In local news, the Quezon City Science High School (QCSHS) have suspended four student-bloggers who criticized their school’s principal in their blog. The principal has also ordered the closing of two of the school’s publications, Electron and Banyuhay.
The blog contained articles and photos of the school principal’s policies about irregular lunch hours and required subjects. The victim, Mrs. Zenaida Sadsad was even told in the blog that she “must die”.
The punishment given to the students is obviously unjust and unnecessary. In a democratic country like the Philippines, the youth should be encouraged to stand up for what they believe in and voice out their opinions. Persons with this kind of attitude are fundamental ingredients in the progress of a country. The four blogger-activists are innocent!
The blog institution of theliberatedman.tk protests in the strongest possible words the actions done by the school. We are all born equally and we are all born with the freedom of free speech.
