Filipinos, Vietnamese, Laotians Rally Against China's Actions

Posted: Aug 27, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. —  Filipino, Vietnamese and Lao community leaders held a “Prayer Rally for Peace in the Southeast Asian Sea” in front of the Martin L. King Memorial (MLK) last August 21 to protest China's actions against Asian neighbors over disputed islands.

Dressed in yellow, the protesters called for a nationwide campaign to persuade American consumers to boycott “Made in China” products. The Filipino, Vietnamese and Lao leaders plan to protest at future visits of Chinese government officials in Washington until the country complies with international laws that protect territorial sovereignty of the Philippines and Vietnam over their seas. The group also urged
the Chinese government to uphold human rights of their citizens.
