The revolution, which ran from February 22 to February 25, was considered as the forerunner of nonviolent demonstrations around the world such as those in Eastern Europe. It is also known as the Yellow Revolution, after Aquino's campaign color.
Beginnings of unrest — the late s to the First Quarter Storm The seeds of unrest that eventually bore the People Power Revolution were planted in the mid to late s.
President Ferdinand Marcos was elected president in the elections ofwinning against incumbent Diosdado Macapagal by a slim margin.
Marcos' first term was marked by one of the largest infrastructure programs the country has ever seen. He was reelected inthe first president to be elected for two consecutive terms.
However by the late s to the early s, discontent among the people started to grow, starting with the involvement of the Philippines in the Vietnam War and the general dissatisfaction of the public over their quality of life. Soon, movements were established such as the Communist Party of the Philippines in which took over the cause of the old Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas and its alliance with the New People's Army which came from the old Hukbong Mapagpalaya ng Bayan in When news broke out that Marcos planned to amend the constitution, allowing him to run for a third term in the presidential elections ofstudent-led protests erupted in the streets, in what has since become known as the First Quarter Storm of Later, student movements also led the Diliman Commune of February Despite the violent protests, the Constitutional Convention still convened in June In response, Marcos suspended the writ of habeas corpus; however another spate of bombings in the metropolis happened in On September 22,then Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile was the focus of a staged assassination attempt; a day later, Marcos declared martial law.
During the Martial Law period, Marcos was able to pass the Constitution which changed the form of government to a parliamentary system. He detained basically anyone critical of the regime, including Aquino, Sen.

Seeing the unrest triggered by the Aquino-Galman assassination, Marcos formed the Agrava Commission to investigate. Because of added pressure from the United States, in November Marcos called for snap elections.
One of the most brutal incidents that happened in connection with the snap elections was the killing of lawyer Evelio Javieropposition ex-governor of Antiqueon 11 February Javier was chased and shot to death in broad daylight at the provincial capitol.
