A Syracuse, New York, Middle School project talking about EDSA ’86

This is a amazing story many of us lived thorugh is told from thousands of miles away by a new generation of people who saw people power through old movie clips and news clips and created a ten minute long documentary.
This is from 7th graders in what would be first year high school – yet so well put together and so plainly told with a fervor for story telling I must admit even those who like myself lived through this often seem to forget this proud moment in time.

[] …. This is a documentary project on the 1986 Philippines EDSA Revolution, written, composed and edited by three 7th grade students from …  Syracuse, New York, for the Junior Group Documentary category of National History Day 2006. This documentary took first place at the regional level, second place at the New York state level, and narrowly missed becoming one of the top 12 finalists in the National History Day competition held from June 11-15, 2006 at the University of Maryland. This documentary also commemorates the 20th anniversary of the 1986 EDSA Revolution that restored democracy in the Philippines after 20 years of martial law. This documentary gratefully acknowledges the not-for-profit fair use of copyrighted video and graphical material from various sources listed in the end credits. …” []
