Despite heavy rains on the night of July 25, the “Battle of the Bands” organized by Stop K to 12 Alliance, Kabataan Partylist, and All Workers Unity pushed through at the Krus na Ligas Covered Court.

The event was created to voice out people’s dissent of the Aquino administration’s principal education reform K to 12 program. Set as a venue to protest against commercialization and privatization of the educational system in the country, the bands performed songs in line with the theme, “Education is not for sale”.

In light of the coming State of the Nation on July 27, the organizers encouraged the audience to take part in the future assemblies to oppose K to 12 program along with other anti-people policies implemented in Aquino’s five years of presidency.
