Anti Planking Law 2011

"What's this? In commemoration of the anniversary of the Martial Law?" asked by Bayan Muna Party List Rep. Teddy Casino after the Anti Planking Bill of Quezon Rep. Winston Castelo.

"This is like the Martial Law before of the late Pres. Marcos that prohibits Voltes V and Daimos on national television." 
Planking is Daimos. Planking is a form of freedom of expression. That is guaranteed under the Constitution. You cannot be against oil price hikes but against protest forms that call for a stop to the hikes. Rep. Casino added.

However, the transport strike was outnumbered. And because of this, people turned their strike into a "lie in protest" or shortly said "planking".

"We cannot be inconsistent in our proposal and actions. We will push the Oil Deregulation Law."

Here's the Anti Planking Law of Rep. Castelo:

SECTION 1. This Act shall be known as the “Anti-Planking Act of 2011”.

SEC. 2. A universal Code of Student Conduct is hereby prescribed where planking as a form of redress of grievance be strictly prohibited and appropriate sanctions be applied for violations thereof.

SEC. 3. Under this Act, planking is when a student or group of students lies face down in unusual locations especially in streets or other public places, keeping the hands along the body and the feet outstretched and especially where such act is meant as a form of redress of grievance against government.

SEC. 4 Every bonafide student from any school, college or university shall conduct himself with high degree of discipline and propriety.

SEC. 5. The Department of Education in the case of elementary and high school students and the Commission on Higher Education in the case of college students shall draft a universal Code of Student Conduct to carry out the provisions of this Act.

Further, DepEd and CHED, respectively shall issue appropriate rules and regulations to effectively carry out intent and purpose of this Act.

SEC. 6. This Act shall take effect ninety (90) days after its publication in the Official Gazette and in at least three (3) newspapers of general circulation.
