Several faculty, students, alumni and friends gathered on November 9, 2016, at the University’s East Quadrangle flag pole area for an indignation assembly and candle lighting to protest the Supreme Court decision allowing the Marcos burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

An impromptu program with rousing speeches were made by Atty. Golda Benjamin, a College of Law faculty, and students Shamah Bulangis and Renz Torres. Dumagueteño David Ryan Quimpo, also shared his own experience during Martial Law.

Participants lighted candles and sang “Bayan Ko”, a Freddie Aguilar composition popularized during the EDSA Revolution in 1986 that ousted then President Ferdinand E. Marcos. The activity started and ended with prayers for the country from Karl James Villarmea and Maya Angelique Jajalla.
