Upon the invitation of the EDSA People Power Commission, the  
University is participating in this year?s 27th anniversary observance  
of the 1986 EDSA People Power revolution.

The Ateneo de Manila will send a contingent to the commemorative  
activities to be held from 6:00 a.m. to about 10:00 a.m. on Monday,  
February 25, 2013 at the People Power monument, corner of EDSA and  
White Plains Avenue.  That day has been declared a special holiday for  
all schools nationwide.

All ? especially those from but not limited to the Loyola Schools and  
the Professional Schools - are enjoined to take part in rekindling the  
memory of this seminal event in our country?s history.  Particularly  
as the 2013 election season unfolds, may the memory of the bloodless  
People Power upheaval engender and cultivate in all of us a deeper  
patriotic regard for our beloved nation, the building of which the  
University has long-committed to and which has been re-asserted as  
among its strategic thrusts.

Should you wish to be included in the University contingent, please  
submit your name to my office by email (at vpsd at admu.edu.ph) by not  
later than the 13th of February 2013, to enable us to reckon the  
number of Ateneo participants and to advise the organizers thereof by  
their next meeting on the 15th of February 2013.  This will also allow  
us to take stock of any need for logistical arrangements for our  

We shall also be holding an appropriate briefing session/forum about  
the event and its significance especially for our participating  
students, to better predispose them on their participation.

Vice-President for Social Development
