Filipinos and Filipino-Chinese will stage peaceful rallies throughout Metro Manila tomorrow, Friday. A certain Jaime Gan organized the protest rally which aims to take China to task for its militancy in the Spratlys island. China continues to issue militant statements against the Philippines.
Militant groups are one in demanding China to ease itself out of the issue, and let the international community resolve the contentious issue. The Philippines, has, time and again, been insistent on bringing the issue before the UNCLOS. China refuses, saying that there is no dispute because the islands belong to China eversince.
Tensions have escalated since China sent its gunboats in the Scarborough shoal. China likewise, asked its travel agencies to cease from sending tourists to the Philippines. This is a direct attack on the Philippines.
