aanhin ang ganda kung ang bayan ay chaka: a compilation of quotes

Had we valued your “civility” as much as you do to the point of inaction, the BOR Meet infested with Malacanang midnight appointees with expired terms set to approve further commercialization and anti-student policies could have pushed through. Well you better start reading to at least know about our social realities so your arguments will get past personal attacks and go

– Roselyn Correa

Jesus made a whip. He chased out all the people who worked at the tables. He said, ‘How dare you turn my Father’s house into a market’ (John 2:16). He sent away those who cheated people. –See, even Jesus himself went “uncivilised and barbaric” while he was “cleansing the temple”. Now, how dare these regents throw our right to education out into the market?

– Peter Paul Sengson, Councilor, UP College of Social Sciences and Philosophy 2009-2010

Now a number of PUP students will be charged of robbery! But what is the so-called students’ robbery compared to the tuition fee increase? Isn’t that legalized robbery? This only shows the duplicitous bogusness of liberal tolerance: you may protest, but accoridng to our own rules! You are free but act accoridng to ourprinciples! Perfect form of self-regulation through capitalistic governmentality!

– Gerry Lanuza, UP Diliman Dept. of Sociology

Ang pagsigla ng aktibismo sa mga pamantasan ay isang bagay na dapat nating ipagmalaki at ipagdiwang. sana, yung mga hindi na nga nakakatulong e huwag nang makagipit. sana, subukan lang nila for once na makinig. para marealize nila na kaya may humihiyaw ay dahil may nagbibingi-bingihan. may pumapalag dahil may nananakal. may naghihimagsik dahil may nang-aapi.

– Voltz Robles, Chairperson, UP College of Arts and Letters Student Council 2005-2006

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.

– John F. Kennedy

E bakit ba kasi kinakailangan munang may mga aksyong gaya nito bago gawin ng gubyerno ang trabaho nito? Pag nangangamba na saka lang aaksyon.

– Vencer Crisostomo, Secretary-General, KABATAAN Partylist

Intindihin natin ang (pa-)rich kids na kumukundena sa March 24 protest. Syempre mas shocking sa kanila ang prospect ng pamamato ng pintura kesa sa idea ng pagbabayad ng mahal para sa edukasyon! In short, mas vulnerable ang mga fez nila kesa wallet!

– Karl Castro, Editor in Chief, Phil. Collegian 2006-2007

Aanhin ang ganda, kung ang bayan ay chaka?

– Vincent Silarde

Let a thousand paintbombs boom, let a hundred school protests offend

– UP Paintbombers

Sakit sa bangs ng mga opposing views sa pangyayari kanina sa UPD. at the end of the day, makikita naman na yung idealistic diplomacy ay walang mararating kung hindi panatilihin ang status quo dahil ilang beses nang hindi pinakinggan ang diplomasya at pinapaikot lang ng BOR/admin ang mga usapan. and mind you, yung status quo ngayon ng UP ay hindi masayang mundo ni Peter Pan.

– Jigs Tenorio, Chairperson, UP Manila College of Arts and Sciences Student Council 2007-2008

If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.

– Thomas Paine

The benefits we are reaping today, such as the student council and student regent are efforts of collective action of students exhibiting that “disappointing behavior”. even the removal of the symbolic violence on student-teacher relationship in classroom setting (thanks to these rude behaviors i don’t have to stand when i recite). if you truly possess verstehen, hindi mo isusuot yung sapatos ng malacanang appointed regents, pagkakasyahin mo yung paa mo sa tsinelas ng mga estudyante.

– Robert “Robby” Sarmiento

Kayong mga kinu-kondena ang naganap na matagumpay na pagkilos kahapon sa Quezon Hall at sinasabing barbarikong gawain ito at nakakahiya, pakisagot, ano na ang naihain ninyong alternatibo, at kung ginawa n’yo ba ito kung meron man, o talagang masarap lang magpahangin sa mga tore ninyo ng liberalismo at indibidwalismo?

– Rob Jara

Kinikwestyon nila kayo bakit radikal yang mga pagkilos niyo eh bakit yung estado ba kinuwestyon din nila sa pagpatay niya sa mga aktibista? sa paggutom niya at pagpapahirap sa mamamayan? sa di niya pagpapaaral sa mga kabataan?

– Doctor Ed Villegas, UP Manila Dept. of Social Sciences

It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.

– Gandhi

Ang maghimagsik ay makatarungan

– Mao Zedong
