    EDSA-2

    After thirty years, Filipinos will gather at the EDSA Monument to celebrate the revolution that dethroned Ferdinand Marcos from his dictatorial government of twenty years. This year, the EDSA People Power Commission has scheduled several events which includes an air show,  a wreath laying ceremony at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani in Taguig, flag-raising at the People Power Monument on February 25, and the opening of the Experiential Museum at Camp Aguinaldo.

    The  anniversary of the revolution will also feature the traditional salubungan, a reenactment of the meeting between soldiers and civilians that led to the end of the Marcos dictatorship. EDSA heroes, their children, and youth leaders will also participate in the salubungan to show their commitment to keep the memory of EDSA alive.

    The experiential museum combines theatre, cinema, photography, performances and installations , and was set up to educate young people about martial law and the 1986 revolt. The experiential museum has nine halls showing the oppression of martial law, the struggle of Filipinos to awaken the nationalistic spirit of the masses, and the unity of those who went to EDSA to call for the end of the Marcos dictatorship. Presidential Communications Operations Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. called on the youth to join the celebrations to remember the sacrifices of the heroes that made the freedom of the Filipinos from the Marcos dictatorship possible.
