EDSA I celebration to be held in Cebu

There’s an explanation for the "relocation."

ABS-CBNnews.com reports: "This year’s anniversary of the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution will be held in Cebu, which, according to Presidential Communications Secretary Sonny Coloma, was an important opposition stronghold during the tumultuous martial law period."


The "relocation" of the February 25 celebration is due to President Benigno Aquino III’s decision to visit the country’s disaster-hit provinces instead."


The report noted: "Prior to the celebration in Cebu, Aquino will visit Cateel in Davao Oriental, one of the places severely affected by Typhoon Pablo in 2011. Next, he’ll visit Loon in Bohol to check on the condition of the residents four months after the deadly earthquake hit the province. After his Cebu City stopover, the president will head to Bantayan Island then go on to Guiuan in Eastern Samar, Tanauan in Leyte, as well as Tacloban City."
