People Power Day Philippines
25-25 February
event image
People Power Anniversary is a nationwide observance and school holiday in the Philippines each year.

This event holds a special place in the hearts of many Filipinos as they remember a revolution that restored democracy in the Philippines in 1986. Many people celebrate People Power Anniversary by wearing yellow, which was the official color of the LABAN party, the rival political group that challenged the government back in 1986. Much of the festivities and activities occur in the city of Manila, particularly Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA), a major public road where people flock to visit. Activities include programs such as church masses and concerts. Yellow symbolizes the revolution and also is the official color of the LABAN (fight) political party. The “L” sign which is formed by one’s index finger and thumb is another symbol of the LABAN party and the people’s defiance of the authoritarian government at the time of the revolution.
