ACT Teachers Party-List salutes UP Diliman Chancellor Michael Tan’s hospitality, recognition and support to the causes of the national minority Lakbayanis. We commend his convictions expressed in his column (‘Assaulted, betrayed’, Philippine Daily Inquirer)*. We join him in condemning the October 19 brutal dispersal of the rally in front of the U.S. Embassy as an assault to the University of the Philippines and to all freedom loving Filipinos.

We quote, “The national minorities are UP’s guests, so I cannot but feel UP was assaulted, too. And because UP is the national university, the assault, the betrayal, is against the nation as well. I also cannot help but think: Would we have witnessed such an affront if it had not been the US Embassy being defended, and if the ralliers were not national minorities?”
