Amid the nCoV scare, a group is planning to organize a mass demonstration in EDSA Shrine on February 22, 2020, and they’re hoping that the said gathering could pressure President Rodrigo Duterte to leave his office.

Enzo Recto, one of the most vocal netizens about the ‘People Power 3’ event said that they’re a member of a group called ‘BUNYOG’ which means ‘United’.

According to him, they’re already tired of President Duterte’s performance and expressed dissatisfaction with the action of the government during the Taal volcano erption and failing to prevent the spread of 2019-nCoV in the Philippines.

“Nang mag-erupt ang Taal, mas private sector ang tumugon sa pangangailangan ng mga tao. Ngayong pumutok ang krisis sa coronavirus, mas inisip pa ng gobyerno ang ikakasama ng loob ng China kung iba-ban ang mga Intsik sa pagpasok sa bansa, kaysa sa sariling kapakanan at kaligtasan ng sariling mamamayan.” 

“Wala na talaga. Failure of governance na ito. Hindi lang si Duterte, lahat ng sangay ng gobyerno, at lahat ng mga pulitiko ay wala nang silbi sa bansa at sa mga tao. Si Secretary Duque at ang Department of Health, hindi makapagrekomenda ng pag-ban sa pagpasok ng mga Intsik sa bansa dahil takot na baka magalit si Duterte. Ang mga congressman at mga senador, mga walang masabi. Busog na busog sa pork barrel at mga insertions sa kaa-approve pa lang na 2020 budget. Ang AFP at PNP tahimik rin lang sa mga nangyayari. Lahat ayaw banggain si Duterte, kahit alam na nilang napakaseryoso na ng sitwasyon dahil napakaraming Intsik na ang nasa bansa at patuloy pa ang pagdagsa.” he added.

“Kung wala na silang mga silbi, panahon nang bawiin ng mga tao ang kapangyarihang pinahiram sa kanila. “Sovereignty resides in the people and all government authority emanates from them.” #OustDuterteNow! #PeoplePowerNa!” he also said.

Recto also made a lengthy message to convince everyone to join the ‘People Power 3’ to express their opposition against the current government.

In his other post, Recto also showed that other groups already expressed their desire to join the said event.

It seems that Recto’s social media promotion is effective as the news already reached other pro-opposition groups like “Senator Trillanes Power”.

Recto also has a message to the supporters of President Duterte who downplayed their planned event.

The Palace is not yet releasing a comment on the said plan of the pro-opposition groups in their attempt to organize People Power.

People Power is a well-known event in the Philippines where people are gathering to oust the sitting President in a peaceful way.

The previous people power events successfully removed two chief executives, former Presidents Ferdinand Marcos and Joseph Estrada.
