Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has called for another people power to put an end to the “era of darkness” perpetuated by President Duterte.
”Using politics of impunity, fear, hatred and death, Duterte has brought back the demons that EDSA and its heroes have triumphed over. Now, more than ever, we need another EDSA,” Trillanes wrote on Facebook during the 31st commemoration of the popular revolt last February 25.
He said Filipinos united to oust a dictator and restore democracy during the uprising in February 1986. Today, he said the commemoration of EDSA struggle and victory has become “more relevant as the country is again plunged into an era of darkness by Rodrigo Duterte.”
