29% of Filipinos think ‘People Power’ is title of talent show that launched Kris Aquino into stardom—survey


'LAUGHABLE.' Members of the Statistical Institute of Caloocan, led by Dr. Melvardo del Prado (center), present their findings.

A recent survey shows that 29% of Filipinos — or nearly one in three — believe that “People Power” is the title of a talent show that launched Kris Aquino into stardom.

The nationwide study was conducted by the Statistical Institute of Caloocan (SIC), and asked the question, “What does People Power mean to you?” Other responses were, “a pro-democracy uprising” (31%), “an extra-constitutional rebellion” (4%), “a Church-led vigil” (15%), “a US-backed coup” (8%), “a concert” (8%), and “the name of a K-pop ensemble” (2%). 3% of respondents said they did not know.

Meanwhile, a related study by SIC finds that 38% of Filipinos describe the Marcos dictatorship as “the time many roads were built,” followed by 26% who answered, “a period of massive corruption and human rights abuses.” On the other hand, 53% of the poll respondents believe the goal of People Power was to “avenge the death of Ninoy Aquino.” Only 13% answered “to regain our freedom and our right to basic human dignity.”

Dr. Melvardo del Prado, executive director of SIC, calls these results “laughable.” MP
