#TigilPasada #NoToJeepneyPhaseOut

Were you affected by the jeepney strike today?

Jeepney drivers have been long burdened by incessant oil hikes that stem from the government’s policy of oil deregulation. It allows oil cartels to connive and set oil price at high rates.

To add, the Duterte administration is bent on imposing additional taxes on fuel products on top of the twelve percent (12%) value-added tax (VAT). Among the products covered are diesel, which will be imposed a tax of P6 per liter, as well as cooking gas and bunker fuel for generating electricity. These levies will hit not only jeepney drivers but the middle class and low-income earners as well.

Now they are threatened by the planned jeepney phaseout in the face of modernization. Only big companies can afford vehicle replacement and small operators will be edged out.

Instead of perceiving it as mere inconvenience, consider it as a reason to challenge the government’s neoliberal policies (i.e. deregulation and privatization).

SUC/CHED 2015 budget hearing

Classes were suspended today but our student leaders trooped the House of Representatives to lobby against UP and education budget cuts. We made our legislators know that we oppose the massive profiteering from tuition and other fees.

We forwarded our unity statement signed by 150 student formations and clinched the support of HOR Committee Chair for Higher and Technical Education for greater state subsidy to UP & SUCs.

We are resolute in our demands and we shall carry them in the campus, halls, offices, and streets!

Tuloy ang laban, Iskolar ng Bayan! Para sa karapatan sa edukasyon ng lahat ng kabataan! #UPFight #StopCuts #JunkFees
