  1. the College Council meeting kanina was one of the best i've attended =] if you were there, you'd be so (much) proud(er) of our UPCM profs.ang bilis, na-post mo agad 'tong statement!

  2. Yes indeed I am proud of our professors standing beside us in our fight for a just cause. I'm always are. We are.

  3. I strongly support Dr. Jose C. Gonzales as Director of UP-PGH. How can my friends and I help from North America? Thanks,

  4. @Anonymous, thank you so much. Please pass on information to your friends and groups about whats really happening in UP, BOR, PGH and Dr. Gonzales. Many Filipinos still do not know whats the real issues and what Dr. Gonzales and the LABAN PGH is fighting for. You can express support by following on the issues, actively participate in the discussions or express verbally or in writing, you disgust over BOR's/Roman/Malacanang manipulations. A TRO is already filled in court and the hold over barricade is continuing in PGH as of now. Again, thank you so much
