HIGHLIGHTS: EDSA 28 (Kapit-bisig tungo sa pagbangon)
MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III celebrates the 28th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution by visiting provinces hardest hit by deadly calamities in 2013.
Moving away from the tradition of celebrating it in EDSA itself, this year's EDSA celebration themed Kapit-bisig Tungo sa Pagbangon (Together towards progress) will be held in Cebu - a place also significant during the Revolution according to Malacañang.
Coloma said Cebu was important because it was "the bailiwick of the opposition during the time of Marital Law and where former President Corazon Aquino stayed when the military turned against President Marcos on February 22, 1986."
The Palace explained the move to Cebu is an attempt to reduce traffic on EDSA where various road projects are already taking place.
