Thirty years ago, in February 1986, thousands of Filipino people lead by Corazon Aquino gathered at EDSA to fight for peace, justice and democracy and proved the strength of “people’s power” by driving Marcos into exile.¬†Nakamit ba talaga ng mga Filipino ang Katahimikan, Hustisya at Demokrasya? Taliwas ang nakita ko sa panahon ni former President Corazon Aquino – maraming patayang nangyari, walang hustisya ang mga biktima at untiunting naglaho ang demokrasya. Ang daming naghirap lalo. Dumami ang krimen, nabuhay ang narco-politics, naging talamak ang druga, naging malaking industriya ang illegal drugs sa bansa. Nagsulputan ang mga druglords, drugpushers at mga drugusers.

And during the presidency of Joseph Estrada, EDSA has forced him to make his final bow. After allegation of bribery, graft and corruption as well as of betrayal of public trust and violation of the constitution were leveled against him, the Philippines became a tormented nation. When cheap tricks of Estrada’s supporters prevented the constitutional process of impeachment from going ahead to its conclusion, EDSA came alive once again. When people power manifested itself, Estrada had to step down, showing that even the highest man in the land can be called upon to account for his actions.¬†Estrada’s supporters may have with shenanigans, avoid a verdict by the Senate. But the Filipino people have passed their verdict: Estrada was “guilty” and had to go.

Ngayon naman, kung kailan ang Pilipinas has produced a president who has the balls at handang mamatay para lamang maging maayos ang bansa natin, many of his enemies ay gagawin ang lahat para siya ay mawala sa kanilang landas. Sila ang mga taong hindi kayang tanggapin ang inihalal ng mga tao. Sila ang grupo ng mga tao na naapektuhan ng labis nang simulan ni Pangulong Duterte ang giyera laban sa druga, giyera laban sa korapsyon at iba pang giyera laban sa iba’t ibang krimen sa bansa. Applying the same method: calling the masa para mag people power to oust President Duterte, sa palagay ko hindi na ito bibinta ang ganitong pamamaraan. Nagising na kasi ang mga Pinoy mula sa kasinungalingan at kamangmangan.
