Social media is a a abuzz over a certain Carl Ieuan Uba who was councilor in the University of the Philippines (UP) Student Council (USC) over the school year 2021 to 2022.
It seems Uba was a respected member of the cadre of communist “activists” that infest UP campuses as evident in this tweet from the organisation League of Filipino Students which is closely associated with the Communist Party of the Philippines.

Allegations of sexual harassment directed against Uba had recently been emerging on social media, many of them authored by former students or group members attesting to having filed criminal complaints against Uba who served in USC under the UP Diliman campus organisation Student Alliance for the Advancement of Democratic Rights in UP (STAND UP). One noted activist, Kelsey Hadjirul who had filed a case tweeted that Uba “was a known sexual predator, facing several cases from different sectors”.
STAND UP, under the banner of which Uba served in the USC “is the premier student leadership formation and the broadest party-alliance of militant organizations in UP Diliman,” according to the Twitter profile of the organisation. As of this writing, no statement on the matter can be seen issued over its social media accounts (including that of its Facebook page).
