Group formed to stop hazing

The “Solidarity Against Hazing and Violence in Campus” (SAHVIC), a multi-sectoral group opposed to hazing and other forms of campus violence was organized last Oct. 5, at the Manila Hotel to plan concrete steps to prevent deaths and injuries due to hazing.

Former Senator Joey Lina, who was the principal author and sponsor of R.A. 8049 otherwise known as the Anti-Hazing Law, served as the convenor of the meeting, together with Cecille Guidote-Alvarez, executive director of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, and well-respected columnist Belinda Cunanan. The multi-sectoral group elected Lina as chairman of SAHVIC.

Sectors represented during the meeting were students, academe, school administration, public safety training institutions, media, and national as well as local governments.
