An indignation rally against Charter change will be held on the 38th anniversary of the Edsa People Power Revolution at the Bacolod Public Plaza on Sunday afternoon, February 25.

The People’s Coalition for Democracy Negros (PCDN), whose convenors are San Carlos Bishop Gerardo Alminaza, Bishop Virgilio Amihan Jr. of the Iglesia Filipina Independiente Diocese of Negros Occidental and former governor Rafael Coscolluela, is spearheading the protest.

The Edsa People Power Revolution toppled the oppressive rule of Ferdinand Marcos Sr. through the power of the people, they said in their call for the public to join the rally.

“The revised Constitution safeguarded the Filipino people’s interest based on the
experience during Marcos Sr.’s dictatorship. We have proven that through our unity and
strength, we could change our country into a better one”, they said.

Today “the country is again facing the threat of selling our national sovereignty to foreign countries and snatching our civil liberties,” they added.

They cited the attempt to amend the country’s 1987 Constitution and erase the history of People Power.

They said the PCDN was born to respond to the need to educate, enlighten and convey the real intentions why Marcos Jr.’s administration is going to have Charter Change.

The assembly time of the people’s indignation rally at the South Capitol Road in Bacolod will be at 1 p.m. followed by a march to the Bacolod Public Plaza.

Speakers from the coalition will talk about pressing issues faced by the country and the EDSA anniversary, they said.

“We must expose and oppose any moves by any means of Cha-cha”, they said.*
