Yes to life! to hold noise barrage in protest of death penalty bill’s approval

Mar 7, 2017 @ 21:11

Students from Ateneo de Manila University are set to hold another rally along Katipunan Wednesday (March 8) to protest the approval on third reading of the bill reinstating the death penalty.

In announcing the rally, ADMU’s student council said: “The Sanggunian decries this decision, a step closer to sanctioning state-sponsored death in our country once more.”

“We call on the Ateneo de Manila community to respond to the nationwide call to come out and make noise, to express our outcry against the passing of the bill at the Lower House, but moreso to reaffirm our commitment to work for truth, justice, and life,” it added.

The rally will take place along Katipunan starting 12 noon.

The university will hold a joint program with students from Miriam College at 12:30 p.m.

Ateneans are urged to wear white and bring noisemakers.

    Kawawang bayan at mga kabataan, hindi nila alam na para naman talaga sa kanila ang lahat, sa matiwasay at mapayapa nilang kinabukasan. Mas nanaisin yata nila na manatiling malamya ang gobyernong ito at lalo pang lumala ang mga kriminalidad. Kawawang mga magulang at mga kabataan.. nagbabayad na ng pagkamamahal sa mga paaralang sikat, nagagamit pa para labanan ang mga nagmamalasakit. Bakit kaya hindi natin sabay-sabay na pag-aralan at sundin ang kung ano ang nakasaad sa Banal na Aklat dahil ito ang syang nakakaalam sa naturalesa nating mga tao at sa kahihinatnan natin sa lahat ng panahong tayo ay sumusuway sa mga kautusan. Pag-aralang mabuti ang parusang kamatayan, kung ito nga ba ay kalupitan at kasamaaan, o ito ay mabuti para sa ating lahat, sa maayos na pamamalakad. Kailangan lamang naman na gampanan ng mga kinauukulan ang kanilang mga papel sa lipunang ito at maging tapat sa kanilang paninilbihan.
