#WeHaveNothingToLoseButOurCAGES     #FalconsUNITE

Hackers defaced the website of Adamson University Monday night to protest what they described as anti-student tuition policies being implemented by the said school. Visitors to were instead redirected to

In a statement posted on the university’s defaced home page, the hackers pointed out that the school administration had implemented an increase of 10 to 15% for this academic year. A quick look at the database of the Commission on Higher Education confirms this fact.

“It is ironic and insulting how the Adamson University takes pride in preaching that education should have a heart but continue to marginalize the students by not allowing them to take their preliminary exam without permits,” the cyber activists noted.

“The administration forgets that education is a right especially for a school that should be providing affordable and quality education for the socially disadvantaged. As school admins place profit as the primary drive of their institutions, we have been pushed into greater desperation to keep up with the rising cost to build our future,” they added.

“A student who won’t be able to pay will not be able to get examinations results and will be marked “zero” on their prelims, midterms and finals which will leave him no choice but to retake the same subjects he/she took last semester,” they further lamented. This statement echoes the situation that led to the suicide of Kristel Tejada, a freshman behavioral science student from University of the Philippines-Manila.

“Left and right, students are dropping out and abandoning their dreams all because of financial constraints. And it doesn’t differ whether in a private or in a state university, profit comes first and education is treated as a privilege for the few,” the group said. The activists also called on their fellow students to not pay their midterm dues and instead wear black on Wednesday, August 14. No official statement has been made on the university’s Facebook page as of posting time.
