The stabbing of a student leader at the Vinzon’s Hall has prompted Anakbayan Chairperson Vencer Crisostomo to tell the media that the militant group blames the budget cut for UPD’s poor security.
“This is not unfounded,” one professor from UP said when asked to comment about the robbery that took place at Vinzon's Hall. The number of security guards inside the over 400 hectare campus dropped from 149 in 2011 to 111 this 2012.
The P13 million slash from the original P82 million allotted for campus security has been a concern for many student groups.
Outsiders say that UP demands too much but what most do not know is that the Philippine General Hospital is also covered by the budget given to UP.
