The much awaited game today between arch-rivals Ateneo de Manila University Eagles and the De La Salle University Archers will be marked as a day of protest against the controversial national issues as members of both Catholic schools are requested to wear something black as a sign of disapproval of the spate of killings in the Duterte administration’s campaign against drugs and the possible burial of former deposed President Ferdinand E. Marcos at the ‘Libingan ng mga Bayani.’
The invite comes in light of sentiments by DLSU and ADMU opposing the Marcos burial at LNMB and concerning the rise of EJKs in the country.
