#ThewRap: Videos you need to watch this week, February 20-26, 2017

Hello! Here's a round-up of videos from the past week that you need to watch










Dear Rappler reader,

Never before have we seen an EDSA anniversary like this one, 31 years after rallies and rebelling soldiers overthrew a dictator.

The so-called "yellow army" held a rally in broad daylight, as Duterte forces chose the night for fiery speeches. The two forces even clashed in a confrontation.

EDSA 31 was preceded by an equally historical event – the first high-profile politician Duterte sent to jail – Senator Leila de Lima.

Below are the videos from the past 7 days that we think you shouldn't miss.
