"Kailangang alalahanin na ang diwa ng EDSA ay hindi lamang para sa mga tinatawag na 'dilawan'—walang iisang kulay o iisang grupong nagmamay-ari ng tagumpay ng taumbayan laban sa diktadurya," Robredo said in her facebook post.

The Vice president is referring to the political color associated with the Aquino’s Liberal Party.

Supporters of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, have labelled associated with the Liberal Party or critical to the administration “dilawan.”

"Sana ma-break lang iyong misconception na iyong EDSA ay mga ‘dilawan.’ Dahil tingin ko, kapag ganito iyong pagtingin natin, insulto ito sa napakaraming mga Pilipino na wala namang political affiliations noong 1986, na wala namang kulay na nagde-define sa kanila, pero tumulong para isikwal iyong kasamaan, tumulong para baguhin iyong masamang sistema sa bansa natin. Ito, talagang pag-alala sa lahat na Pilipinong nagsakripisyo para mangyari iyon," she added.

Vice President Robredo also said that remembering the  spirit of EDSA Revolution is crucial in order to revisit the lessons taught by history.

"Iyong pinakamahalagang lesson doon [ang]pagpapaalala na iyong kapangyarihan, nasa kamay ng ordinaryong Pilipino—na kahit gaano man ka-powerful, o kahit gaano ka-imposible iyong tinitingnan na task, iyong pinaka-lesson sa atin ng EDSA, basta magkaisa iyong mga Pilipino, iyong imposible puwedeng puwedeng maging posible,” the Vice-President  said.
