UP Day of Remembrance 2022

Noong 21 Setyembre 2022, ginunita ang ika-50 anibersaryo ng pagsasailalim ng Pilipinas sa Batas Militar ng rehimeng Marcos. Ang pagbabalik-tanaw sa madilim na yugto ng ating kasaysayan ay lubhang kinakailangan sa kasalukuyan dahil na rin sa mga banta sa kalayaan, lalo na sa prinsipyo ng academic freedom.
