Members of the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) Fraternity ran naked today at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus to protest the burial of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

According to APO:

In the span of nine days, the Duterte administration has put to waste the epic heroism of many thousands who suffered and died under Marcos the dictator by allowing his burial at the country’s field of heroes,” APO said in a statement.

We call on our government to truly serve the people, to protect the freedoms for which many have fought and died, and pay homage to these heroes by never forgetting the dark chapters of our history while moving boldly towards a more just future”

This is nothing more than a petulant bawling because some kids didn’t get their milk. But it’s getting to be the trend nowadays. If people don’t get what they want, they break the plates or hurl the utensils. Protests are somewhat like that. There’s no need to organize rallies if you can state your discontentment online. I’m sure you can file your grievances with the respected government offices if you put it in paper. Try avoiding the pitchforks if you can. People will get hurt less with that.
