Oblation Run: UP Students Run & Strip Down To End Culture of Impunity in PH

MANILA – Group of men from a university fraternity ran around the University of the Philippines in Quezon City on Friday as they called for greater transparency and good governance in the Philippines.

An annual event in the UP-Diliman and named after its naked statue monument, fraternity members dashed through the halls, wearing only masks to hide their faces and carrying signs which urged the public to take a bigger stand against corruption.

“The Oblation Run is really something to attract the attention of the people, but we would like the people to get attracted to the message that we carry,” said Domingo Cobarrubias, alumni member of the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity.

Hundreds of students packed along the corridors, screaming and cheering at the spectacle.
