FVR claims that the usual EDSA celebration might attack anti-government protests. Therefore, the president refrains from holding a big one, he said. Since there’s nothing he can do about it, he insists on pushing to build the EDSA museum to store all materials to support what his group wants people to remember – the alleged tyranny of the Marcos regime that the real initiator, Senator Juan Ponce Enrile disputes.

[VIDEO]: Former President Fidel V. Ramos says a big celebration of the EDSA People Power Revolution’s 31st anniversary might attract anti-government protests.
Senator Enrile Corrects all Wrongs of Edsa
Enrile explains that it was him and the RAM group of Senator Gringo Honasan who wants the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos to step down through peaceful means – that Marcos obliged to for the safety of the Filipino people. FVR only joins later on with his symbolic jump and grabs all glories of EDSA that they painted for the world to believe in connivance with the Aquino’s political faction.
Don’t Want to Move on
Former President Ramos also don’t want people to move on from the wrongly publicized purpose of EDSA. Does this have something to do with the Martial Law abuses committed allegedly by his own Philippine Constabulary that they blamed Marcos for? Perhaps, he does not want people’s hate to go back to him if they are keen enough to know the truth – and not the made up stories that his allies want to put up at the said museum.
Truth Depends on Who People Talk to
Testimonies pour down coming from the people who happen to be part of the so-called People’s Power Revolution in EDSA. Pro-Marcos loyalists say that it is not a revolution but a mutiny by military men unsatisfied with the late GeneralFabian C. Ver’s leadership. The Anti-Marcos uses the church to lure unsuspecting Filipinos whom they install the nationalistic spirit in them when urging them to rebel against the administration. This is after the media propaganda launched to assassinate the character of then president Marcos and now, PDu30. Others purely believe that they were there for a cause – either they are pro or anti-Marcos.
The Marcos Administration only Suppress Rebels
Media practitioners, NPAs, Communist insurgents, activists, and outlaws are the enemies of the Marcos regime. Media was only blocked temporarily when they were used by rebels to spread out propaganda against the government. It is not true that there was no freedom of speech. It was even the late Cory Aquino who made a big fuzz by suing a journalist who wrote that she hides under her bed during one of Gringo Honasan’s coup d’etat. President Digong only temporarily boycotts the media when he was pissed off with them for giving a different meaning to his words. He never resorts to the court for all his detractors calling him names.
