By Bad Seed
THE LONG WAIT IS OVER! After years of tedious and painstaking research and follow-ups from various sources and institutions, the so-called "Holy Grail" of Ninoy Aquino videos is finally online and can now be seen EXCLUSIVELY here on NATv!
On February 15, 1981, less than a year after he went on a furlough to seek medical treatment in the United States, Ninoy Aquino has been invited to a freedom rally symposium by the Movement for a Free Philippines (MFP) before a capacity crowd of Filipino and American guests at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles, California; where he spoke with enthusiasm and humor about his life and struggle under the martial law dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, his pompous and ambitious wife Imelda...and much more!
The presentation you are about to see has been made possible through the efforts extended by our dear friend, MARVIN MATIAS, whose invaluable contribution has paved the way in making this priceless piece of history available to millions of our countrymen. May this video serve as an instrument in remembering NINOY AQUINO; a great man of principle and courage who died for the cause of freedom, and at the same time, rekindle our collective minds of what we can do if we choose to be a hero for our country. Your participation will be forever appreciated by your friends here on Ninoy Aquino TV (NATv). Thank you very much.
Pardon the video and audio quality! The material is quite old!
