QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Dozens of student activists at the University of the Philippines were expelled for their participation at a recent protest rally seeking to overthrow the Duterte government.
During the nationwide protest, the students displayed a ‘memorandum’ declaring Duterte and the U.S. as the “number one terrorists.”
A spokesperson for the U.P. Chancellor at U.P. Diliman said that the activists were expelled not for their political activity but for bringing shame to the state university.
In their “memo,” the students committed a grammatical error that even a third grader wouldn’t make.
The memo said, “We, student councils from across the UP Systems, declares…”
Third graders know that the verb used should have been “declare.”
There were other grammatical errors in the memo.
”We apologize to the Filipino taxpayers for using their hard-earned money to fund the education of these students,” the spokesperson said.
