MANILA, Philippines – While Filipinos focused their attention on the anti-Marcos burial rally held Friday at the Luneta Park, another group of protesters did their own thing at the University of the Philippines (U.P.) in Diliman, Quezon City.
Members of the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) fraternity at U.P. ran naked through a student crowd with only their faces covered to protest against the hero’s burial for the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
The Great Oblation Run, also known as “Ritual Dance of the Brave,” is a long-held tradition in the state university that began in 1977. It is held as a way for fraternity members to make known their stand on important national issues.
In addition to protesting the Marcos Burial at Libingan Ng Mga Bayani, they also asked the Duterte administration to stop extrajudicial killings and to end contractual labor.
But instead of rallying the crowd to support their demands, the protestors were criticized for displaying their small penises, as can be seen in a social media post by one very disappointed observer (see photo.)
