Aquino supporters line up Times Street with yellow ribbons

/ 07:01 AM September 18, 2017

Supporters of former President Benigno Aquino III lined the Times Street in Quezon City, where he lives with yellow ribbons a day after the Office of the Ombudsman announced it had denied his appeal to reverse its decision indicting him in the 2015 Mamasapano debacle.

Yellow has been the political color of the Aquino family since opposition leader Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. was assassinated in 1983.


The online group, The Silent Majority, has called on its members to tie yellow ribbons on Times Street from Friday to Sunday.

It also called on Aquino’s supporters to wear yellow on these three days. —Nikko Dizon
