How the EDSA People Power Revolution created a ripple effect across the globe

On February 25, 1986, millions of Filipinos trooped to EDSA (Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue) to protest against the dictatorship and injustices of the government of Ferdinand Marcos. Through the CNN live coverage, the whole world was witness to the biggest non-violent civil resistance in the country where, instead of guns, people carried rosaries and flowers as weapons against the threat of the military.

Thirty-three years after that fateful event brought democracy back to the Philippines, many scholars say that this peaceful protest served as a spark of inspiration for other countries to take the same path in their fight against tyranny.
