Filipinos to Protest Against China Over Disputed Shoals

Posted: May 07, 2012


NEW YORK – Overseas Filipinos will hold protests in front of China’s embassies and consulates worldwide to protest the recent aggressive Chinese encroachments in the disputed body of water that Chinese refer to as the South China Sea and Filipinos call the West Philippine Sea.

Loida Nicolas Lewis, national chair of a Filipino American good governance organization, said Thursday that the noontime protest actions on May 11 are aimed at calling international attention to China’s “bullying tactics” against a smaller and weaker neighbor like the Philippines.

Lewis was referring to the recent standoff between the Philippine Navy and several Chinese vessels at the Panatag Shoal (international name: Scarborough Shoal) 124 nautical miles off the Philippines’ Zambales province and more than 500 miles from the nearest Chinese port of Hainan.

Another FilAm leader, Rodel Rodis announced that a demonstration will be held at the Chinese consulate, on Laguna Street in San Francisco on May 11 at noon.
