‘No group owns People Power’ | Inquirer.net - February 25, 2017

No single person or group can claim credit for the 1986 Edsa People Power Revolution, President Rodrigo Duterte said on Friday, adding that the peaceful restoration of democracy was a showcase of Filipino unity and love of country.

Mr. Duterte, who skipped the muted, Palace-led commemoration of the revolution’s anniversary, called on Filipinos to make an objective assessment of what they have lost and what they have achieved 31 years after dictator Ferdinand Marcos was toppled from power and democracy was restored.

Mr. Duterte’s message for the Edsa anniversary was delivered by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea during the commemoration held in Camp Aguinaldo.

It was the first observance of the Edsa anniversary under the Duterte administration.
