Proposal to rename EDSA to Cory Aquino Avenue slammed by netizens

GMA News Online reports that Bohol Rep. Rene Lopez Relampagos filed House Bill (HB) 5422, which proposes to rename Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) to Cory Aquino Avenue.

GMA News Online reports that Bohol Rep. Rene Lopez Relampagos filed House Bill (HB) 5422, which proposes to rename Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) to Cory Aquino Avenue.

 

In his explanatory note, Relampagos wrote: "It would be but a fitting tribute to former President Corazon Aquino, woman of courage and valor, that EDSA-an avenue that became testament to the country's love of democracy, be named after her. One cannot think of the 1986 EDSA Revolution without thinking of Corazon Aquino."

 

However, GMA News Online observed: "Despite this, a large number of Pinoy Twittizens-including celebrities such as Tim Yap, Georgina Wilson, and Paolo Paraiso-refuse to have anything to do with the bill and expressed their disagreement openly online.  The topic became a Top Trend on Twitter late Wednesday afternoon (November 23), and continued to lead the list as of 6:30pm."

 

The report said that the proposal is "currently pending in the House of Representatives before the House Committee on Public Works and Highways."
