Students running naked in the university

The attached YouTube video shows university students running around the campus wearing only face masks and their skin.
Hold your breath girls, you get to see this annual event in most of the campuses of the University of the Philippines (UP) nationwide.
The so-called "Oblation Run" is a yearly tradition of the members of a leading UP fraternity that began in 1977 during the martial law era.
Members of the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) run around the campus naked (or a concept known as streaking) to show their sentiments about the current economic and political situation.
Filipino students are aware that UP students are more expressive or "radical in their opinion," no wonder the Oblation Run is a welcome idea.
According to APO auxiliary chancellor, in contrast to popular belief, those who run are full-pledged fraternity members who have volunteered and are allowed to run.
Therefore, it is not true that the run is part of the fraternity's neophyte initiation activities.
Watch the short clip here. It's interesting to note that onlookers cover their mouths more than their eyes.
