The People Power Monument is a sculpture of towering people commemorating the People Power Revolution of 1986 located on the corner of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue or EDSA and White Plains Avenue in Barangay Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City. It was made by Eduardo Castrillo in 1993. It is about 0.90 kilometres (0.56 mi) from the EDSA Shrine, another monument built to commemorate the event.

On 30 November 2016, the monument became a gathering point where anti Marcos groups, Martial Law victims and political figures gathered at the monument to denounce the surprise burial of Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Hero's Cemetery) that took place on November 18, 2016. In efforts to seek reversal of the burial due to the unexecutable approval of the Supreme Court. Reason for such condemnation and calls to reverse the burial of the remains of Marcos are due to atrocities and human rights violations during his regime and unrecovered ill-gotten wealth with pending cases till this day.[1] Coordinates: 14°36′00″N 121°03′36″E / 14.60000°N 121.06000°E / 14.60000; 121.06000
