Breaking or Broken: “Di Ako Papayag” slacktivism


SLACKTIVISM is a combination of the words slacker and activism. It is considered a pejorative term that describes taking “feel-good” measures, in support of an issue or social cause, that have little or no practical effect other than to make the person doing it feel satisfaction.

Have you watched the “Di Ako Papayag” TV advocacy campaign against Con-Ass? If you want to take part of its online campaign for slacktivists, just follow these simple instructions:

  1. Create a video of yourself or someone else, with a piece of black tape around your mouth.
  2. Take it off and say out loud: “DI AKO PAPAYAG!”
  3. Post the video on
  4. Create as many videos as you can.

As people advance with technology, new practices of showing activism emerge. Have people changed their ways in terms of showing their support or protest against issues of national interest?


The issue of resorting to online protests now known as slacktivism, BREAKING or BROKEN?
