Message of Solidarity to U.P. President Danilo Concepcion, UPCMC Dean Elena Pernia, and many more on this Day of Remembrance

      The Law on Mass Media HWX-1 class sends this message of solidarity to U.P. President Danilo Concepcion (“PDLC”, “Danicon”) for his Proclamation of the Day of Remembrance Sept. 21 to encourage members of the U.P. Community to participate in activities that commemorate the struggle against martial law; and to UP CMC Dean Neny Pernia and College Secretary Prof. Terry Singun for the invaluable assistance of the staff (many thanks, Gina, RJ, Diane, Nanette, Jumong, Troz, Jaymer, many more.).
