“Nawa’y magsilbing tanda sa ating lahat na sa bawat hamon at unos na ating harapin, siyang may kaakibat na kapayapaan, paghilom, at pagbangon (May this serve as a lesson to us that every challenge and storm we face, there come peace, healing, and resurrection),” NYC wrote on its Facebook page.

“Patuloy ang ating pagpupugay sa mga walang sawang lumalaban para sa bayan (We continue to pay tribute to those who are fighting for the country),” it added.

The EDSA Revolution was a series of protests, mostly in Metro Manila, from Feb. 22 to 25 to remove late dictator Ferdinand Marcos from power.

It eventually led to the departure of Marcos, ending his 20-year presidential term and the restoration of democracy in the Philippines.
