EDSA People Power

No day will pass that you won’t encounter congested traffic on your way from the suburbs to the city. It’ll be a a wondrous day if there is a chance that the roads are clear which only happens when it’s a non-working holiday or pure luck.

Today, however, the traffic is more congested than usual. The sudden rerouting of the main road EDSA (Epifanio delos Santos Avenue) clogged the other roads that lead to and through it. It is because because of the Edsa People Power Commemorative Celebration this afternoon, where supposedly 30,000 people are coming so they have to close 1 of 4 lanes of EDSA. Which may I add, the organizers didn’t inform the public, or the traffic authorities at least.

And to think that for this same reason Friday (February 25) was declared a non-working holiday. Why couldn’t they do the celebrations then, so they won’t delay people who need to get to work early?

The whole meaning we celebrate this event will be put to waste, simply because people don’t coordinate very well. And the commuters now will look at the event with hate and disgust just because of this hassle they went through.


At least this changed the pace how I go to work every morning.
