The EDSA Revolution or known as the “Bloodless Revolution,” in which millions of Filipinos boldly came on Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) to hold a protest that ended former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr’s 21-years rule. Victims of martial law, human rights advocates, and campaigners also staged a protest, expressing their concern of the Marcoses reclaiming the monarchy.
Now Marcos Sr.’s son Bongbong Marcos Jr. is running for president. They urged Filipinos to vote no in the May elections for the dictator’s son Bongbong and his running mate, Duterte’s daughter Sara.
Despite his family’s history, Marcos’ namesake is expected to win the presidential race, according to polls. There were gross abuses of human rights and massive misappropriation of public finances under the clan patriarch’s two-decade reign. According to Amnesty International, 70,000 people were imprisoned, 34,000 were tortured, and 3,240 died as a result of martial law.
