1. Students join 'Marcos Not A Hero' nationwide protests
Students from De La Salle University, DLSU Law, College of Saint Benilde, St. Scholastica's College, and Arellano Law kicked off the anti-Marcos protests this week with a rally and noise barrage held at Taft Avenue on November 24. The young generation, together with their teachers and school administrators, condemn historical revisionism and express their outrage over the hasty and sneaky burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
On November 25, students from various universities in Metro Manila (University of the Philippines in Diliman and Manila, the University of Santo Tomas, De La Salle University, and St. Scholastica's College, to name a few) marched to Luneta with other sectors, to join the older generation's fight to seek justice for Martial Law victims and to make sure one of the darkest periods in the country's history is not repeated. One student who joined the rally urges others not to believe everything on social media, but to research and read, especially about the human rights atrocities and plunder during the Martial Law.
The "Marcos Not A Hero" protest on November 25 was dubbed as the National Day of Rage and Unity. On November 30, another mass protest is scheduled at the People Power Monument.

Posting a collage of photos of wife Neri Naig and Baby Alfonso, the new dad wrote: "I will do everything in my power para maalagaan sila ng maayos, to provide for them, to spoil them, and to give them an advantage sa future. I will save and invest all my money for them. I will take care of myself better para mabantayan ko sila hanggang sa pagtanda ko. I will behave and not do anything stupid, I will work harder, and spend as much time with them as possible." In another post, Chito talked about how proud he is of Neri, who is really afraid of injections and needles. "Kung alam nyo lang kung gaano kahirap yung pinagdaanan nya sa pagbubuntis at panganganak, at kung paano nya buong tapang na tiniis at hinarap, mabibilib din talaga kayo," he wrote. Chito added that it is true what they say that giving birth is a 50-50 risk. "Saludo talaga ako sa lahat ng mga nanay," Chito said. (pep.ph)

If you're catching the new Disney Pixar animated movie Moana this month, you'll also get to watch a new short film that traditionally airs before the main film. Inner Workings is a peek into the life of an office worker who decides to follow his heart instead of his head, and thus, breaks his daily routine. And yes, taking inspiration from the hit movie Inside Out, the short will focus on the head and his heart, plus his stomach and lungs as he is lured by the sun, sea, food, and fun. Catch Inner Workings with Moana (remember to enter the theaters early in time for the trailers) on November 30. (empireonline.com)
