Abstract

This article interprets the two events in 2001 that deposed and attempted to reinstall Philippine President Joseph Estrada, known as Edsa 2 and Edsa 3, as two sides of a struggle over symbolic class boundaries. It argues that class is a particularly productive mode of analysis if attention is given to its cultural expression through status distinctions. In Metro Manila the distinction between moso (of the masses) and dimaso (not of the masses) suggests two class positions contending over the right to the city. Because class making involves the expressly political work of representation, representations of Edsa 2 and Edsa 3 draw symbolic boundaries between civil and uncivil society.
