My dear people, this is a very critical time for our country. (Defense) Minister (Juan Ponce) Enrile and General Ramos have expressed their position with respect to the legitimacy of the [Marcos] government.

We appeal to the people to pray for a just and peaceful resolution of this crisis.

You spoke as a people in the last election, expressing your preference for peaceful change. I ask you now to be calm and to be prepared to express again your power as a people.

Minister Enrile and those with him have appealed for food and expressions of support.

Those of you who wish to help should do so. In the meantime, continue to listen to Radio Veritas and I shall speak to you again. Let us pray together. Let us not allow a drop of blood to be shed. If we can solve this problem peacefully, that would be the best.
