Earlier in the week, on July 20, UP Diliman’s University Council (UC), composed of all faculty members with the ranks of assistant professor up to full professor passed a resolution stating the council’s opposition to “all attempts of GMA and her allies to convene an illegal constituent assembly and prolong her rule”.
The College of Mass Communication of UP Diliman issued, the other day, an assessment of the state of the media in the more than eight years of the Arroyo administration. In its assessment, “the College reaffirms its commitment to help media and journalist organizations defend press freedom, and to be part of the de facto alliance that, by resisting the Arroyo administration’s attack on the press and working for the enhancement of professional and ethical media practice, is at the same time defending what remains of Philippine democracy. The College will remain vigilant and continue to watch her, her government and all her minions; and remain critical of all her actions.”
The UP March ended at the Philcoa where a noise barrage was held.
