SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- Former Chronicle Editor Phil Bronstein writes an op-ed on lessons learned from the 1986 People Power Revolution in the Philippines. “The people’s power that ushers in real change and rejects villainy lies in all of us, standing vigilantly in front of a despot’s tanks, literally or figuratively. The history lesson today, courtesy of those who participated three decades ago in the successful revolt against Marcos, is that nothing less is required.” Kim Komenich won a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his news photos of the final years of the Marcos regime. Komenich, who teaches photojournalism at San Francisco State University, used his 1980s photos to reconnect with individuals in 2010 to document how People Power had shaped their lives.
