The Deans and University officials all led by #UPDiliman Chancellor Michael Tan speak up to condemn the violence against indigenous & Moro people– guests of U.P. (Lagot mga pulis na lumapastangan sa kanila — woe unto the policemen who violated our guests)

     The Deans and University officials strongly condemned the police “rampage” against the indigenous and Moro people and wondered aloud, quote “about the racist undertones of the MPD (police) action, the police acting with such brutality clearly because they wanted to protect the imperial US Embassy against the national minorities or, in a local term used condescendingly, “natives”. ” closed-quote. The Deans stressed: “Our police forces should become servers and protectors of the Filipino people, especially the most marginalized.”

Embedded below as a jpeg file is a copy of the official statement and open letter of the U.P. Deans and University officials led by the Chancellor to PNP Chief Ronald de la Rosa and to Manila Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada:
