Feb 25, 2010 is Blog Action Day : The real heroes of EDSA

Twenty four years ago, our people toppled a tyrant.    On February 25, 2010 let us re-tell their stories.

On Thursday, we are enjoining all young Filipinos to blog about the stories of the real heroes of EDSA: our parents, grandparents, ates and kuyas, titos and titas, ninong and ninangs.

We may have been too young then or were not even born yet, but we can ask them to recount their tales of real-life heroism to us. What prompted them to join the uprising? What were their thoughts and feelings? What did they wear, eat, chant? How did it feel to be able to be surrounded by overwhelming unity and patriotism among millions of other heroes marching in the streets on those three historic days.

Since EDSA was mainly about the people’s resistance to martial law, you can ask them their experience during the martial law era, how they fought,  even before the culmination of the people’s mass movement that was the EDSA People Power Uprising. You may also post old photos, artworks and/or anti-martial law memorabilia.

Link your blog entries to this post and grab the button below by copying the link to mark your participation. We will start posting links of entries in our website at exactly 12:00 noon on February 25.

On February 25, let us give proper honor and citation to the millions of Filipinos who made EDSA People Power possible. ###


A call to arms!

Kabataan ang pag asa ng Bayan – RIZAL
But does the youth, which Rizal says  “Pag-Asa” ng Bayan will still be the “Pag-Asa” ng Bayan if they would fail to enroll next sem because of their schools uprising trend in tuition fee?

fellow Rizalian’s!

we would like to inform you that on Feb26,2010 there will be a tuition fee consultation at Tower62, 5pm which the upcoming tuition fee increase would be discussed. we would like to ask for your sympathy against any increase on our tuition fee.

as the admin says, one of their reasons why they should increase their tuition is because of the newly acquired “Autonomous” Status of our school. wherein they say that a school with such status can no longer be bothered by CHED, specifically on tuition fee increases.

but that reasoning is not true, because, the CHED cannot intervene with JRU(w/ its Autonomous Status) on opening on new courses only. it doesnt mean that having the Autonomous Status would be their reason for any increase on our tuition.  but what’s happening is, they, the school admin – is using the school’s autonomous status to gradually increase our tuition again.

we should not confer to that. we as students, can only guard our good education by preventing such tuition fee increases. a simple logic : if the school, once again increase its tuition – that would be a burden to our parents. and  the trend of drop out rates on our university will gradually increase again. is that the quality and good education they are bragging? yes, we got “the gold standard of academic excellence”, but by what measures? by increasing tuition fee which would cause us to stop come next academic calendar 2010-2011?

we have to do something. and yes, we can do something.

we are inviting you participate on our BLACK SHIRT DAY on Febryary26, 2010 at the our school campus. and also, there will be a massive mobilization at the front of our school wherein students from different academe in Metro Manila will conduct a program as a sign of solidarity to us Rizalians.

because of our schools repressive orientation, we understand that there are some fears on your thoughts, if you cant join the mobilization at the front of our school, you can express your sympathy by wearing black shirt on that said date(Feb26). you could also watch the program at the front of our school at around 4:30 – 5:00pm.

Remember :

1.Black shirt day on Feb26 2010 as a sign of protest against our schools tuition fee increase.

2. Make the Tution Fee Consultation Public!

We would also want to tell you that the consultation that will happen on Feb26 is only limited to central student council heads and org heads. that is so few compared to the nearly 9000 students of our school. what if, all of them are biased at our schools tuition fee increase? should we be the one to carry the burden? that is why we are demanding that the tuition fee consultation should happen in a public place, somewhat like the quadrangle wherein the majority of the students wil be the audience.

lets fight the massive commercialization on our school!
let us fight against Tuition Fee and Other Increases!
Black Shirt Day on Feb26!

with solidarity,
KabataanPartylist, JRU

no to CONASS!

2010 is nearing and as expected by many..CHACHA is now being pushed by the shameful CONASS! I would like to adress my shame to our Congressman Roman T. Romulo of Pasig for supporting the very unconstitutional CHACHA through the passing of HR 1109.

Come and join the widespread campaign of protesting against CONASS! Let us blog and post to all of our social networking sites such as Friendster, Multiply, Facebook our rage against the hasty passing of HR 1109.
