Freedom Tour (Part II) - 25th EDSA People Power Anniversary

The Freedom Tour tells the story of the revolution. This tour covered the following areas: La Salle Greenhills, The EDSA Shrine, The People Power Monument and Club Filipino.

The third Stop was the People Power Monument, a towering monument along EDSA. It is sculptured by Eduardo Castrillo in honor of the Filipinos who marched on the streets of EDSA to fight against the dictatorship of President Ferdinand Marcos. 




The highlight of this activity was the re-enactment of "Salubungan" , where Filipino citizens headed by Butz Aquino and the military force led by then Vice-Chief of Staff Fidel V. Ramos and Juan Ponce Enrile joined hand in hand against Marcos regime. People unite towards nation building and it was a bloodless revolution.

Performed as Cardinal Sin.
