These visual artists, musicians, writers and actors have stayed true to Alay Sining’s orientation of using art and leadership in propagating Nationalist, Scientific and Mass-Oriented Culture and Education. They have been one with the Filipino youth and masses in the struggle for democratic rights and in the rejection of Colonial, Feudal and Bourgeois Culture. When elected, these leaders will utilize the student council office to serve and protect our rights and interests.

Alay Sining also supports the USC and college student council slates of the Student Alliance for the Democratic Rights in UP (STAND UP), the only student party in the University wherein an Artista ng Bayan would really flourish. STAND UP has proven to be the only party-alliance that fights for the genuine interests of the students and the people. It has been actively fighting with us for our rights not only during the election season, and not only within the confines of the student council office. It does not field candidates for self-interest. It builds councils with the students and the people not only for events organizing which traditional politicians already call service. It does not bow down to privatization of education and social services, or other repressive state policy at any degree. It will never be just another mouthpiece for Malacañang in the guise of student leadership, espousing confusion and divide among the studentry and the people. STAND UP is the the genuine, militant, nationalist council of students. #

People’s Scholars, fight against commercialization of education! —Alay Sining

STRIK3 THE HIKE on September 20, 2012!

Barricade the UP Board of Regents (BOR) meet!

The university assembly of ALAY SINING, including its collectives in visual arts, music, theater and creative writing, together with the organization’s chapter in the College of Fine Arts and organizers in the Colleges of Engineering, Arts and Letters, Home Economics and Education, calls on the PEOPLE’S SCHOLARS to fight against the worsening commercialization of education in the University of the Philippines and other state universities and colleges (SUCs).

Submit poems, short stories and creative non-fiction pieces for inclusion in

Singers and Musicians Audition and Composers Orientation

Tuition fee increase now comes in the forms of deceptive STFAP and Barcket B certification, PE fees and laboratory fees. We can no longer say that UP education is accessible to the people it is mandated to serve! The past two years saw our decisive and collective fight against state abandonment of education through budget cuts in SUCs. In 2010 we faced the odds with UP STRIKE LABAN SA BUDGET CUT, and in 2011 we made history with UP STRIKES BACK. Let us once again make history in moving the status quo by taking the classroom to the streets to call for our rights with our fellow youth. A third strike for our right! Let’s support our Student Regent and barricade the UP BOR meet on September 20 to register our call against tuition and other fees increase (TOFI)!

Teatro Quatro free theater workshops every thursday at 4pm

Kisapmata free photography workshops every thursday at 4pm

     

ALAY SINING also urges artists to use and hone their crafts to contribute in the fight for the right to education, and expose and oppose anti-student and anti-people policies. You may join us in our workshops and submit your works for inclusion in our exhibits, folio and album.

Monico Atienza Alternative Studies Festival
on September 15. Enlist at http://bit.ly/monicoatienza

We urge the PEOPLE’S SCHOLARS to learn how the crisis in education is not separated from democratic struggles of the other sectors in the semi-colonial and semi-feudal Philippine society. Thus, we invite everyone to attend ALAY SINING’s SINING ESKWELA alternative school and the sixth MONICO ATIENZA ALTERNATIVE STUDIES FESTIVAL. Join us in studying the society and in changing it for the interest of the students and the people.
