Manila, Philippines – Former PCOO assistant secretary Mocha Uson has shared on social media (from MindaVote) a video compilation of the Mendiola Mas$acre footage in 1987 as she slammed the Aquinos, especially the former President Cory Aquino.

In Mocha’s Facebook page, she said that there were many gullible people in the Philippines in the past.

“Santa daw o? Dami talagang uto uto sa Pilipinas dati...,” Uson said.

The Mendiola Massacre is also called as “Black Thursday” by some Filipino journalists, participated by farmers, workers and students; it took place in Mendiola Street, San Miguel, Manila on January 22, 1987, in which government security forces violently dispersed.

Around 10, 000 to 15, 000 protesters marched to the Palace hoping to have a dialogue with Aquino and raise their problems in terms of land reforms.

According to Wikipedia, some antiriot personnel disguised as civilians, opened fire on unarmed protesters killing at least 12 and injuring 51 protesters.

Reportedly, no one was punished over multiple deaths on that day. The House Committee on Human Rights had recommended giving compensation for the victims, but it was reported that no one received any compensation as well.

Further, sometime in 2017, ABS CBN reported that farmers and the families of the victims were still trying to seek for justice over the Black Thursday incident, even called on President Rodrigo Duterte to come up with a real land reform for the farmers.
