We, the constituents of the University of the Philippines Cebu, join all Cebuanos, Filipinos and the rest of the world as we STRIKE! DANCE! RISE! to END violence against women and children!
On Feb. 14, we will spend our Valentine’s Day with all the women of all walks in life, joining them in their struggle towards liberation from abuse, discrimination, prejudice, stereotypes and other forms of violence.
Ayala Cebu Terraces will be rocked by the shaking of our bodies, stomping of our feet and raising of our hands to the tune of “Isang Bilyong Babae”. But before that, we, from UP Cebu, will also be holding our own UP Cebu Rising at 1:30pm; afterwards, we’ll march to Ayala, quarter to 3pm.
