August 21 2010 Holiday | Ninoy Aquino Day

It has been declared by Malacanang palace August 21 2010 as a Special Non Working Holiday in commemorating Senator Benigno S Aquino Jr death dubbed as the "Ninoy Aquino Day". In 2009, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo issued the same proclamation but of different date, declaring August 23, 2010 as a special non working holiday according to RA 9492 or the holiday economics law that all holidays be transferred on the nearest Monday. President NoyNoy Aquino modified the Republic Act declaring August 21, 2010 as the Ninoy Aquino Day. Meanwhile, some Filipinos are affected with this change.
