Students view Lozada testimony in ‘in-campus huddles’
Human chain vs. corruption set this afternoon

Youth group Anakbayan expressed support for ZTE scam star witness Jun Lozada for ‘bravely siding with the people’ and telling all he knew about the ZTE controversy despite attempts by the administration to silence him.

Anakbayan today led ‘in-campus huddles’ and ‘pocket public viewings’ of Lozada’s statement as delivered during his press conference at the La Salle Greenhills at 2:00 in the morning today.

Simultaneous viewings and discussions will be held at 1:00 in the afternoon today at the University of the Philippines-Diliman and Manila, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Trinity College, University of Sto. Tomas, University of the East, Far Eastern University and the Philippine Christian University.

Anakbayan chairperson Eleanor de Guzman said that they would hold the in-campus viewings ‘to broadcast to students who are presently attending classes the recent political developments and to provide venues for them to discuss their views (on these).’

“What is unfolding now is a major concern for youth and students. It is about time that more and more are being emboldened to speak out against unresolved cases of bribery and corruption implicating the Arroyo syndicate,” said de Guzman.

Students from the said schools are set to stage a ‘youth human chain against corruption and tyranny’ at 5:00 this afternoon at the UP campus in Diliman, Ubelt consortium-Espana and along Taft Avenue.

“We call on CHED Chair Romulo Neri and former Speaker Jose de Venecia to follow Lozada’s lead. They will likewise have the youth’s support,” said de Guzman.

De Guzman earlier challenged de Venecia ‘to consummate his act of repentance, to expose all and side with the people,”

Anakbayan vowed to stage more protest actions, fora and street teach-ins on corruption in the following days. ###
