EDSA Revolution Anniversary 2019

Monday, February 25, 2019

People Power Revolution is an annual event every February 22nd through 25th in the Philippines, which commemorates the peaceful demonstrations that occurred on those dates in 1986 and led to the overthrow of the corrupt rule of President Ferdinand Marcos.

People Power Revolution is celebrated as the time when democracy was restored in the Philippines and is remembered as "the revolution that surprised the world".

The name of Marcos has remained synonymous with corruption to the present time, though there have been some efforts at historical revisionism.

The revolution is also known as the "Yellow Revolution" and the "EDSA Revolution" due to the color worn by the original protesters and the street, Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue, where the protests took place.
