QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Senator Antonio Trillanes, whose term ends this year, will soon be called Professor Trillanes, thanks to a new class that he will be teaching at the University of the Philippines Diliman Campus starting next semester.
Trillanes, a staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, is notorious for the two coup attempts he and his military colleagues staged during the presidency of Glorica Macapagal Arroyo — the Oakwood Mutiny in 2003, and the Manila Peninsula Siege in 2007. Both attemps failed.
The U.P. Diliman Board of Regents formally approved Trillanes’ teaching stint. His class, which will be open to all U.P. students, is titled “How to stage a Coup 101.”
Hundreds of U.P. students have already expressed interest in enrolling in the class.
