Ninoy Aquino Day, August 21, 2009 is a special non-working holiday

August 21, 2009, Friday, is a special non-working holiday in commemoration of  Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr.’s death anniversary, declared as Ninoy Aquino Day (Republic Act No. 9256).

Ninoy was assasinated on Aug. 21, 1983 at the tarmac of then Manila International Airport (now Ninoy Aquino International Airport)when he returned to the country after three years of exile in the United States.

Twenty-six years after, Ninoy’s wife and former Pres. Corazon Aquino succumb to her ailment last Aug.1, a few days before his death anniversary.

Furthermore, the iamninoy campaign launched by the Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. Foundation (BSAF) is now on its second year of reliving Ninoy’s life and legacy through the programs they extend for the welfare of marginalized Filipinos.
