Martial Law may be one of the dark ages in Philippine history, but for Presidential Consultant for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion, not everything about the authoritarian rule of dictator Ferdinand Marcos was bad.

Four days ahead of the 31st anniversary of the People Power Revolution, Concepcion said Filipinos wouldn’t have the desire for change if Marcos didn’t declare Martial Law.

“The Philippines, we have our own struggle. But started the People Power was the Filipinos realizing that it was time for them to fight for their freedom. And I look at it positively. Marcos, in a way, instill that in a sense by, at that point in time, people wanted to change,” he said.

Concepcion, who was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as vice chairperson of the EDSA People Power Commission, said he is proud that Filipinos ended Marcos’ dictatorial rule through a bloodless uprising rather than a civil war.

“So, in a way if you look at it without Marcos how do we build character? I look at that. I mean, how will I build my own character? How will we see the Filipinos build their character? That was the challenge at that point in time. That’s how I look at it,” he said.

Compared to previous commemorations of EDSA People Power 1, Malacañang said this year’s celebration will be low-key, with an allotted budget of only P1 million.
