It says,

Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, a former Sen­ator in the Philippines, has in effect threatened President Ferdinand Marcos with new terrorist action against his gov­ernment. Speaking before the Asia Soci­ety in New York, Aquino predicted plots to kidnap, bomb and assassinate public officials in order to “bring President Marcos to his knees.” Aquino pointed out that “They [the terrorists] have re­ceived not only moral encouragement but material assistance,” then referred to the violent “Light a Fire” movement and declared, “More are coming, better trained and better prepared.”

Aquino came to the U.S. last May for heart sur­gery; since then, he has reportedly been sighted in Libya, Syria, and Europe. Philippines military prosecutors have charged 20 terrorists involved in the “Light a Fire” movement of having smuggled explosives from Seattle and San Francisco in order to kill President Marcos, Imelda Marcos, and six cabinet ministers. An industrialist formerly active in the Philippines and domiciled in San Fran­cisco, Steve Psinakis, has been accused by the military prosecution of acting as a key figure in the “Light a Fire” move­ment. Psinakis, an American, is the son­in-law of exiled Filipino politician Eu­genio Lopez.
