More and more rumors are popping up about the possibility of military intervention. One popular SMS-forward claims that as soon as a critical mass of one million people is reached, the military will side against the administration.
The human chain today was successful, and the crowd at Edsa continues to grow (estimated about 100,000 to 200,000 people already). The planned rally/march from the Edsa Shrine to Mendiola may be postponed to allow other militant anti-Erap groups to join. I worry that it may get bloody as pro-Erap and anti-Erap rallies clash.
Just a warning: in the event of a coup d’etat, I will most likely not be able to update this blog, because these military uprisings are usually accompanied by citywide power blackouts.
