- embodiment of the spirit of freedom and defiance,
a harmless prank-cum-publicity stunt turned protest statement. It is also a tribute to manhood, as this poem, The Ritual Dance
of the Brave
Oblation run is a yearly APO activity
held every December 16, wherein showcases APO fraternity members roaming running nude and naked in University of the Philippines
This activity was started in the
year 1977 ( The First Ever APO Oblation Run ). When an APO member first ran naked in the A.S. lobby to promote a play the
fraternity was sponsoring called "Hubad na Bayani," or "Naked Heroes", Rolly Abad the said member was killed in a rumble few
months later. In comemoration with this, the run was held yearly with noble themes every year... It was said that Oblation
run was just for fun or just an expression of insanity but in a closer look inside it you'll able to learn that it's not just
an ordinary run, but its an expression of protest againts the system.
The ceremory starts with the assembling
at the APO tambayan, where the runners will give them the traditional fraternity salute, in this process also do's and don't's
were instructed to the runners... and presto... to the run.
