The cultural National-Democratic mass organization ALAY SINING, including its college chapters in the University, together with the thousands of members of its nationwide counterpart Kabataang Artista para sa Tunay na Kalayaan (KARATULA), proudly supports the following Artista ng Bayan in their candidacy for student council posts in UP Diliman:
COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS STUDENT COUNCIL
COLLEGE OF HOME ECONOMICS STUDENT COUNCIL
COLLEGE OF ARTS AND LETTERS STUDENT COUNCIL
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. #
