MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It was meant to be a reprise of the thousands upon thousands of people who came out to Manila’s streets to mourn the murder of Senator Ninoy Aquino, as well as the millions who took to EDSA during the People Power Revolution that ousted the late Ferdinand E. Marcos.

The Liberal Party and the rest of the groups opposed to President Rodrigo Duterte had hoped to make this special holiday an opportunity to display Yellow power as a prequel to the ouster of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

And so it happened. EDSA was a virtual parking lot on this Ninoy Aquino Day, a traffic nightmare never before experienced by Metro Manila commuters.

No, it wasn’t because a million pro-Aquino and anti-Duterte people rallied at the EDSA monument.  Rather, it was because of heavy rains that marked the holiday.
