MANILA, Philippines — While the nation is commemorating the Edsa People Power, a phenomenon that put the Philippines in the limelight for overthrowing an oppressive government “peacefully,” netizens elsewhere exercised their freedom to express their “hugots.”

Why not? Isn’t freedom of expression one of the gifts of a “democracy” that was born during the Edsa revolution?
