MANILA, Philippines – Veteran actress Vivian Velez is the latest celebrity to slam former Apo Hiking Society singer Jim Paredes following a confrontation with Duterte Youth members protesting at the commemoration of the 31st EDSA People Power last Saturday, February 25.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, Velez slammed Paredes for “harping about EJK or the people who died from drugs” and reminded the latter about his mother’s role in the series of bombings in the 1980’s at the height of Marcos’ dictatorial regime where several people were injured, and at least one American was killed.
Velez was referring to Paredes’ mother, Ester Jimenez; a member of Light-A-Fire Movement along with Steven Psinakis (the Greek husband of Precy Lopez of the Lopez clan) and other prominent politicians then like Heherson Alvarez, Raul Daza and Bonifacio Gillego.
Velez also shared a link to the website Kahimyang that provides more details about the Light-A-Fire Movement and their activities during the Martial Law era.
According to Kahimyang, it was on the night of September 12, 1980, when bombs went off at Rustan’s Mall in Makati; the first of a series of explosions that followed over the next several weeks. Around 70 people were hurt in the Rustan’s blast and one American was killed. (Continue to next page)
