It’s been decades since this protest for farmers turned bloody, but ACT Rep. Antonio Tinio made sure it’s still going to be part of history.

The politiko joined fellow activists in a gathering to commemorate the 1987 Mendiola Massacre, where government forces shot at protesters who were calling on then-President Cory Aquino for land reform. Some 13 rallyists died after cops opened fire and injured many others.
