Thirty Seven Years Ago

I read a piece of history so; I grab it and post it here. Yet, I added some research and as what I gathered, 37 years ago in the Philippines, an explosion during the proclamation rally of the senatorial slate of the opposition Liberal Party in Plaza Miranda in Quiapo, Manila on August 21, 1971, prompted Marcos to suspend the writ of habeas corpus hours after the blast. A turning point in Philippine history and maybe a reason why I am interested in Social Studies. The chaotic transformation of Philippine Government at that time is very obvious. Click here to know the comprehensive history of the year 1971.
