Senator Hontiveros Files Bill To Change EDSA to KIDSA

IMG_4061MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippines Senator Risa Hontiveros is on a high roll these days, basking on her three minutes of fame following the killing of Kian Delos Santos in a recent drug operations by the police in Caloocan City.

The Akbayan lady senator was among the first opposition politicians to visit the wake of the slain teenager.  Then, she placed some minor (and not so minor) witnesses under her custody.

Now, Hontiveros has filed a Senate bill that would rename Epiphanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) to KIDSA — KIAN DELOS SANTOS AVENUE.

The senator said this would be the appropriate thing to do to honor the memory of Kian and to remind the Filipino people of the consequences of the Duterte administration’s war on drugs.

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Hontiveros admitted that the spirit of EDSA which ousted Ferdinand E. Marcos and catapulted the yellow oligarchy to political power is fading away.

“It is therefore necessary to rename the avenue to something more relevant to the times, and something that the yellows can rally behind,” she said.
