Video on the infamous power grab in recent Philippine history.
The victim: the democratically elected President Joseph "Erap" Estrada.
The conspirators: Bogus President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and husband; Mike Arroyo; ex-President Fidel Ramos; Jaime Cardinal Sin; business elites; Armed Forces chief Angelo Reyes, Supreme Court chief justice Hilario Davide, etc.
The unwitting conspirators: the gullible mob of Edsa 2.
The greater victims: Philippine democracy and the millions who cast their votes in the 1998 Presidential elections.
According to the Honorable Cecilia Munoz-Palma, former Supreme Court Justice and chairperson of the 1987 Constitutional Commission, Edsa 2 caused the 1987 Constitution to suffer.
This happened when the ongoing impeachment trial of President Joseph Estrada, was unceremoniously disrupted and discontinued, and the issues on hand were brought to the streets. The rule of law was set aside and the rule of force prevailed..
