DLSZ Calls Off Classes and Office Operations on Sept. 21

In response to the call of the De La Salle Philippines to express our indignation against the spate of violent killings and attacks on our democratic institutions, and as part of our continuing efforts to uphold human rights, democracy and justice, De La Salle Santiago Zobel School (DLSZ) calls off classes and office operations and encourages everyone to join the mobilization happening on September 21, 2017.

Together with the representatives from the De La Salle Philippines, DLSU Manila and LSGH, our group will go the Commission on Human Rights grounds in Diliman, Quezon City to join with other organizations such as the Coalition Against Marcos Burial (CAMB), IDEFEND, Katipunan Youth Resist and Tindig Pilipinas.
