My experience with Edsa started at the MIA when Ninoy Aquino arrived from exile in the US on August 21, 1983. My cousin and I were the ones representing the Bohol opposition party. I did not see the shooting of Ninoy but I can relate everything what happened outside and inside the airport terminal building.

In my opinion Edsa one was not spontaneous but there were people who organized the rallies through the phones. The issue about the shortage of commodities is not true. The people who started to spread the issue about shortages were the ATOM of Butch Aquino. Most of them are junior  executives in Makati who are anti Marcos. They knew the forecast of production. Whenever a certain product in a certain month will slow down in production they will immediately spread the words that there is a shortage. People will get scared and they will start panic buying... creating an artificial shortages.

I should know this because I was a member of the ATOM group.

I come to realize that Edsa I and II were not good for the political and economic health of our nation. It created uncertainty that Filipinos are looking for works abroad because the Philippines has lesser oportunity today than during the time of Marcos.

During the time of Marcos local employments are available to the people because the government encouraged investors to open EPZA's in Bataan, Cebu and Baguio. The manufacture of computer chips in Asia started in Philippines but investors shied away because there were many political extremists who sabotaged their investment in our country.

Ms da binsi,

Tinood na nga si Marcos nakakuarta sa panahon nija... pero bisan ug kinsay imong ibutang sa puesto naay panguarta. Dili mawa na bisan asa sa tibook kalibutan kay dili man ta mga santo. Kung manguarta dili unta i-apil ang kuarta sa lungsod.

Usa sa mga hinungdan nganong gi declare ang Martial Law tungod kay sa wa pa ma-deklara ang Martial Law ang mga negosyante sa una ug mga tawo sa gobierno maoy klarong nangawat sa kaban sa lungsod. Mas dautan! Hunahuna-a ni nga kita "classified as an agricultural country" busa ang atong abot gikan sa copra ug asukal adto gyud unta idapat sa kinahanglanon sa tawo. Apan dili man maka-abot sa mga tawo kay tungod dili man mobayad sa hustong buhis ang mga negosyante kay ang copra ila mang gi-smuggle, boot pasabot nga pinaagi sa pagkarga ug copra sa mga hilit ug tago nga mga pantalan labi na sa Mindanao ilang ma-export ang copra without proper documentation. Ang nahibaw ini kadto ra pung mga tawo sa gobierno nga apil sa bahin. Mao ni gitawag ug technical smuggling. Mao pung sistemaha sa BIR ug custom.

Mao usab sa exportation of sugar. Kanang storya sa mga Ilonggo bahin anang giingon ug; "sa amon to ginapiko ginapala ang kuarta may sigarilyo ka ba jan to"... tinood na kay pagapikohon nila ang yuta aron itanum ang tubo ug ang abot nga asukal gipala sa mga nagtrabaho didto sa bodega. Sila mga "sakada" wa jamo-jamo'y kuarta pero ang ilang mga amo nga gitawag ug "sugar planters" maoy sige ug palit ug bag-ong modelo sa awto kada tuig.

Kining copra ug asukal maoy gisaligan sa gobierno nga makakuha ta ug dollar nga boot pasabot "cash crop" nato ni. Sa pag-declare ug Martial Law mao ning duha ka industriya ang gipakanaugan ug "Monopoly Law" ni Marcos. Para ang duha ka "cash crop industries" dili maka-ipsut sa buhis sa gobierno. Ang gihimo ni Marcos nga "Government Controlled Corporation lang ang mahimong mag-export.

Tungod ining paagiha naglaway intawon ang mga sugar ug coconut planters nga gahimo sila ug paagi nga mapukan si Marcos. Usa sila sa nagpasiugda sa people power. Ilang gi-awhag ang katawhan nga dautan si Marcos aron mapukan.

I was just getting ready to start my 4th year of high school back in my home country of states.

I remember watching it all day repeatedly on the news I felt very sad for what had happened.

The other day I went to the plaza for the anniversary day celebration of EDSA and it was so mingaw. I am sure I recall one of the speeches at the event said that one of the Vice presidential candidates for the May 10 election, that their father was connected to be one of the hench men of Ninoy Aquino.

I will never forget looking on the TV and watching the news on TV and looking at the news in the paper and the turmoil surrounding everything on the day the man who fought for Democratic freedom was shot down......You would not think that anyone cared about such a freedom today as maybe about close to 40 turned out for the event and the candle lighting ceremony for freedom of democracy turn out was around 10-12 persons.

I watched the presentation from start to finish and learned many more things regarding the history and how the people reacted to a very horrible sittuation and time during the time when things here were under martail law.

I hope to see a better turn out next year as the freedom for democracy banner was unveiled the other night during the event and was said that it will adorn the office walls at the freedom for democracy headquarters.

The true nature of Edsa I and II is a naked grabbed of power. It is a feeling of pride to some people to say that they were at Edsa as part of history during those four days in February when they toppled Marcos. 

In those four days in February it shows the influence media had on the people when they reversed the true meaning of democracy. The media wanted us to believe that Edsa is democratic and some of the people, I believe they are the minority... like cattle led into the slaughterhouse gave their all out faith and support of Edsa. 

The propaganda spun by the media that Edsa one is the restoration of our democracy is purely hogwash because... if you look at the people who led to restore our democracy like the late Cory Aquino and Cardinal Sin, the military, the academe and the elite of Manila are almost the same people who ousted Erap from power. And they let the ordinary people who do not even know the implication and meaning of a political issue to protest in the street for justice and democracy.

The late Cory Aquino the leader of the first Edsa did not understand what she was doing when she led the people again in the ousting of Erap. She is reverred as the restorer of democracy. Erap as a post Marcos president is a product of the belief in Edsa. The ousting of Erap from power is contrary to the tenet of democracy therefore the idea that Cory Aquino restored our democracy is a misnomer that will lead us to believe that Edsa I and II are all political maneuvers to advance their own selfish interest... which is the greed for power.

Ang mga tawo nga moingon nga dautan si Marcos mao tong mga tawo diin iyang gitang-tangan ug mga kagawasan sa pagsaway pinaagi sa "press", kadtong mga kontra partido sa pulitika pananglitan si Ninoy Aquino, kadto pung mga negosyante nga iyang gikuhaan ug gahum sa "exportation" ug kadtong gitawag ug mga "political romantics" nga mogakos lang ug mga ideya sa pulitika bisan ug wa nila masabti ug husto ug unsa... sama pananglit sa mga komunista.

Kini silang tanan suma total wa pa ni sa kamajingking sa kadaghanon sa mga tawo nga nabulahan sa Martial Law ni Marcos. Oo dihay sayop nga nahimo ang mga sundalo sa pagpasunod sa "Martial Law" pero dili pasabot nga ang ilang sayop makalapas sa mga maayong tinguha sa "New Society". Si Marcos namili lang unsay iyang himoon sa pagpalampos sa nasud; pinaagi ba sa pagdapig niya sa mga dagkong higante sa negosyo sama pananglit sa mga Lopezes, Roceses, Lupas ug uban pa... o adto ba siya modapig sa katawhan diin mas daghan ang nahimutang?

Ang gidapigan mao ang katawhan ug usa sa mga tawo nga iyang gisaligan nga mo-amoma ug motabang sa katawhan mao ni si Danding Cojuangco.

Atong hisgutan ni si Danding kay "controversial" nga pagkatawo sa diha nga napukan na si Marcos. Gawas sa mga Marcoses siya ang wa undangi ug gukod sa gobierno ni Cory pinaagi sa PCGG tungod kay matud pa; ang pagka adunahan ni Danding gikan kuno sa kuarta sa gobierno.

Sa akong panglantaw sakto lang nga mahimong adunahan siya [pwera ang katuman nga kasina] kay ngano man... tungod kay sija ang nag-mugna ug mga paagi diin niya natabangan ang yano nga Pilipino sama pananglit sa mga nagtanum ug lubi. Iyang gimugna ang Cocofed nga nagabaod nga kung ikaw nagtanum ug lubi unya nagbaligya ka ug kopras mahimo kang miembro sa gimugna nga kapunungan. Ang mga miembro kung magbaligya ug kopras katlian sa Cocofed ug 0.55 ka centabos sa kada usa ka gatos ka kilong kopras.

Kini gitawag ug "coconut levy" pero wa mosupak ang mga tawo nga nagbaligya lang ug kopras sa 200, 300 o 500 kilos kada ani. Kadtong hingsupak ug taman hangtud sa ilang bukog mao tong mga nagbaligya ug tonelada-toneladang timbang sa ilang kopras kada ani sama pananglit ni kanhing senador sa Pilipinas Emmanuel Pelaez. Sila nga dagko ug kalubin-an maoy dagko pud ug hulog sa "coconut levy". Mao ni sila ang mga tawo nga nangampa ug nagbaton ug nga hugot nga kapungot sa gihimo ni Danding kay dut sa ilang kahiladman tua hingpatigbabaw ang tumang kasina kay kuno kining "coconut levy" tua lang kuno masud sa bulsa ni Danding.

Kining Cocofed man gud dili man kay "brain child" ni Danding kundi iya ning gi-awat nga "cooperative system" sa Australia. Si Danding nahibaw ining sistemaha tungod kay ang uban niyang mga negosyo naa sa Australia mahimutang. Sa Australia man gud tanang linya sa negosyo anaay kapunungan nga kooperatiba sama pananglit sa gatas, harina, baka, karnero, kabayo, prutas, klase-klaseng mina ug uban pa. Nakita ni Danding nga malampuson busa iyang gi-awat.

Apan wa motan-aw ang mga kritiko ni Danding sa kauswagan kundi tua sila motan-aw sa tawo nga hing asenso nga pasanginlan nila dayon nga k******n sa kuarta sa lungsod bisan ug wala sila'y igong kapasikaran sa ilang pasangil. Boot pasabot tomu-tomu lang ug hisgut labi na ang atong "media".

Kining gi-awat ni Danding sa Australia moingon ba ang mga puno-an sa mga mantalaan sa Pilipinas nga k******n pud ang mga Australyano tungod ining napuro na sila kooperatiba?
