Yesterday was another fun day for Jun Lozada. Administrators of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines led by Dante Guevarra, whose presidency (like his boss in Malacañang) is hounded by questions of legitimacy, purportedly tried to prevent Lozada from stepping foot in their campus. Classes that morning were unceremoniously suspended and the campus was asked to be cleared due to a supposed bomb threat. Students were unconvinced: they had scheduled Lozada to speak before them that very day. Almost immediately as the officials suspended classes, the students massed up in front of the main gates and pushed their way into the campus grounds, paving the way for Lozada’s vehicle to enter.
In front of a cheering crowd of thousands, Lozada delivered his speech outside the main school building, where he had been forbidden by administrators to enter.
Here is Pinoy Weekly photo correspondent Danny Pata’s coverage of the event:
