The nation marks the 26th Anniversary of the EDSA Revolution last February 25 at the People Power Monument lead by President Benigno S. Aquino III.
The program was highlighted with the signing of pledges from several provincial governors including the President who wrote “Gawin ang tama sa araw-araw tungo sa nagtatapos ng laban ng EDSA”, translate as “Do good everyday towards the end of fighting in EDSA.”
The EDSA Foundation awarded two youths for their effort of bringing solar lamps to remote communities.
The traditional “Salubong” or meet-up between the civilian and military factions was re-enacted followed by the showering of confetti from a PAF chopper which passes overhead.
President Aquino’s speech centered on the economy of the country.
The Cercado sisters rendered the song “Magkaisa” and Freddie Aguilar sang “Bayan Ko” to the delight of the crowd.
