No Student Left Behind: Ateneo prepares for mass academic strike in protest of the government's poor calamity response

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"We cannot sit idly by and do our modules, ignoring the fact that the Philippine nation is in shambles." -Ateneo students

Students from Ateneo have pledged not to submit any academic requirements starting November 18 as a protest against the ineffective typhoon response of the government and this would last until a proper response is made.

'The national government must act now or step down from their positions. No compromises,' says the statement of Ateneo students.

“Babagsak kayo.” - Palace spokesman Harry Roque responds to the students of Ateneo de Manila University who declared a mass student strike to condemn what they call the government’s “criminally neglectful response” to the recent typhoons that ravaged the country.

“Mawawalan kayo ng kinabukasan”??? 

To work collectively to demand accountability and competence from the government? Do you realize that what these students are fighting for IS their future?

Harry Roque is scum. Pass it on.

“Walang babagsak.” - Ateneo teacher Richard Bolisay counters Roque’s statement that students holding a mass strike will fail in school if they continue the protest action.

Some students from Ateneo have houses that also flooded till the second floor, with some houses completely submerged. They don’t deserve this gross negligence — NOBODY does. 

and that is precisely why this is such a HOLLOW response from a Presidential Spokesperson because we should never value grades over LIVES.

Ateneo de Manila University’s student publication The GUIDON on Saturday said that “over 150” students will go on academic strike starting Wednesday next week, Nov. 18, as protest vs the government’s response to recent calamities. 

"So I appeal to the teachers to please get to know where your students are from; reach out to them and be considerate. This is when the distance that's created by online learning needs to be crossed over for cura personalis." - Office of the VP, Ateneo Loyola Schools 

"Now more than ever, the entire Ateneo community, together with the Filipino people must strengthen their ranks and mobilize against the fascist Duterte regime." 

- League of Filipino Students

The Ateneo community is taking action, both academically and politically. 

From the Ateneo to UE, we're seeing classes being suspended school after school!

This is brought about by the collective action of our students for their demands!

If we can achieve this, then we can certainly achieve greater demands in holding the Duterte regime accountable!

  1. I think preparing for exams is always a big stress for students. That is why it is important to learn how to find a balance between learning and rest. Services like this one always help me with this.
