Ad Feedback

Thousands of Filipinos stood in line, Sunday, to pay their respects to former Philippines President Corazon Aquino.

She died friday of colon cancer.

Aquino rose to prominence in 1983 after dictator Ferdinand Marcos had her husband killed for challenging his rule.

Aquino then led the 1986 People Power Revolution that forced Marcos from power.

The uprising inspired other non-violent protests across the globe, including those against Communist regimes in eastern Europe.

The government has declared 10 days of mourning.
