Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita got a surprise from students of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. Instead of a “warm welcome”, some graduating students staged a protest as he started his keynote speech. Ermita was dumbfounded, as you can see from this video:
GMANews.tv described it as a “rude welcome”. Inquirer.net meanwhile just reported what happened: Students called Ermita a “berdugo”.
Ditto for an ABS-CBNNews.com report. SunStar also reported about the incident.
At a time when lies dominate government discourse, it is truly good to see the young people step up and tell the truth.
