Did you know: Mendiola Massacre anniversary

/ 10:43 PM January 21, 2013

Today is the 26th anniversary of the so-called “Mendiola Massacre.” On Jan. 22, 1987, 13 people were killed when antiriot forces guarding Malacañang Palace fired at farmers holding a protest rally for “genuine land reform.” In 2007, militant farmers unveiled a granite marker at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani in Quezon City honoring the 13 farmers who were slain.—Schatzi Quodala, Inquirer Research
