“Any statement regarding a “fake EDSA” could possibly have been mine,” she wrote in her Facebook page early Monday, February 27.

Marcos was referring to an article published by the Inquirer about the rally that decried the attempts to “destabilized the Duterte administration.”

The report also stated that the rally was made possible at the request of Marcos herself.

“I personally experienced the profound impact [that] EDSA and People power had on our country,” she stated.

Inquirer also reported that rallyists exhorted protesters to “protecte the Duterte administration.”

During the rally, sociology professor Herdy Yumul said that Duterte is trying to “undo the problems fueled by the Yellows but there is a clear threat to his presidency.”

On the same day, rallies were held in Metro Manila by both supporters and detractors of the tough-talking president from Davao.
