Watch the funeral cortege as it makes its way to the Manila Cathedral via live streaming through ANC or GMA News TV/Facebook.

Ituloy natin ang laban Pilipinas!

(UPDATE 5:04 pm) Screenshots from GMA News TV's live streaming video w/ Facebook. It never ceases to amaze me how far Philippine media has come in terms of technology when covering important events like these. Great job guys!

It's touching how kids, probably not even born yet during the People Power revolt in 1986, went to pay their last respects to Tita Cory.

According to Howie Severino, head of GMA News TV's online group, the network will also be live streaming Tita Cory's funeral on Wed.

Rest in peace, Madam President Cory.

You were a gift not only to the Philippines but to the world.
