    University of the Philippines Film student Revy Marata leads hundreds of students, campus editors, and professionals in a rally on Mendiola Bridge a few meters from Malacañang to protest the state harassment of news editors of Rappler and other news media organizations.

   (Here was the Agence France Presse caption: “A Filipino student stands up for press freedom at a street protest. Concerns over freedom of the press have risen in the Philippines as the government of President Rodrigo Duterte acts against a critical online news site.”

    (Normally, socialites and aspiring starlets splurge hundreds of thousands of pesos in cosmetic surgery and dermabrasion to be picture-perfect, and   spend millions of pesos more to ensure  publicity and land on the cover of magazines, to be guested in talk shows, featured in showbiz lifestyle channels — just look at the multi-million peso birthday bash of presidential granddaughter Isabelle Duterte (see previous post here the other day, scroll down)… )

     Revy shows the way 

 for young people like herself .
