Edsa 26: Anong Taya Mo Para Sa Pilipinas Natin?

February 22-25, 2012 mark the 26th anniversary of EDSA People Power Revolution. Revolving on the theme “EDSA 26: Anong Taya Mo Para Sa Pilipinas Natin?”, this year’s celebration is a call to action for all Filipinos to participate in nation building. The Edsa People Power Commission (EPPC) has also come up with activities on February 25, 2012 which aim to highlight the spirit of volunteerism and Bayanihan.

The President will lead the flag-raising rites at the People Power Monument and the traditional “Salubungan” on Edsa. Expected to join him are Vice President Jejomar Binay, former President Fidel Ramos, Ochoa, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Francis Tolentino, Metro Manila mayors and EPPC commissioners.

In the afternoon, Mr. Aquino will be in Trece Martires to turn over 21,000 houses to soldiers. According to the EPPC, this event is symbolic of the partnership of the military and civilians during the Edsa Revolution.

In Malacañang, Executive Secretary Ochoa issued Memorandum Circular No. 27 s. 2012, ordering all government officials and employees to take part in the Edsa anniversary activities.

PILIIN MO ANG PILIPINAS
Angeline Quinto & Vince Bueno

Minsa’y natuwa ang Maylikha
Pitong libong pulo ang ginawa
Mga hiyas na inilatag
Sa mala-sutlang dagat

At ang bayan Niyang pinili
Nasa dulo ng bahaghari
kaya’t isanlibong kulay
Nang-aakit, kumakaway

Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Kapuluang kwintas ng perlas
Piliin mo, yakapin mo
kayamanan nyang likas, Piliin mo ang Pilipinas

Kasayahang di mapatid
Ramdam sa bawat awit
sa masisiglang indak
mga puso’y lumilipad

Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Kapuluang kwintas ng perlas
Piliin mo, yakapin mo
kayamanan nyang likas, Piliin mo ang Pilipinas

At ang ngiti ng Maykapal
Taglay ng bawat nilalang
May lambing na dumuduyan
Sa buong Pakiramdam

Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Kapuluang kwintas ng perlas
Piliin mo, yakapin mo
kayamanan nyang likas, Piliin mo ang Pilipinas

Dito ay itinadhana
Araw, buwan at mga tala
Ganap na magniningning
Kailanma’y di magdidilim

If you know what i’m talking about
Suitcase in the house with the party sound
First choice, first love -if ya’ll ask the crowd
“WE GONNA CHOOSE PHILIPPINES”
Come on shout it out
Everybody’s gonna dance to this
I see the whole world party in the Philippines
Philippines now with Angeline
Quinto, Bueno-on the TV screen hey!
This is like a samba
From Rio to Manila will be hittin’ on drums ya
Shake shake it off on beats of life
No more drama
And shout: WE GONNA CHOOSE PHILIPPINES
No one other
The world keeps talking
But we aint walkin’
We keep on dancing
That’s how we rock it
7,107 islands of beauty
See pieces of heaven

Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas

Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Kapuluang kwintas ng perlas
Piliin mo, yakapin mo
kayamanan nyang likas, Piliin mo ang Pilipinas

Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Kapuluang kwintas ng perlas
Piliin mo, yakapin mo
kayamanan nyang likas, Piliin mo ang Pilipinas

Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas
Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas

“I want to show to those who deprive people the right to love of country, that when we know how to sacrifice ourselves for our duties and convictions, death does not matter if one dies for those one loves – for his country and for others dear to him.”
