Ang Aking Kuwentong People Power 2

Kasama ako sa EDSA2!Para sa Blog Action Week ng Bloggers’ Kapihan, narito ang aking ambag. Pinaiksi at inayos na bersyon ito ng “Liham ng Tagumpay” na unang nalathala sa Mga Kuwentong People Power 2 section ng Tinig.com.

Enero 16, 2001, Martes

Galing ako sa isang meeting sa Makati noong gabing nagsimula ang EDSA People Power 2. Nasa meeting pa lang ako ay nagsimula nang magdatingan ang text messages tungkol sa labing-isang pangit. May magmumura — akala ko nga galit sa akin yung officemate ko na naunang nag-text–may nanggagalaiti, at kung anu-ano pa. Yung isang natanggap ko: “Remember the names of these senators; they betrayed the Filipino people: [name of the ugly senators].” That time medyo alumpihit na ako but since nasa meeting nga, wala akong magawa.

Later, nagtawag ako at nakibalita. Pero basically, naintindihan ko na na yun nga, hindi pinabuksan ang second envelope. Samantala, tuluy-tuloy ang mga text sa aking cellphone. Noise barrage raw ng 11pm at rally kinabukasan sa Senate. 11pm na, nasa bus pa ako; medyo nag-umpisa nang magkaingay ang mga sasakyan sa labas. Ako, gusto kong magwala sa loob pero siyempre nakakahiya kung para akong baliw na magsisigaw nang bigla. Nagtaka lang ako dahil kahit lagpas ng 11, tuluy-tuloy pa rin ang mga busina. Kahit magtu-twelve na ay may bumubusina pa.

In commemoration of People Power 2, I am posting here a copy of my contribution to a still-unpublished youth compendium of articles on the event.

I wrote this piece way back in 2002 (or 2003?). It deals with the use of technology in Edsa 2 and succeeding events.

Forward the message, answer the call for change
TEXTING AND OTHER TOOLS OF A PEOPLE IN REVOLT

By Anthony Ian “Tonyo” M. Cruz

Much has been said about the role of texting and the People Power 2 uprising. Some quarters have even gone to the extent of calling it a “texters’ revolt.” They cast aside People Power 2 as nothing but “mob rule” that was helped in a big way by texting and a flowering of websites and mailing lists which were all directed against one common enemy called Erap.

However, they are right only on one point: That the most vocal, most determined and most organized participants in the uprising were armed with cellphones and sent out a heretofore unimaginable number of text messages for about three days.

These critics of People Power 2 were wrong everywhere else.
