Members of the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) fraternity were at it again.

The fraternity held their annual "Oblation Run" at the University of the Philippines Diliman campus on Friday.

Usually held in December close to the UP Lantern Parade, the run was instead held closer to the anniversary of the Diliman-based chapter of the fraternity.

The annual event began as a protest against censorship during the martial law regime of then President Marcos, when members of the fraternity protested the banning of a local movie, Hubad na Bayani, which was critical of the administration.

Today, the run has become a venue to highlight current issues. This year, they campaigned for freedom of expression and self-determination.
