Vowing to intensify the struggle for democratic rights of the youth and other marginalized sectors of society, Kabataan Partylist Rep. Terry Ridon has taken his oath of office this morning at the Quezon City Hall of Justice Branch 225.
Indignant over the “triple whammy” of combined hikes in tuition, water and power rates, youth formations led by Kabataan Partylist staged noise barrages and picket protests throughout Metro Manila today.
Three years into the Aquino presidency, the same problems remain – and even worsened. Millions of families continue to be mired in poverty, while millions of youth greet the school opening outside their campuses, unable to enroll due to financial constraints. Thus the youth tags Aquino ineligible to govern for the remaining years of his term.
Responding to the Supreme Court’s decision to junk the petition against the implementation of tuition hikes filed by youth groups last week, Kabataan Partylist Rep. Raymond Palatino said that it will not hinder students from continuing the fight for accessible education.
Several youth groups led by Kabataan Partylist along with students from various colleges and universities filed a petition in the Supreme Court at around 2:30 p.m. today to stop the implementation of the newly-approved hikes in 354 tertiary schools nationwide.
Youth groups led by Kabataan Partylist and the National Union of Students of the Philippines denounced the approval of a new spate of tuition increases in 343 colleges and universities, and 260 elementary and secondary schools across the country.
Youth groups led by Kabataan Party-list staged an indignation rally at around 1 p.m. today to protest the the apparent manipulation of election results and various anomalies hounding the midterm elections.
Less than an hour before the midterm polls end, youth groups grew more and more concerned about the outcome of the midterm elections, fearing “massive electoral fraud” and disenfranchisement of millions of Filipino voters due to widespread malfunctioning of PCOS machines and several other factors.
Level up sa paglilingkod! Level up sa pagkakaisa! Level up sa pakikibaka!
“The extension of the TRO is a welcome development in the fight to reclaim our rights online. Though it is a victory in its own right, the youth will not stop just because of the extension. We will continue the battle against e-Martial Law until it has been vanquished with finality.”
