Please encourage your friends to support the online petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/cfad001/petition.html
On Monday, I together with the haircut policy abolition supporters will go around Beato Angelico, the pavs, kantunan, and other areas with CFAD students, to disseminate information on the unjust haircut policy. Also, we will encourage those who support to sign the petition which we will submit to the appropriate university officials.
I think that we have to begin acting and redirecting our own destinies. For years now, many CFAD students have felt the unjust policies but have feared to go against it because they are alone. Now, nobody is alone. Every CFAD student must stand up for his fellow student in order to get things done, of course always in a peaceful way.
Over at petitiononline, the petition can be signed by anybody from students, alumni, faculty members, even parents. Practically anybody. But the paper petition is for the students only. This is our initiative against policies that directly affect us and our rights as students and as citizens.
I will be at room 801 tomorrow but some volunteers will go around the Beato Angelico area to solicit signatures. Let us all fight for this cause together. The real message we want to send; THAT WE ARE NOT APATHETIC, THAT WE ARE CONCERENED ABOUT OUR RIGHTS, AND THAT WE ARE WILLING TO UNITE FOR A CAUSE AND GO AGAINST IT PEACEFULLY, WHILE BEING GOOD STUDENTS AT THE SAME TIME.
