Did you know that … The People Power Monument was built to commemorate the events of the 1986 People Power Revolution.
The 1986 People Power Revolution gathered millions of Filipinos from all walks of life to march along Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), the main artery of Metro Manila, to end the dictatorship of President Ferdinand E. Marcos and begin a new era marked by true freedom and democracy. This spirit of the movement was not confined to Manila; it manifested through non-violent demonstrations staged in different cities nationwide—it was a revolution marked by its peaceful means, led by a nation united to reclaim liberty.
The events of February 25, 1986, altered the course of our nation’s history; it showcased to the world the remarkable resolve of the Filipino people. It heralded an era of peace. Over the years, we have continued to remember this momentous occasion by honoring the sacrifices of all those who fought the dictatorship.
The monument is located on the corner of EDSA & White Plains Avenue in Barangay Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City, Philippines.
It was made by Eduardo Castrillo in 1993.
Today, Feb.25, 2021 marks the 35th year Anniversary of the People Power Revolution.
