DLSU joins Senate vigil, more protests
Macapagal-Arroyo, NGOs discuss issues with Lasallians in separate forums

De La Salle University-Manila has lined up more activities, including participation in mass actions and holding of symposia, to ensure that the ongoing Senate impeachment proceedings will be transparent and just.

Vice President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

CONSULTATION WITH LASALLIANS. Vice President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo presents her government reform agenda before students and faculty during the GenXchange forum at the M. Gaerlan Conservatory last November 23.

The University joined The Chain of Impeachment, organized by the Kongreso ng Masang Pilipino (KOMPIL), at the Quezon City Circle on November 28, 3-7 p.m. Lasallians took part in human chain formation, noise barrage, and a vigil.

The Center for Social Concern and Action led the group from DLSU-Manila. The contingent left La Salle via the school bus at 1:30 p.m.

Last week, DLSU -Manila held separate forums featuring Vice President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and non-government organizations to generate awareness on the various national issues generated by the current crisis in Malacañang and to give students, faculty, and staff the venue to voice their concerns.

The Marketing Communication Office, sponsor of the GenXchange forum last November 23 at the Marilen Gaerlan Conservatory, invited Arroyo as guest speaker.

For its part, Ang Pahayagang Plaridel, one of the major student publications in the campus, invited two non-government organizations—the youth-led Anakbayan and COURAGE, an association of government employees’ unions—to interact with students last November 24 at the William Shaw Little Theater.

Meanwhile, the DLSU System will also participate at the Senate Watch. A contingent from the System Schools will watch over the December 15 trial proceedings. The Social Action Offices of the System will meet today to finalize the details.

COSCA leads DLSU-Manila in consolidating its resources in a project that allies the University with KOMPIL to watch the Senate trials. In the coming weeks, the Lasallian Pastoral Office will welcome former President Corazon Aquino on December 12 to lead the community in prayer. The Political Science Society will initiate a motorcade around the Philippine Senate and Malacañang.

The University has embarked on a massive signature campaign calling for Estrada’s resignation, gathering support from our parents, students, faculty, administrators, staff, and alumni.

The Lasallian community joins the mobilization activities as part of its responsibility to safeguard the nation’s future.
