MANILA, Philippines – The EDSA 2.22.2015 Coalition is set to stage a rally on February 22, 2015 to call for President Noynoy Aquino (PNoy) and his cabinet to step down from office.
The rally to oust PNoy is scheduled on February 22, 2015, the same date that the People’s Power Revolution started that placed PNoy’s mother, Cory Aquino, in Malacanang.
Now, her son, PNoy, is receiving tremendous criticisms for the way he has handled the latest debacle of his government, the massacre of 44 Special Armed Forces (SAF) commandos by rebels in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.
Various groups from the academe and religious sector have demanded for Aquino’s resignation. A number of Netizens trooped online to express how they felt about his alleged incompetence.
Although, Ka Eli Soriano, the leader of the religious group, “Dating Daan” trended #NoyNoyPaRin on Twitter for a few days, the clamor for his resignation is longer and more consistent.
Recently, the Philippine president met anew with the families of the Fallen44 to dialogue with them. His answers to their questions, however, were not what they expected.
The government claimed that the dialogue has gone well; however, statements from the victims appeared to negate this.
One of the SAF windows expressed how dismayed she was of how PNoy responded to their questions. Reportedly, many of the SAF’s families were not satisfied with his vague answers.
Netizens criticized how Aquino mentioned the death of his father amidst the misery of the grieving families. Surely, the death of his father is not the issue in the recent SAF massacre.
Should the EDSA rally succeed, a coalition government will be established, and it will be headed by Chief Justice Maria Sereno.
Apparently, the Supreme Court doesn’t want to butt in because, according to them, it’s political.
The palace, though, has reiterated that PNoy Aquino won’t step down, but will wait for his term to be completed.
If you support this coalition, join the rally on February 22, 2015 at EDSA, and help the people establish a new leader.
