Hacienda Luisita, Mendiola Massacre, EDSA Revolution, NAIA

by: Psychic August

Will the Hacienda Luisita and Mendiola Massacre issues be finally resolved during the Duterte administration? 

Even with the current Duterte administration, there will be little, if at all, land reform that will occur on the controversial Hacienda Luisita, keeping it in the hands of the Aquino's and other landlords that financially benefit from it. Every now and then, in the next several years, we will still hear news of farmers' protests, or the like.

Likewise, the Mendiola massacre will also not have any final resolution during the current administration, in terms of vindication for all who had lost friends and family during the tragedy.

On commemorating the EDSA Revolution
The 1986 Edsa revolution  which is commemorated every 25th of February will still be observed, although just relegated to a working holiday, with the usual ceremonies held in the Edsa shrine reduced to a Mass held in remembrance of it.

On Ninoy Aquino International Airport

The Ninoy Aquino International Airport will revert back to being officially called "Manila International Airport".
