Great job lawmaker (being sarcastic)
A bill was filed at the House of Representatives on Tuesday against planking —or the act of lying face down in unusual locations — during street protests.
Quezon City Rep. Winston Castelo, who filed the measure, said planking during street rallies became an “important concern" after some youth protesters lay face down along España Boulevard in Manila to support the transport strike on Monday.
In a statement, the lawmaker said the government should come up with a code of student conduct for “militant or radical student leaders engaged in street protests or demonstration."
The code of conduct should be drafted and implemented by the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education, he added.
Castelo’s bill will have to undergo committee and plenary discussions and approvals at the lower chamber, as well as the Senate, before it can be enacted into law.
