Hello!

Dear Rappler Reader,

"The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting."

Taking off from this quote from a book by famous author Milan Kundera, our #AnimatED this week outlines key reminders about EDSA and issues the country faces today.

Making sure people will remember starts from keeping the public informed on matters of public interest--even if doing so offends those in power. This essence of press freedom is highlighted in the movie, "The Post." For those who have not watched this important film, do take time to read our review which includes the movie trailer.

Meanwhile, experts are set to take "center stage" today at the Senate for a hearing on the Benham Rise issue.

Benham Rise has been in the headlines recently after China gave names to the area's undersea features and after the Philippine government allowed Chinese researchers to go to the area despite the it being Philippine territory.

Below are the top news of the day.

Have a great week ahead!
