The men took part in the annual run to call for transparency in their Government’s anti-corruption policies
Around 90 students protested against the Government by running through their university campus naked.
The men took part in the annual run to call for transparency in their Government’s anti-corruption policies.
Organised by the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity in the Philippines, the men were a mixture of current students and the alumni who came back to the college for the event.
Some wore masks, to protect their identity, while others were less bashful as they streaked along the campus hallways.
Ed Lucero, an alumni organiser of the alpha Phi Omega Fraternity at the University of the Philippines Manila explained their aims.
He said: “Our theme is ‘Unveiling the road’ because the government needs to be naked, to be transparent with their work,” he said.
“It means we should strive very hard to strip them bare, not a fake road where only a few can benefit.”
The naked men gave out roses to onlookers and carried placards calling for support for their cause.
Onlooker Jen Pauline Cruz said: “The way they do it is very untraditional, very extravagant.”
The alumni said the tradition started in the late 1970s, when members of the fraternity ran naked on the campus grounds to protest against former President Ferdinand Marcos’ censorship of a film criticizing his administration.
