Netizen, isiniwalat ang katotohanan tungkol sa iconic EDSA photo ng 1986

Isang concerned netizen ang nagbahagi ng isang napaka-kagiliw-giliw na kuwento tungkol sa iconic na EDSA Photo ng 1986 na nagpapakita ng mga madre na pinipigilan ang mga tangke sa EDSA, na malawakang ginagamit ng lokal at internasyonal na media sa pagkalat ng mga kabayanihan ng mga madre noong 1986 EDSA Revolutions.

Ayon sa post ng isang concerned netizen, si Paul Farol, ang iconic na EDSA Photo ay iba sa kung ano ang iniisip ng karamihan. Ayon kay Farol, ang mga tangke na pinaghihinalaang pinigil ng mga madre ay naka-park lamang sa panahon ng pag-aalsa sa EDSA.

Sinabi ni Paul Parol na ang mga kontrobersyal na tangke ay nakaposisyon doon sa pamamahala ni Marine Gen. Tadiar, isang araw bago ang larawan ni Pete Reyes ng dalawang madre na nagdarasal ng rosaryo na itinampok sa The Manila Times.

Mayroong iba't ibang mga kuwento tungkol sa iconic EDSA photo, kumpara sa kuwento na ikinakalat ng mainstream media sa lokal at internasyonal.

Narito ang kabuuang rebelasyon na ibinahagi ni Paul Farol:

Bok Ed Lingao, weren’t you in that famous pic?

The ‘spirit’ of EDSA, from Joe Galvez —

The story behind the iconic "nuns stopped tanks on EDSA." There's this story being fed for decades that nuns stopped several Marine tanks along Ortigas Avenue during the so-called People Power uprising. Wrong.

The tanks have been positioned there by Marine Gen. Tadiar a day before the Pete Reyes photo of two nuns praying the rosary made the Manila Times banner photo. How the photo came to be? Here's the story.

Curiosity led people to start gathering at the corner of Ortigas and EDSA to see why there were tanks parked there. They wanted to know whether they were loyalists or rebels. The small crowd grew to several thousands then to more than a hundred thousand in just a day after Cardinal Sin called for more people to go to Ortigas.

As the crowd started to add up, Gen. Tadiar ordered the tanks to move to a vacant lot which is now known as Robinsons Galleria. When the tank engines started to roar, the people in front of the tanks started to panic thinking that the tanks were gonna roll over them. People, including the nuns, started praying the rosary.

With all the international media focusing their lenses on the nuns, the story has been sealed. And that was how the iconic photo was taken. Photographs can be interpreted in many ways but the true story could only be told by those who were 'really' there. So in my opinion, the praying nuns did not stop the tanks because the tanks were never gonna roll over them in the first place.

That split second incident became a photo opportunity for photographers (including me) and spinners. You want proof? I have photographs of that incident (before, during and after).
