World joins Pinoys in commemorating EDSA 
The world is joining the Filipinos in the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the 1986 bloodless EDSA People Power Revolution that inspired other nations worldwide to uphold democracy.

In separate statements, leaders of the Federal Republic of Germany, Republic of Korea, Czech Republic and Republic of Chile extended their congratulations to the Filipino people for regaining their freedom through peaceful means.

German President Christian Wulff said the EDSA People Power was an inspiration for the Germans to stand up and unify for peace and freedom.

“Only a few months later, the Berlin Wall came down and we Germans were able to make our unified state a reality in peace and freedom,” Wulf said, adding that recent developments in the Arab world “demonstrate that people’s desire for freedom is universal and remains as strong as ever.”

Chilean President Sebastian Pinera Echenique lauded the Filipinos for their solidarity in achieving democracy through peaceful means.

Czech Foreign Affairs Minister Karel Schwarzenberg said the February 1986 revolution “meant a historical landmark on the road to democracy of your country and inspiration for many others.”

Korean President Lee Myung-bak said the People Power of 1986 offered hope that the vision for the development and growth of true democracy can be realized by the people in Asia despite of hardships and adversity.

“The revolution will continue to be remembered as an exemplary example for people around the world who crave freedom and democracy,” he added.

The democratic winds created by the 1986 People Power Revolution swept throughout the world: a year after the EDSA uprising, South Koreans challenged strongman former general Chun Doo-hwa which eventually led to democratic reforms; Chile’s Pinochet lost his iron grip in power in 1989.
