Take back honorary degree of Aquino, says UP lawyer

Take back honorary degree of Aquino, says UP lawyer
With the breaking of the news that President Rodrigo Duterte is offered an honorary degree by the University of the Philippines, UP law graduate Atty Trixie Cruz-Angeles pushed for the revocation of the same honorary degree given to former President Benigno Aquino III.

Cruz-Angeles said that she had two degrees from the University and that the reason behind her appeal was Aquino's involvement with the catastrophic death rate during typhoon Yolanda caused by his negligence and incompetence.



She also stated that Aquino ordered  the senseless deaths of 44 Special Armed Forces men which he watched "live".

Cruz-Angeles added that Aquino mishandled the Al Barka massacre of Armed Forces of the Philippines troops.

She said he also was behind the criminal response to starving farmers in Kidapawan and those that sought justice in Hacienda Luisita.

All of which she said, showed a lack of respect for human life and dignity from his part.

"Revoke Aquino's honoris causa degree. Relegate him to the dustbin of history and strip him of this undeserved recognition," the  lawyer said.



Read below full post of Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles:

I am Trixie Angeles, I am an alumnus with two degrees from the University of the Philippines. I am also currently an MA student. I am for the revocation of the honorary degree conferred on Benigno Simeon Aquino. The same person directly responsible for the catastrophic death rate AFTER Typhoon Yolanda due to sheer negligence and incompetence, the senseless deaths of the SAF 44 which he watched LIVE, as well as the mishandling of the Al Barka massacre of AFP troops. 

The revocation is also in recognition of the criminal response to starving farmers in Kidapawan and those that sought justice in Hacienda Luisita. All of which show a lack of respect for human life and dignity.

Revoke Aquino's honoris causa degree. Relegate him to the dustbin of history and strip him of this undeserved recognition.
