• Lakas ng Sambayanan (Cory Aquino's People Power [CAPP])


Lakas ng Sambayanan (Cory Aquino's People Power) is a coordinated movement of cause-oriented organizations and alliances which were active in the campaign for President Aquino, watched the polls, initiated protest demonstrations post-February 7 and participated in the historic barricades of February. The movement believes that the February 1987 popular revolution was a political act that involved the seizure of state power by the people. To become a social revolution, social relations and social structures need to be transformed. Remnants of the old authoritarian order need to be dismantled to pave way for the creation of a new social order. To deepen democracy and create a just society, the participation of the people must be effectively encouraged and harnessed.
