“Bad eggs, right conduct”

September 28, 2006. Much has been said about the egg-pelting incident more than a week ago when some UP students threw eggs at Armed Forces Chief Hermogenes Esperon. Hm, let me just say that I side with the egg-throwers. Buti nga itlog lang ang ipinangganti sa mga balang kumitil ng napakaraming buhay ng mga aktibista. It was a simply a response to terrible disrespect for hundreds of human lives. For as long as ordinary folk are void of the justice they deserve, incidents like these will happen. I would have done the same if I was as angry and frustrated. The prevailing system has left these people with no other venues nor recourse. I perfectly understand the actions of my fellow students.
