Acrylic Gouache on 15″ x 20″ Watercolor Paper
“Déjà Vu” depicts how the Diliman Commune correlates with the current challenges that UP is facing. Now that the UP-DND Accord has been terminated, the fight continues to ensure that the vicinity of the campus remains a safe space, to protect academic freedom, and that the long history of police and military violence and student disappearances will never happen again. For our safety and freedom, we must put up a strong barricade.
