Dr. Rene Escalante, Chairman of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines finds himself explaining the true essence of the EDSA People Power Anniversary. Filipinos should express unity and set aside political colors and political affiliations, he said. This is after President Du30 speaks on the heroism of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. Anti Du30-Marcos protests mushroom in minimal fractions due to the fear that once Bongbong Marcos wins the recount on March 19 against Vice President Leni Robredo, Du30 resigns to give way to Marcos as President. This is in line with the prediction in the past.

[VIDEO]: Dr. Rene Escalante, Chairman of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines says that as we reminisce the 1986 People Power Revolution, the Filipinos should express unity and set aside political colors and political affiliations. Only a few thousand protesters made it to the scattered scenes.
The Yellows’ Nightmare
It is not surprising for people who know President Du30 why on the eve of the so-called EDSA People’s power Anniversary, the President hails the late President Ferdinand Marcos as a hero. Knowledgeable Filipinos can relate to this because the only reason why EDSA was peaceful is that, the former President had the heart of preventing a bloody defense by stepping down. Nonetheless, Du30 can be irked by unmindful protests. When that happens, Filipinos can wake up one day with Bongbong Marcos as the new President.
Copy Cat Campaign
The anti-administration rally organizers said that the nationwide protest seeks to raise awareness on several issues. They include press freedom, human rights, Charter Change, mass transport, extrajudicial killings, and martial law in Mindanao in their campaign. Collectively, the protesters show their concern over the assumed looming dictatorship of President Du30. This is the same scenario as to the event leading to the fall of President Marcos. The yellows seem to forget that they are destabilizing a very popular leader and well-loved real Vice President.
Warning or Prediction?
Since the evidence against Robredo is logical, the yellows seem to double their efforts but to no avail. The majority of Filipinos still support the current administration. Most Filipinos wish to see Bongbong Marcos leading the country. As it was written; hail the pearl of the orient now has a new leader. His name symbolizes the sound of a bell…bong, bong, bong.
Like Father, Like Sons
Joseph Simon, Ferdinand Alexander, and William Vincent all have the bearing and intellect of a Marcos. Ferdinand Alexander “Sandro” Marcos, 23, recently finished his graduate studies at the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science. Sandro’s popularity roars this early as seen recently at the Caloocan University gathering. Apparently, the crowd expects to see the younger Marcos and not his father Bongbong.
