Bloggers Action Week: Bloggers remember People Power 2

Kasama ako sa EDSA2!On the weekend of Jan. 19-20, we remember People Power 2.

Do you remember watching the rallies and the impeachment trial that was like a telenovela? Did you receive and forward jokes and the “Go 2 Edsa” message to all the people in your phonebook? Did you come to Edsa Shrine (or the public plazas nationwide) with your family, friends, schoolmates and officemates? Did you take photos? Did you make your own placards? Did you join the exciting march to Mendiola that signaled the victory for the uprising? Do you remember what you felt, and the big dreams and aspirations we all had for our country?

Mark your calendars:
Bloggers Kapihan 3.0 Event
Jan. 19, 2:00-5:00 pm
Kape Tasyo (Freedom Bar)
Anonas, Quezon City

Seven years — yes, seven years — have passed since the four days that redefined People Power culminated in the ouster of the president with the biggest electoral mandate in Philippine history and we in Bloggers Kapihan invite you to remember. Just answer these questions, post memorabilia like photos and videos. Simply put, we want you to act by picking up a pen or going to the computer to tell your story, your version of what happened on Jan. 16-20 and your dreams for the country.

Others for instance, may choose to fast forward to 2008 and assess what has happened to the country seven years since People Power 2. Were we betrayed? Were our efforts wasted by some persons who benefited from it? Is it a national failure, or a warning that a similar fate may befall the incumbent?

To make this all worthwhile and useful to ourselves and the world, BK will open a special website at http://peoplepower2.bloggerskapihan.com (please don’t forget to link to it and this post) where we will put your posts and feature the really good ones. Let this be our humble contribution to reviving our pride in ourselves as a people, and to inspiring all of us never to lose hope for the only country we can call our own.

Don’t let others to rewrite People Power 2 as if it meant nothing. We made history in 2001 and now’s a good time to remember and to write it the way we saw and see it.

  1. Anton, they can share their thoughts on the matter. Or,

    Others for instance, may choose to fast forward to 2008 and assess what has happened to the country seven years since People Power 2. Were we betrayed? Were our efforts wasted by some persons who benefited from it? Is it a national failure, or a warning that a similar fate may befall the incumbent?

  2. shari, thanks for replying to Anton’s query. the suggestion of Ederic, as you quoted, gives some people the chance to assess where we’ve gone to since seven years back. 🙂

  4. Anton: Magandang pagkakataon ito upang makakuha ng mga impormasyon mula sa mga taong nanguna sa ikalawang EDSA. 🙂 Hindi naman kailangan na sumama ka mismo sa rally.
