Naked UP students run vs Charter change

Filed Under: Charter change, Protest

MANILA, Philippines?Members of the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity, which included three student council leaders, staged the group?s annual oblation run at the Palma Hall of the University of the Philippines campus in Diliman, Quezon City, at exactly 12 noon on Tuesday.

But this year?s run of naked APO members wearing only bonnets and dark blue masks failed to impress Monica Narisma, a sophomore business administration and accountancy major.

"It was uneventful because there were only a few of them," Narisma told the Philippine Daily Inquirer at the steps of the Palma Hall where at least 10 naked masked men paraded for a cheering crowd composed mostly of students.

She said she had been a regular spectator of the event, even while she was still in high school at the nearby Miriam College.

But for Tami Evette Reyes, a freshman at the College of Engineering, the event was "terrific" and said she?s happy to be part of the "tradition."

The runners, who offered roses to the spectators, expressed their opposition to Charter change, particularly to any extension of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo?s term. They also called for the protection of the environment.
