Mass Planking in UP Diliman

A mass planking will be conducted by students from different universities in Metro Manila to show opposition against budget cuts and fee increases. This planking activity will be held in front of the AS (Palma Hall) Steps in UP Diliman at around 11:30 AM.

"Plank, then stand up for your right to education."

Many people will surely be watching this, for its style as a peaceful form of protest. For those who do not know what a plank is, in physical health, it is an abdominal exercise which can strengthen the abs and stabilize the spine.

A new urban definition for plank is to lie face down in a strange or unusual place. To plank you must lay horizontally straighten your body and point your fingers and toes down (towards your feet), then you must name your "plank" and post a picture of the creator (of the plank) performing the pose on Facebook. The picture below is one hilarious example of a plank.
