April 21, 2008. One of our first public activities in the University Student Council (USC) was a unity candle-lighting event almost two weeks ago with member organizations of the League of Youth For the Environment (LYFE) in UP Diliman and some representatives from other schools. The event was part of a commemoration for the celebration of Earth Day, the day after. Hundreds of candles, formed to spell out “Save Our Home” were lit up at the Sunken Garden just after the sun set. A short program was held with speakers from various organizations all calling out for a united campaign to protect the environment, as a struggle inseparable from the various campaigns for social change.
