“This is our U.P. Stay off our grounds. #DefendUP“
This is the strong message of Kapamilya actress Agot Isidro on Twitter to the military and the police after the Department of National Defense cancelled of the so-called Enrile-Soto accord that prohibits state forces from entering the premises of UP.
Edit: According to Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles, the UP-DND agreement that was terminated by the DND Chief Lorenzana was not the Soto-Enrile accord but the 1989 Abueva-Ramos accord. [Link here]
Agot Isidro’s tweet did not get much attention on Twitter as shown in the dismal number of retweets and likes in Twitterverse.
Despite the low engagement of Agot’s tweet, pro-Duterte influencer named Tio Moreno still went ahead and wrote an open letter addressed to the Kapamilya actress on Facebook, to the entertainment of fellow Duterte supporters.
To start off, Moreno told Agot Isidro that graduating from UP does not automatically make an alumna owner or part owner of the State U.
“Hindi porket nag-aral ka sa UP— owner ka na or sa inyo na yan “
Moreno went on to assure Agot Isidro that UP will continue to enjoy a police and soldiers-free campus, academic freedom and freedom of expression as stated by the DND.
“The Department of National Defense (DND) is clear on its statement that they do not intend to station military or police inside UP nor they do wish to suppress activist groups, academic freedom, and freedom of expression.”
Moreno explained to Agot Isidro the logic behind the cancellation of the so-called Soto-Enrile accord.
“Its main goal is to reach out to the youths and provide them with another perspectives on our status quo. The reason why there are many activists and terrorists is the fact that they only listen to their side. They only see what they want to see and they only hear what they want to hear.”
Moreno posed a not so tricky question to Agot Isidro to throw her off.
“If UP allows NPA recruitment inside the campus (there are evidences from NTF-ELCAC tho) then why are they not allowing our military to do the same (like giving youths info about the government)?”
Moreno went on to belittle Agot Isidro’s Magna Cum Laude award when she graduated in UPD.
“Tumahimik ka Agot! You’re a living manifestation that not all Magna Cum Laudes are intelligent; others are just sipsip.”
Moreno ended the FB post by joking that Agot Isidro should better shut up and avoid triggering Jinkee Pacquiao.
“PS: Huwag mo e trigger si Jinkee Pacquiao baka bilhin niya ang entire UP. HAHAHA”
Dear Agot, Hindi porket nag-aral ka sa UP— owner ka na or sa inyo na yan 🙄 The Department of National Defense (DND)…Posted by Tio Moreno on Tuesday, January 19, 2021
