Coordinated protests to mark Edsa 1

From the Malaya:

THE United Opposition yesterday said it would offer a thanksgiving mass at the Ninoy Aquino monument in Makati City on Monday, the 22nd anniversary of the 1986 Edsa Revolution.

Various militant organizations are also planning "nationally coordinated" protest actions on Monday.

They will not be allowed to use any portion of the 24-kilometer Edsa for their activities, according to the Metro Manila Development Authority, but they may use the People Power Monument in the White plains area, said MMDA chairman Bayani Fernando.

Fernando said any activity that will hinder traffic flow on Edsa from Monumento to Baclaran will be prohibited.
