Philippines: State of rebellion - another attempt at people power

05/05/2001, Days of angry street demonstrations in the Philippines capital Manila culminated in an attack on the presidential palace in the early hours of May 1. After seven hours of battles with the police using teargas, water cannon and live ammunition, four people were dead, over 100 injured and hundreds more arrested. A state of rebellion – "two steps away from martial law" – was declared by the president, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. A little over three months earlier, on January 20, she herself had been sworn in to her post in a highly ‘unconstitutional’ ceremony on the streets of the capital after days of mass demonstrations called ‘People Power ll’. (See CWI pamphlet, January 2001).
CWI statement

Philippines: People power 2

24/01/2001, A corrupt and inept president - Joseph ’Erap’ Estrada of the Philippines - has been removed from power by a mass movement on the streets. This comes just months after the overthrow of Milosevic in Serbia and a year after the revolutionary events of Ecuador. Once again it has been demonstrated that action - especially mass action - can bring down governments.
