Dear Colleagues:

Warm nationalist greetings!

Solidaridad, the UP system-wide alliance of student publications and writers’ organizations, is gearing up for its annual writers’ congress set on October 21-24 in UP Baguio. The Solidaridad Congress is the highest policy making body of the alliance. It also serves as a major consolidation activity for member publications and organizations.

This years theme, “PRESSent Tense: Renewed Repression, Resurging Struggles,” focuses on evolved forms of press freedom violations and the revitalized efforts of student journalists to defend campus press freedom. Discussions will tackle the present state of the campus press in light of extensive political repression currently hounding the people. Various journalism skills workshops will also be held. (Program to follow)

As such, we would like to invite your publication/organization to the said activity. Registration fee is pegged at P750 per head, which will cover board and lodging as well as press kits. Your attendance is key in fortifying the ranks of student journalists geared to defend campus press freedom during this bleak period of political repression.

For inquiries, please feel free to contact us through 09154509846 (Floyd) or solidaridad0607@yahoogroups.com.

Thank you very much for your support!

Truly yours,

(SGD)
Frank Lloyd Tiongson
Solidaridad Chairperson

Enough of Gloria!

Muzzling Discontent

Tagging the people's legitimate clamor for Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's resignation as a mere "destabilization plot" seems to be the only recourse for an administration without any concrete and acceptable reply to the various issues hurled at it. That is, aside from a janus-faced Arroyo stolidly saying "I am sorry" along with her obstinate refusal to relinquish her questioned hold of office.

"Flashing the badge," or conveniently hiding behind coercive state decrees to hamper the mounting discontent of the people reveals the administration's desperation, currently isolated as the perpetrator of the worsening economic and political crisis. Printing presses were raided for printing "subversive" posters, demonstrations are pre-empted by penalizing jeepney drivers for transporting protesters, and "inciting to sedition" raps are once again hurled at critics – with such vigor reminiscent of the turbulent Martial Law years.

These are not at all surprising for an administration, whose armed force once branded mass organizations, church groups, and even media groups such as the National Union of Journalists in the Philippines and the College Editors' Guild of the Philippines as "enemies of the state." Under Arroyo's watch, moreover, the Philippines has been deemed the "most murderous place for journalists," tallying 32 journalist killings or 46 percent of the 69 deaths since the supposed restoration of democracy in 1986, the most recent of which is radio broadcaster Rolando Morales of DWMD Radio Mindanao Network on July 3. In addition, this year alone, 39 political killings, so far, have been recorded. None of these cases have been solved or, at the very least, sufficiently investigated.

The spate of killings signifies an ominous context under which our civil liberties are severely undermined. Suspiciously, the numbers swell as the people's discontent intensifies, nurtured by the Arroyo government's anti-people policies such as the Value Added Tax rate increase, perpetual price hikes of petroleum products and basic commodities, and stagnation of wages. Such trend, moreover, shows no sign of arrest as the administration currently pushes for the approval of the Anti-Terrorism Bill and the National ID system, to keep tabs on its critics and legalize such coercion.

History, however, assures us that the acts of intimidation currently employed by the administration are the last straws – the last ditch efforts to preserve a dysfunctional, coercive, and desperate regime. For along with the people's intensified clamor for Arroyo to step down is an equally potent call for claiming and upholding our civil liberties.


ENOUGH OF GLORIA!             
UPHOLD CIVIL LIBERTIES!           
STOP KILLING JOURNALISTS!                       
PUSH FOR A PATRIOTIC AND
DEMOCRATIC COUNCIL OF LEADERS!

MANIFESTO RE: PERSPECTIVE

MANIFESTO OF UNITY AGAINST THE INCESSANT INTERVENTION

OF CHANCELLOR WILFREDO P. DAVID IN THE SELECTION

OF THE UPLB PERSPECTIVE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

and in the PERSPECTIVE'S OPERATIONS

 

 

We, students and teachers of the University of the Philippines Los Baños, hereby denounce the unwarranted intervention of Chancellor Wilfredo P. David in the selection of the editor-in-chief (EIC) of the UPLB Perspective and in the publication’s operations.

 

We believe that Chancellor David’s intervention in the 2004 editorial selection is a blatant disrespect of the functions of the Committee which is stipulated in the Revised Rules and Regulations Governing the Publication of the UPLB Perspective.

 

That the Committee exerted their best effort in conducting a carefully coded editorial examination, implemented a normalized average ranking scheme to minimize bias as well as the high variances in the scores given by each committee member, spent one whole night immediately after the examination to deliberate on their scores and consequently recommended the lone top-scorer to be the next EIC.

Even if there were examinees with minimal differences in scores as a result of the normalized scoring, the Committee resolved to recommend the examinee who garnered the highest score in accordance with Article 6 of the Revised Rules and Regulations Governing the Publication of the UPLB Perspective.

 

We believe that Chancellor David gravely abused his discretion in imposing a new grading scheme which disregarded the scheme approved by the 2004 Editorial Exam Committee, in effect creating a new recommendation that was not upheld by all committee members.  That the said controversy in the EIC selection process mars the integrity of the editorial exam committee and is being rendered powerless with Chancellor David’s interventionist tactics.  The intervention also violates the tiered decision-making process in the university that gives way to an authoritarian system that even the President of the UP System rejected in a memorandum regarding the non-renewal of several teachers.

 

We are aware that the recent intervention in the A.Y. 2004-2005 editorial selection process is the third time that Chancellor David intervened in the affairs of the student publication, the first being the editorship controversy in 2002 and the second being the restraint of the Perspective funding in 2003-2004.

 

WE, THEREFORE, UNITE AND CALL for an end to Chancellor David’s incessant intervention in the selection of the UPLB Perspective editor and the publication’s operations.  We firmly believe that the intervention of Chancellor David in the publication’s operations is a deliberate and intolerable infringement on the autonomy of the student institution.

 Respect the Ad Hoc Editorial Committee’s autonomy!

No to Chancellor David’s Intervention!  

Uphold the Autonomy of the UPLB Perspective!

Uphold Campus Press Freedom!
