Lyceum, Batangas

I spoke to a group of graduate students, college students, and some faculty at the Lyceum of Batangas today. Also present were COMELEC Election Officers and at least one representative from the Association of Barangay Chairmen (ABC).

The topic was electoral reform. I won’t bore you with what i said, but I will say that i enjoyed the experience immensely. The students, alot of them SK voters, were attentive and incisive with their questions. Most of all, they were very participative – something you don’t normally see.

As you can tell, especially from the last pic, I’m a lousy shot.

I certainly hope I can return at some point in the future. And hopefully, all those SK youth that I met will have had the chance to vote. Especially Aron(?) and the third girl from the right in the third pic; both girls seemed particularly keen on exercising their right of suffrage.
