Keep Lumad children in school! END military attacks on schools!
The National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP), the largest and broadest alliance of student councils / governments / federations in the country, asserts the right of every Filipino, especially the indigenous and the Lumad children, to quality, free and violence-free and military-free education. Schools are not military camps! Let us support the 2,896 Lumad children’s and their teachers’ and parents‘ fight against military intrusion, camping and attacks on their schools. We hold accountable the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Aquino government for allowing the military to camp in and for endorsing the closure of atleast 24 schools of Salugpongan Ta’Tanu Igkanogon Community Learning Center (STTICLC) and Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc. Academy (MISFI Academy). We encourage everyone to sign and spread the petition! click this link: SIGN THE PETITION
