Philippine protesters celebrate ‘People Power’ ousting of Marcos Sr

PHILIPPINE protesters held a noisy rally today for the 37th anniversary of the “People Power” revolution, which ousted President Ferdinand Marcos Jr’s dictator father and sent the family into exile. 

It was the first commemoration of the uprising since Marcos Jr took office in June last year. He has praised his father’s 20-year regime, which critics describe as a dark period of human rights abuses and corruption that left the country impoverished.
