in Metro Manila, from February 22–25, 1986. There was a sustained campaign of civil resistance against regime violence and electoral fraud. The nonviolent revolution led to the departure of Ferdinand Marcos, the end of his 20-year presidential term and the restoration of democracy in the Philippines. it was a revolution without precedent. Men, women and children - armed only with crucifixes, images of the Blessed Virgin, songs and rosaries to signify their prayers - made themselves into human barricades. So they disarmed the Marcos forces.the book captures history as it was made out of spontaneous courage which Filipinos will never forget and about which the world will always wonder.
