The Inquirer editorial today condemns the violent option that is a military coup, but reserves most of its firepower for the President’s declaration of a state of national emergency.
the declaration is deeply, maddeningly anti-Edsa People Power. Yesterday, when it was still only a few hours old, it was used to justify the violent dispersal of a crowd that had gathered to mark the Edsa People Power anniversary, and to arrest some of the demonstrators. Here, indisputably, is proof that the Arroyo administration has turned its back on Edsa People Power.
I share that view.
