Vice President Leni Robredo sends message to the people that it was not the “Yellows” that made the Edsa People Power Revolution happen but the unity and the will of the Filipinos.

Robredo has reminded the crowd who attended the 33rd anniversary of the EDSA revolution at Immaculate Concepcion Parish in Naga City.



“Laging natatatakan ng kulay ang celebration ng (They always mark with color the) Edsa people power revolution, but we know this celeberation is not about the ‘yellows’ and other groups but to remember the Filipinos who sacrificed during that time for the freedom that we are enjoying now,” the vice president said

“Nakakalungkot na konti na lang ang umaalala sa makasysayang revolution na ito (It sad that that only a few now remember the historic revolution) but I am proud that in Naga we are consistent in celebrating because we never forget and we will always keep in us the lessons of that darkest chapter in history,” she said.

The said event was reportedly attended by students, non-government and multi-sectoral organizations.

“We are glad that we have a lot of students who came here today. Kahit wala pa sila noong panahong iyon, kasama natin sila sa pag-alala dahil delikado kapag nakalimutan natin ang lahat ng aral noong Edsa (Even though they were not there during that era, we have them now with us for the commemoration because it would be dangerous if we forget the lessons of Edsa),” she said.

The vice president also believes that ordinary citizens still hold the power in their hands.

“…Naniniwala tayo na hindi dahas ang solusyon sa kung ano man ang pinagdadanan natin ngayon, laging may magandang paraan sa pag resolve ng mga problem (We believe that it is not violence that would solve whatever challenge we are facing now; there is always a better way to resolve problems),” Robredo said

“We’ve fought tanks with rosary and prayer over guns. Nothing is impossible,” she added

  1. Kaunti na lang ang sumasali sa pag alala sa edsa revolution dahil karamihan nagising na sa katotohanan na ang mga aquino, mga Dilawan at mga pari ay maraming pakpak na ginawa mula pa noon at hanggang ngayon
