EDSA 31st Anniversary: Iba ‘Yan — A Music Video

Sa isang pambihirang pagkakataon, ipinamalas ng Pilipino sa mundo ang lakas ng pagkakaisa. Ang isang diktador at ang kanyang rehimen ng karahasan, pinatalsik ng sama-samang pagkilos ng sambayanan.

Ang demonstrasyon, naging mapayapa. Ang mga tangke, hinarangan ng nagkakapit-bisig na mamamayan. Ang mga baril, tinapatan ng mga bulaklak at rosaryo.

Ngayon, tatlumpu’t isang taon na ang nakalipas. Ang dating diktador, nakalibing sa himlayan ng mga bayaning nag-alay ng buhay sa ngalan ng pag-ibig sa bayan. Isang kabalintunaan na tila nangungutya sa kasaysayan.

Ang iba, kung ituring siya’y bayani. Pero bayan, iba ‘yan. Iba ‘yan.

[Entry 204, The SubSelfie Blog]

About the Music Video:

Iba ‘Yan is an apology, a reminder, and a call to action. It is an apology to our nation, its history, and the people who fought for the democracy of future generations. It is a reminder of the importance of knowing and immersing in one’s roots not just in a cultural aspect, but also in a historical lens.

It is a call to action to never be complacent in upholding our freedom, to not allow future generations to confuse “Marcos” and “bayani,” to make sure that people are well-informed and discerning enough to realize that Marcos is different – not a bayani, but “Iba ‘Yan.”

This video project is for the People Power Anniversary. It is to show people that millennials do not treat rallies as trends, and that our awareness and consciousness of national issues do not fade away as fads come and go. It aims to use a modern form of activism, one that incorporates the use of technology and the power of social media. If Marcos has his trolls, then we will troll those trolls.
