Blog Action Day: The Real Heroes of EDSA

The Kabataan Partylist is inviting everyone to participate in the Blog Action Day this February 25, in commemoration of the EDSA Revolution that took place 24 years ago. More specifically, it celebrates the people who participated and made it happen, hence the title “The Real Heroes of EDSA”.

We may have been too young then or were not even born yet, but we can ask them to recount their tales of real-life heroism to us. What prompted them to join the uprising? What were their thoughts and feelings? What did they wear, eat, chant? How did it feel to be able to be surrounded by overwhelming unity and patriotism among millions of other heroes marching in the streets on those three historic days.

Blog Action Day posts linking to the announcement will be posted as early as 12 noon on Thursday. It’s interesting to see a partylist spearheading an online mass action this time.

October 8, 2009 | No Comments Yet

Bloggers Kapihan once again spearheads the Philippine version of Blog Action Day. It’s happening on October 15, with this year’s topic being Climate Change.

The theme is more relevant than ever with the onslaught brought about by Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng.

We cannot be apathetic or cynical. We as a people have the solemn duty to accept the reality of climate change, to study it, and to take a stand.

Bloggers Kapihan thus calls on Filipino bloggers to take time out on Oct. 15 to post your thoughts and aspirations, frustrations and hopes, photos, videos and stories, on climate change and how it affects our family, community, country and the globe, and how we wish to make things better.

Local organizations such as TXTPower, Kabataan Partylist, Kalikasan-People’s Network for the Environment, Agham, Computer Professionals Union, and Philippine Climate Watch Alliance all support this blogging event. Have a post ready by next week and grab the badge to put on your blog!
