GMA Soap Opera Head writer dissuades, pleads Ateneo, UP students from joining “academic strike”

GMA 7 Head Soap writer Suzette Severo Doctolero has tried her convincing power to Ateneo and UP students who are planning to stop attending their classes until President Duterte is ousted.

Doctolero, in a calm tone, told the students she perfectly understand where their anger is coming from but she clarified, threatening not to attend their classes because of an advocacy is not right.

“Mga bata, gets ko ang galit ninyo sa tila makupad na aksyon ng gobyerno sa mga nabiktima ni Uly.. pero huwag naman gamitin ang eskwela, na hindi kayo papasok para sa ipinaglalaban ninyo.”

According to her, the students will end up miserable, especially their parents who are paying for their expensive tuition fees (Ateneo) just to send them to school despite the pandemic.

“Kayo rin naman ang kawawa, lalo ang magulang ninyo- na nagbayad ng sobrang mahal na tution (lalo na kung sa Ateneo ka) para lang makapag aral ka pa rin ngayong pandemic.”

Doctolero coaxed students to be sensitive to their parents. She said what they intend to do is akin to a child who refuses to eat one’s food because he or she is upset. She asked if they are not attending classes because they are mad at Duterte? Doctolero remarked that if Duterte have the courage to have those addicts and pushers k*lled, would he even care of their tantrums? He will just laugh at them, Doctolero said.

“Maging senstive naman kayo sa aming mga magulang ninyo. Parang bata lang talaga, na ‘di kakain kasi nagtatampo, ganern? Eto, ‘di kayo papasok kasi galit kayo kay Digs? Nyeh. Nagawa nga magpapatay ng mga adik at pusher, pansinin kaya ang tampururot ninyo? Pagtatawanan lang kayo niyan, oy.”

Doctolero talked about other means of protesting without hurting their families’ wallets. Doctolero suggested starting the “black profile pic” trend as a way of expressing their anger.

“May ibang paraan naman. Na hindi sarili ninyo at bulsa ng mga magulang ninyo ang pinaparusahan (di ba?). Halimbawa: ipauso ang pagba-black ng profile pic (o kaya may isang profile pic) na gagamitin sa mga account sa socmed (fb, insta at teitter) para ipakita ang galit. Ayan, sure ako marami ang papatol o makikiuso diyan.”

“Mas ramdam pa ang ipinaglalaban ninyo kasi nasa socmed agad,” Doctolero said in a forceful tone.

But not attending classes? Doctolero thumbed down such antics. She said if she was the mother of one of the students, she will not hesitate to raise her hand against her child for wasting the tuition fee she worked hard to earn. She dissuaded students from going that route by pushing emotional buttons and employing guilt-trip tactics. Meanwhile, Doctolero turned serious and said there are better options to express their anger or dissatisfaction. She sounded confident if they do their protest right, many people might join their cause.

“Pero yung hindi kayo papasok? Kung anak kita at ako ang nanay mo, mahahampas kita dahil sinayang mo ang tution mo na pinaghirapan kong kitain. Pandemic ngayon, marami ang hindi nakapag aral kasi nawalan ng work ang mga magulang kaya maswerte ka kasi may pera kayo— so huwag brat. Pumasok. Baguhin ang plano. Ibahin ang paraan ng protesta. Marami ang sasali sigurado. Pag tama ang paraan. LabyuOl.”
