Enraged PUP students Burn Chairs during a Protest, Under Investigation


On Monday, some Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) students burned chairs and facilities to protest hikes in tuition, some reportedly in sympathy for the death of a University of the Philippines freshman, Kristel Tejada, who took her own life allegedly because she could not afford tuition.

PUP President Emmanuel de Guzman on Tuesday said the school is now investigating the protest action of several students on Monday which resulted in the destruction of school property.

De Guzman also warned that students who participated in the throwing and burning of chairs may either be suspended or expelled from the school.

Meanwhile, Charley Urquiza of the Sentral na Konseho ng Mag-aaral-PUP claimed that the burned chairs were already broken and therefore were considered garbage.

He said the students condemn the high tuition fees being imposed by universities like PUP which burden students like Kristel Tejada of University of the Philippines (UP) Manila.

Tejada, a 16-year-old Behavioral Sciences student, committed suicide last Friday reportedly after being forced to leave the university for failing to enroll.

DiversityHuman.com won't make any comment but instead we will make use of a photo which we grabbed from facebook to air our disappointments over the disgusting actions of PUP students. Its message is clear and I hope everyone understands it too.

"Those chairs are bought using taxpayers' money ... You have no right to burn it."
