Filipino's Planking for a Cause

Protest has a new name, PLANKING. Although planking, which is lying face down on mostly unusual place, is popular in other countries, in the Philippines, Pinoys are using planking as a new way of protest. Just like this week, in a protest to the budget cut of state colleges and universities, students joined a mass planking which led to halt usual activities and traffic, another is the protest on the oil increase. 

Since planking has found its way in the protests, the lawmakers have proposed a law against it. Will it be pass as a law? I doubt it. Planking is a form of expression and if this will be banned, then the right to express of the citizens is suppressed. I think what the authorities need to do is to think of the way on how to deal with people who protest through planking. How about designating areas where they can plank or asking these people to get a protest permit before they can plank.

I am not for planking since it distracts the normal flow of activities, but that's the purpose of any protests, right? However, I am for the right for expression.
