Ninoy Aquino

Ninoy Aquino
Shown here is a statue of Ninoy Aquino at the corner of Ayala Ave. and Paseo de Roxas in Makati. He is a Filipino activist who was killed while he was going down the airplane that brought him home to the Philippines from the US, where he went on exile after controversies against the government forced him to go out of the country to save his life. Ironically, when he thought everything was clear, he came back...but even before he set foot on Philippine soil, two gun shots were heard, and shortly after, he was found dead, slumped on the very soil he fought for.
