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

Youth Action Day set on June 19, Rizal Day

Kabataan Party-list Rep. Mong Palatino today said that youth groups will launch a nationwide petition campaign against the convening of a constituent assembly when classes open on Monday, June 15.

“We expect to gather one million signatures until the State of the Nation Address in July. Let this be a testament of how youth and students everywhere despise con-ass and attempts of the Arroyo administration to extend her term,” Palatino said.

Palatino said that Kabataan Party-list will be putting up signature campaign booths in schools and universities nationwide starting Monday.

Palatino’s office would also be sponsoring forums and campus tours dubbed ‘Konsultahang Kabataan’ with the topic, “Con-Ass and the 2010 Elections.’

“We will continue to work despite (Congress being on) recess. We will be reaching out to our constituents nationwide to gather their opinions and unite our ranks against this dreaded con-ass. Expect youth protests to snowball in the following days,” he said.

June 19 Youth Action Day

Palatino also announced that they are preparing for a Youth Action Day on June 19, Rizal Day, and Kabataan Party-list’s founding anniversary.

“There is no better date to showcase youth unity and love for nation than this coming June 19, Rizal Day. Kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan, hindi para sa bukas pa kundi ngayon na when our youth are being confronted with tyrannical attempts to discard our democratic rights,” Palatino said.

June 19, Palatino said, will kick off with a Morning Jog vs. Conass at 6:00 in the morning in Baywalk towards the Manila City Hall where first time voters will collectively register. A main program will be held in Luneta from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, and then participants will embark on a march-parade around Metro Manila schools along Taft and Intramuros.

Participants will then converge in front of the Commission on Elections by 2:00pm for a closing program to call for clean and honest elections in 2010. A youth concert will also be held at 6:00 in the afternoon in Quezon City.

“We call on all democracy-loving youth to join us. Together, let us reject con-ass and demand regime and societal change in 2010,” Palatino said.


Sa harap ng kasalukuyang sitwasyong pulitika, may mahalagang tungkuling kailangang ganpanan ang kabataan at mamamayan. Itinutulak ng pagnanais ng gobyerno na manatili sa kapangyarihan gamit ang Charter Change ang bawat makabayang Pilipinong nagmamahal sa kalayaan na magkaisa at kumilos.

Hindi na tayo maaaring manahimik o manatiling walang pakialam. Hindi na tayo maaaring magsawalang bahala habang niluluray ng mga bwitre sa Kongreso at Malakanyang ang ating mga pampublikong institusyon at ang ating mismong kinabukasan bilang bansa at mamamayan. Kapalit ng ating pananahimik ay tagumpay ng masasamang balakin ng mga ganid sa kapangyarihan.

Itinuturo ng kasaysayan na kailanman hindi magtatagumpay ang tiraniya laban sa kolektibong pagkilos ng nagkakaisang sambayanan. ngayon ang panahon na manindigan at ipagtanggol ang demokrasya at bayan laban sa pagkaganid ng gobyerno at kasakiman sa kapangyarihan.

Cha-Cha at Gloria, Ibasura!

Makiisa at kumilos :

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.
