Ira Panganiban is a seasoned journalist and a very opinionated fella on FB who won’t hesitate to speak up whenever necessary.
A case in point is the post of Ira Panganiban who generously shared his unsolicited advice to student activists from the University of the Philippines who took to the streets bearing placards carrying slogans like “Fight for Just and Lasting Peace” and “Imperyalismo Ibagsak” in protest of the declaration of martial law in Mindanao.
A veteran journalist as he is and a former student activist in his UP days before transferring to La Salle, Panganiban noticed something is not right with the slogans written in the placards of the UP student activists.

What is wrong with this photo?
Kids let me enlighten you a bit!
The imperialism you have in your posters? That was our battle cry when I was in UP. You know who that was for? The Americans! You know who the guy you are crucifying is against? The Americans. Next time please be informed why you are in a protest rally. Don’t be sheep, be leaders.
While I am not so keen about Martial Law, that “fight for just and lasting peace” poster you have? That is what the government claims it is after when they declared Martial Law for 60 days. I suggest you let them do their job until we see there is something wrong. The phrase “innocent until proven guilty” does apply to all, even the government.
I repeat children, please know why you are shouting and stamping in on a protest rally. Please know your cause.
Know why you are there. I do not deprive you of your right to grow up. Just grow up informed.
Again don’t be sheep, be leaders!!!
