Victoria Aquino-Benoit can not remain silent.
She took to Instagram to share her opposition to a proposed measure that seeks to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
The bill, filed by Davao City Rep. Paolo Duterte, Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco and ACT-CIS party list Rep. Eric Yap, seeks to rename NAIA to “Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas” (International Airport of the Philippines).
For Victoria, this move, if approved, will clearly erase history. If not for Ninoy Aquino, who was assassinated at the Manila International Airport, there wouldn’t be a democracy in place today.
There is nothing else left to do but to, in Victoria’s words, “Laban.”
