The communities of Ateneo and La Salle have been invited to stand in solidarity with victims of human rights.
Members of the Ateneo de Manila University have been invited to wear black at the upcoming UAAP Season 79 men's basketball first round encounter between Ateneo and De La Salle as a sign of solidarity, according to a memo that has been circulated coming from the office of Ateneo president Fr. Jose Ramon T. Villamin.
According to the announcement, members of the Ateneo community are invited to wear black clothing or black clothing accessories to signify "solidarity with victims of human rights violations and all others struggling to uphold human rights in the country."
Members of the DLSU community were also invited to do the same, as announced on the Twitter account of The Lasallian, DLSU's official student publication.
