UP President Pascual reacts to near-mauling of controversial Philippine budget department head after campus appearance.
Hmmm. Am tentative on this. Although, I was a pacifist during my stint in campus. The Diliman Commune is always the standard by which conscience asks me to assess things done by activists and the administrators’ handling of activists. Anything short of the rage and fire of the Diliman Commune is peanuts and should never be given time and energy for investigation, nor discussion of sanction.
That minor line in the statement about outsiders should never be brushed aside as well. During the dark times, it is a known fact that Diliman was one of the refuges for progressives fighting against powerful and logistically-rich state elements. We must not forget.
