On the Last Day of Budget Delibs: Students Assert Adequate Gov’t Subsidy and Not DAP for Education and other social services

Amidst the BS Aquino administration’s claim that there is no budget cut for state universities and colleges (SUCs) this 2015, the National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) underscored that only a measly third of the budget request of SUCs was approved by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM). NUSP, together with other student and youth groups, trooped to Congress today, the last day of budget deliberations, to assert for not only a higher but an adequate allocation for SUCs. NUSP highlighted that of the P122.7 billion budget request of SUCs, only around P43 billion was approved by…

Numbers Game: Student leaders denounce 54 congressmen’s shooting down of impeachment complaints vs. Aquino

“We’ve been expecting this from Aquino’s allies in Congress. The Committee on Justice, dominated by yellow minions, hastily shot down the three impeachment complaints sponsored by the Makabayan bloc of progressive partylists. Not only does this show that the said committee is a lapdog of Aquino, but it has denigrated itself as the Committee of Injustice. Sadly, this is how the so-called democratic system of Aquino works,” stresses Ms.  Sarah Elago, Convenor Youth Act Now and National President of the National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP). “Right from the onset, we did not have illusions that this may…

NUSP Assails Political Harassment of University Student Leaders; Uphold Student Rights and Welfare!

The National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) condemns the continuing campus repression and student rights violations in various universities and colleges in the country. Together with the Rise for Education (R4E) Alliance and the College Editors Guild of the Philippines, the student union calls on the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the BS Aquino administration to own up to their responsibility of protecting the rights of the students. A clear case of student rights violation and harassment due to political affinity is that of Mr. Vincent Queja, former President of the Supreme Student Council of De La…

Student union to Malacanang: “DAP done in bad taste, not in good faith; DAPat managot ang lahat ng sangkot!”

Even before the Supreme Court (SC) ruled that BS Aquino’s Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) violates the 1987 Philippine Constitution, the National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) the largest and broadest alliance of more than 650 members student councils all over the country, together with anti-pork barrel system and anti-corruption alliance Youth for Accountability and Truth Now (Youth ACT Now), have long been exposing that DAP, as well as Aquino’s presidential pork barrel, is illegal, anti-people and a testament of corruption in this twisted “tuwid na daan”. The SC ruling comes as no surprise. While it declares DAP unconstitutional,…

Students Score PUP Admin for the Proposed 830% Tuition Hike; Aquino’s Educ Reform Program Exposed as Commercialization, Privatization

The National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) is one with the Ugnayan ng mga Mag-aaral Laban sa Komersyalisasyon (UMAKSYON PUP), Alyansa ng Nagkakaisang Konseho ng Politeknikong Unibersidad ng Pilipinas (ANAK PUP), the PUP Office of the Student Regent, and the Sentral na Konseho ng mga Mag-aaral ng PUP (SKM-PUP) in demanding for the stoppage of the proposed 830% tuition increase in PUP, from P12 per unit to P100 per unit.

The Farce that is the Pork Barrel King: Dapat Managot ang Lahat ng Sangkot!

The Aquino administration is now trembling in fear due to the people’s clamour to prosecute and hold accountable not only Napoles, Revilla and the rest of the gang, but also the pork barrel king himself, Mr. Noynoy Aquino, and his ilk. The National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP), the largest and broadest alliance of student councils, governments and federations of over 650-membership nationwide, strongly calls out “Dapat managot ang lahat ng sangkot!” Aquino and his band of culprits, however which way they try to wash their dirty hands regarding the pork barrel scam, will never be able to…

Student and youth groups padlock CHED; Call to rescind all approved and pending tuition hikes

The National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) and the Rise for Education Alliance have had enough of the Commission on Higher Education’s (CHED) and the Aquino government’s systematized abandonment of its responsibility to education. The yearly increase in tuition and school fees, the perennial budget cuts to state education, the increasing number of dropouts and out-of-school youths, and the intensifying violation of student rights are mere manifestations of the systemic problem of Philippine education worsened by CHED and Aquino. Padlock the Paper Tiger Students and youth trooped CHED today, May 29, 2014, to literally and figuratively “padlock” the…

Tuition is high even in SUCs; Students enraged over Malacanang’s apathy –NUSP

It would be too much to ask from the students and citizens to forgive Malacanang, for Malacanang doesn’t know what it is saying and what it is doing. Malacanang, through Presidential Communication Operation Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio ‘Sonny’ Coloma Jr., is undeniably illogical in reasoning. The students are calling for a tuition moratorium but Malacanang provides us an insensitive response: if students and parents cannot afford to pay high tuition, then they can simply transfer to state universities and colleges (SUCs). It is symptomatic of a government that does not know the real conditions of Philippine education. Malacanang is actually…

NUSP assails Aquino, CHED for being agents of tuition increase; Students assert for a tuition hike freeze

  Students have had enough of Aquino’s negligence and of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED)’s irresponsibility in regulating tuition and other fees increases in the country. Outraged by Malacanang and CHED’s pro-tuition stance, students under the National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) converge in Mendiola and other parts of the country to protest the impending tuition and other school fees increases. “The lack of tuition regulation by Aquino and CHED is merely the tip of the iceberg. CHED has not released the results of tuition increase applications and of petitions for a tuition hike freeze. But schools…
