ATOM on 31st EDSA anniversary

The August Twenty One Movement (ATOM) pledges its active support and participation in the activities for the 31st anniversary of the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution.

What happened on that day was a magnificent moment in the life of our people that freed us from the shackles of martial law and gained the admiration of the whole world. Kaugnay nito, nananawagan kami sa lahat na lumahok sa pag gunita ng okasyong ito. Ating bigyan ng panibagong sigla ang higit tatlong dekada ng pagkakaibigan at pagkakaisa na dulot ng inaasam na demokratikong pamumuhay.

However, our celebration should keep us constantly on guard against the return of despotic rule, and reject moves that tread the path of authoritarianism which include   treatment of basic human rights and   disregard for established legal processes. 

But a mere 31 years after that blissful day in our history,  our people are once again crying – this time out of anger and frustration amid signs that the Marcos regime has reared its ugly and fearsome head..
