‘Please don’t mess with UP’ - Kiko Pangilinan

 


Department of Nation Defense (DND) through Secretary Delfin Lorenzana decision to terminate the agreement which bars the members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and police officers from the Philippine National Police (PNP) entering the grounds of the University of the Philippines (UP) without the latter’s permission has been met with lot of protests.

Liberal Party’s Senator Risa Hontiveros has slammed the decision of the DND to abrogate the agreement which bars the members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and police officers from the Philippine National Police (PNP).

“Tinutulan natin ang panghihimasok ng diktador noon. UP has always been and will always be a citadel of freedom and democracy. No to the unilateral and arbitrary termination of the Enrile-Soto Accord. Pakiusap lang. Please don’t mess with UP,” he tweeted.

“During my term as USC chair in 1986 what was governing was the Enrile-Soto accord of 1981. The precursor was the 1981 Enrile-Soto accord entered into by Sonia Soto, LFS Natl Chair and then Defense Secretary Enrile,” he recalled.

“The 1981 accord covered all campuses nationwide. The agreement was forged when a synchronized nationwide student boycott was successfully organized but many student activists were arrested and jailed…..” Pangilinan said.

“The nationwide protests however continued despite the arrests,” he recalled.

“To diffuse the tension, the DND agreed to negotiate with the students culminating in the signing of the Enrile-Soto 1981 accord. The DND had to notify campus officials prior to their entry into campus grounds,” Pangilinan said.
