Manny Villar recalls militant youth
Along with helping his mom sell shrimps and fish, Manny Villar also recalled joining progressive student movements during the First Quarter Storm during his University of the Philippines (UP) business college days.
“I remember joining the Kabataang Makabayan (KM) and participating in many demonstrations that were held almost every week. We would board buses and jeepneys from Diliman in Quezon City to Agrifina Circle in Manila and we would march to Malacañang,” Villar reminisced in his invitation for the UP College of Business Administration (UPCBA) Centennial year gala dinner.
Villar is the president of the UPCBA Alumni Association and will be hosting the gala dinner with his wife, Senator Cyntia Villar, on December 4 at the SMX Convention Center. #
