This has been formed from quotations from a speech Benigno Aquino Jr. (who is often referred to by the nickname “Ninoy” Aquino).  In this address he takes up an important Liberal Civil Right – the freedom from arrest without charge (the Habeas Corpus rule).  After the Plaza Miranda bombing of 1971, President Ferdinand Marcos used the incident as a pretext to suspend Habeas Corpus.  Senator Aquino declares in this speech the Liberal leaders will go to prison rather than accept the establishment of a dictatorship.
