Transcript of College Editors Guild of the Philippines

A Patriotic and Democratic Organization
The Guild has over 750 member publications in more than 500 schools in 68 out of 81 provinces and cities nationwide.
Our Demands
College Editors Guild of the Philippines
Established on July 25, 1931, CEGP is the oldest, broadest and only-existing intercollegiate alliance of tertiary student publications in the Philippines and Asia-Pacific region.
It is patriotic because it ardently struggles against foreign domination and control in politics, economy, culture, military, foreign affairs and other spheres of national life.

It is democratic because it upholds and protects the interest and welfare of the Filipino youth and people.
The National Center for the Advancement of Campus Press Freedom
CEGP is steadfast in protecting and defending the right of every student to seek, receive and impart information through any medium without any interference.
Re-open all closed student publications
Establish publications in schools where there are none
End all forms of campus press freedom repression
The Guild is the primary organization that provides legal support and assistance to student publications which experience campus press freedom violations such as censorship, administrative intervention, withholding of funds, non-collection of student publication fee, libel, and harassment and surveillance, to name a few.
CEGP lobbies for the passage of the Campus Press Freedom Bill in the Congress. The bill seeks to protect campus press freedom, penalize those who violate and scrap Campus Journalism Act of 1991.
Our Objectives
Work for the professionalization and independence of the campus press.
Uphold the highest standards and ethics of journalism.
Uphold and defend campus press freedom and other student democratic rights at all levels.
Raise the social consciousness of campus journalists and the Filipino people in general.
Our Objectives
Support people’s issues and actively participate in their struggle.
Cooperate with organizations and prominent individuals here and abroad with the similar objectives
Support the professional media and their struggle for genuine press freedom.
Campus publications served as alternative sources of news and information not only to the students and academic community. Aside from issues of the students and youth, the campus press publishes stories on the plight of the marginalized sectors.
Mosquito Press
during the Martial Law
Campus publications published articles by Jose Maria Sison, Renato Constantino Sr., Gary Olivar and other critiques on Philippine government and society.
After Martial Law, progressive groups fell into reformism, which included the CEGP.
On July 25, 1991, Cory Aquino signed the RA 7079 or Campus Journalism Act of 1991.
Establish a mass organization for young writers and bloggers outside student publications.
Form an Asia-Pacific alliance of student publications. CEGP targeted to hold its first convention on 2016.
