Two days before the 32nd anniversary of the People Power Revolution that ousted the dictator President Ferdinand Marcos in 1986, thousands of students nationwide poured into the streets in a massive walkout to protest what they described as President Duterte’s “increasingly tyrannical rule.”
The Philippine National Police (PNP) will deploy nearly 2,000 of its personnel, 300 of whom will actually take part in Sunday’s celebration of the 32nd anniversary of the Edsa people power revolution.
