22nd Anniversary of EDSA I


When will the lies end? GMA said in a radio interview last Saturday, that she learned that the agreement was "flawed" on the eve of the signing. Take note that she did not say that she learned that it was "anomalous", merely "flawed". And she purposely omitted clarifying what she meant by it. So, instead of clarifying the issue, she has muddled it.

GMA and her allies must have spent a fortune mobilizing people at Liwasang Bonifacio, Caloocan and Cavite. Pero mukhang, katakot-takot na malas ang inabot. At EDSA flag raising, which GMA did not attend, the flag got entangled while Veep Noli and FVR tried to raise it. The sound system failed while Renz Verano was singing Pilipinas Kong Mahal, iyong confetti bumagsak ng kumpol, iyong rally mobilized by Mikey and DAto at Liwasang Bonifacio, inulan.

GMA critics and those seeking for truth and accountability held different mass actions nationwide. Meron sa Baclaran Church, EDSA Shrine, Mendiola, and in key cities in Visayas and Mindanao. But there's no critical mass yet. The Church has no unified stand and there's no military component.

I wouldn't want a coup and a military takeover also. It's likely that GMA will be able to complete her term until 2010. But this shouldn't stop us from taking an active part in the current protests against corruption and lies. At least, these will keep GMA on her toes and prevent her group from further stealing billions of pesos from the people.
