Anti-US protest held in Philippines

submit to reddit

Protesters chant slogans during a protest march to the US Embassy in Manila on Tuesday Nov. 15, 2011.

One hundred Filipino protesters have rallied in the capital, Manila, to show their objection to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit to the Philippines.

Protesters began their rally in Plaza Salamanca on Tuesday.

Clinton arrived in Manila to mark the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Philippines-US Mutual Defense Treaty.

The US recently provided the Philippines with a destroyer and Clinton will discuss offering a second one.

Last week, Clinton said that the US was “updating” relationships with its five treaty-bound regional allies — Australia, Japan, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand.

Activists said they are against the visit because it sets the stage for a greater US presence in the region. They have called on Washington to stop interfering in regional affairs.

Clinton is scheduled to meet with President Benigno Aquino during her visit.

    what the hell is their problem? It’s bad enough with all the corruption happening with the past government. Stealing money from the people. You know who they are and they voted them in. The US is the only country who saved the Filipinos from the Japanese. It’s really sad to see how people from the Philippines put so much hate towards the US when they can’t seem to accept their own mistakes.

    “One hundred Filipino protesters”… I hardly see how a hundred protestors can define the sentiments of a whole nation with a population well over 100 Million. Let’s do the math here SKY and liveaction1… 100 divided by 100,000,000 equals to… not even a blip in the radar!!! Stop letting the media dictate or direct your thoughts.

    You are wrong. That massmurderer, hypocrit, marxist scum dyke Hillary-Billary-Rotten-Klingtong deserves NO respect and hip-hip-hooray!
    The US should haven’t been involved in any Asian matters, first of all bc they dropped the A-bomb on Japan, on one of the most decent countries on Earth. Instead, they should nuke the sovietgulagunion, and/or China for being communist. The jewSA breed the communist virus! Thanks for the Filippino people for being smart!
