Based on the viral video now spreading on social media, the protesting students were crying out loud that the President is a dictator and the Philippines is now under a fascist government in connivance with the US imperialist. While walking out from their respective classrooms the students urged their fellow students to join them in their protest actions.
Watch the Viral Video of the UP Protesting Students:
The protesting students were also holding banners showing their dismay of the Duterte admin and their resistance against the impending charter change as the government planned for a Federal Republic.
Despite the fact that there is no Martial Law in Metro Manila or any other parts of the Philippines except for Mindanao, the protesting students keeps on chanting “Never Again to Martial Law,” which caused some disruptions among other students who were not part of the protests.
Pres. Duterte earlier declared that if the students of the University of the Philippines continued their walk out protests during classes, he could possibly order to expel the students and replace them with bright Lumads.
Here’s Some of the Comments from Concerned Netizens:
Ken Sandberg: I live in Davao City. I’ve been here for 22 years. 21 of those years we had no Martial Law, and for less than one year, we’ve been “under Martial Law” (it’s only been declared in Mindanao). Life in Davao looks the same as it did over the past two decades. It’s peaceful & prospering. The only ones down here who loudly complain about Martial Law are the criminals. I would be okay with going back to no Martial Law in Mindanao, but that’s not my decision to make. Martial Law helped the RP troops win the war over terrorists in Marawi. President Duterte is doing a great job in leading the Philippines, as he did in leading Davao City as mayor. We need to honor him & pray for him (& pray for all in authority).
Nelieth Stateresa Gusi: Naver again… Never again – to support these kind of students!!!! I’m sorry but what a shameless act!!!! I will never let my kids study @ UP…. Let’s start discipline these wimpy kids!!!!!

Romeo Mangubat: Let the university officials and faculties answers this mess, why the students are undisciplined and unruly radical behaviour. The university should teach discipline, how come they conduct unbecoming? Is it initiated by university officials itself? They should be responsible with this.
