Sky turns yellow for 27th Edsa anniversary



MANILA, Philippines – The sky turned yellow Monday when confetti rained down from the sky as the country celebrates the 27th anniversary of the People Power Revolution.

A helicopter showered the participants of the yearly “Salubungan” with confetti when they reached the People Power Monument in Quezon City around 8:30 a.m.

The participants, which included military, police officials, members of the church, non-government units and other sectors,  shook hands as yellow confetti fell from the sky.

    Walang kuwentang EDSA. My problema ang mga kapatid natin at buong Phils sa lupa nating ninakaw sa mga kawatan na Malaysia at Briton. Ito nag diwang pa sa EDSA, move on people. Puro naka tingin sa history na hindi nakaka tulong.

      Nasa Sabah ka ba, o sa Scarborough Shoal, sa mga sandaling ito…kung wala ka doon….magkakawag ka na lang nang magkakawag, dahil sa sobrang kahihiyan sa sarili mo, kung talagang marunong kang mahiya…kung wala naman, mandiri ka na lang sa sarili mo,dahil parang nagsasaboy ka lang ng pusali sa sarili mo na inaakala mong isang imburnal ng nakapandidiring baho ng mga katulad mo..

    Matagal na nagdusa ang bansa dahil kay Marcos, Enrile, at Ramos.
    Huwag natin silang bigyang ng pagkakataong yurakan muli ang Pilipinas.

      Marcos at Enrile pahirap talaga mga yan. Pero si steady Eddie Ramos ok yan. Timo pinaka less controversial yung admin nya. Hindi perfect. But less problematic.

    Having freedom to say, think and write are the greatest accomplishments of Edsa I. Let us honor those who died and fought to resist and destroy Marcos Martial Law! Democracy is better than anything else!

    EDSA event should not be taken for granted. We should consider it as a great day. A day not only of liberation from dictatorship but also of a rare experience, how and what change we can achieve if people from all walks of life become united to overcome an oppressive and tyrannical regime.This is the day when with one voice people shouted aloud: SOBRA NA, TAMA NA, PALITAN NA!!!

      It was suppose to be great but the late Cory flubbed the opportunity by kowtowing her relatives. And squatters made a giant leap with her in their illegal occupation of government properties. This is the truth.

    What is there to celebrate, the oligarchy form of government? EDSA has lost its meaning and we got nothing to celebrate!

    • Ding

      so stay inside…you have nothing to celebate…the EDSA celebration is to commemorate the people’s triumph overthe evils of people like you…you were the villain in the celebration and the people were the victors…so, indeed you have nothing to celebrate, your memories in here are only painful memories for you, Maldito.

  • humabon

    It’s the 27th People Power Revolution Anniversary & the sincere one… EDSA 2 not included… blah, blah, blah…

  • billy gunner

    the international community looked up to the philippines during the time of marcos. when cory assumed power, it’s all downhill from thereon. as they say, history is written by victors so what the oligarchs did was rewrote history and branded marcos the ultimate evil despite his material contributions. worst, the oligarchs became the “still small voice” when the constitution was drafted. no wonder said constitution became their weapon in monopoloizing everything in the marketplace. the edsa anniversary was just a victory for the oligarchs!

    Yellow means cowardice. A song reminds us of this. Nhoynhoy certainly belongs to the color for his absence of political will. He’s diffident.

    Aksya nanaman sa pera ng bayan.

    Even the sky turns yellow now. That can’t be good. Yellow doesn’t really mean anything as far as the PH is concerned. It is just one of those fixations of Pnoy. And he is just trying hard to convert everything and everyone into yellow. He also tries to associate it with his governance and the PH democracy. But truly, there is nothing to it but a color. EDSA 1 was a significant event for all the Filipinos because it was an event that involved majority of the citizens, it was a victory of the people, hence, people power. It doesn’t have to be associated with anyone or anything but the Filipino people.

    It totally appears that PNoy is using this platform to spread yellow to promote his Team PNoy candidate bets. This celebration should not be a time to spotlight PNoy and his colors…it should be a celebration by and for the Filipino people.
