#INQStory Edsa People Power Revolution
MANILA, Philippines – Throughout the four historic days of the People Power revolution in 1986, the Philippine Daily Inquirer was at the forefront of the reportage as the events unfolded one-by-one.
From the initial “revolt” of then Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) vice chief of staff Lieutenant General Fidel Ramos on February 22, to the flight of President Ferdinand Marcos from Malacañang on February 25, the Inquirer kept the people up-to-date with the latest information through three extra editions published in the evening.
Before Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, smartphones, and the internet, this was how Filipinos consumed news and information during one of the most historic moments of Philippine history.
