Students and union members protest at the entrance of NISMED in the September 24 Search for the Next UP President public forum held in UP Diliman

Editor's note: If one picture is worth a thousand words, then the pictures posted below of the protest actions engaged in by U.P. students and union members must be worth several thousand words worth of turgid prose. The following protest action took place in front of the NISMED Auditorium at U.P. Diliman on September 24 and was timed to coincide with the 2nd forum for the 2010 Search for a new U.P. president where the eleven nominees for U.P. president presented their visions and answered questions.

In the spirit of American broadcast jorunalist Edward R. Murrow who deliberately lowered his microphone on a curb so he could convey the sounds and hurried footsteps of people fleeing the bombing of London in the Blitz in World War II, to his listeners back in America, we are embedding below the pictures of the protest action which convey, in graphic detail, the protester's concerns ranging from and which were sent to as a link by Faculty Regent Judy Taguiwalo and taken from the Facebook page of the All U.P. Workers Union. These concerns are many of which the next U.P. President will have to grapple with; but we will let the placards, the streamers and the expressions on the faces do all the talking below.
