Filipino Americans Set Protest Actions in China Consular Offices in US
U.S. PINOYS FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 28, 2011, New York, NY – Filipino Americans are set to picket the consular offices of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in Washington DC, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco at 12 noon on July 8, 2011 to protest the PRC government’s scheduled oil rig drilling activities in the Spratly Islands territory of the Philippines this July. Under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Seas, a nation owns the oil, mineral and other resources within a two hundred mile radius from its base.
The protest actions were called by the US Pinoys for Good Governance (USP4GG), a national organization led by Loida Nicolas Lewis and Rodel Rodis, which includes leading Filipino-American business, political and community leaders focusing on issues impacting the Philippines and the Global Filipino community.
“We call on Global Filipinos and Philippine organizations throughout the world to stand up to the China bully and protest its impending intrusion of the Philippines by demonstrating in front of consular offices of China throughout the world,” Nicolas Lewis added.
China is set to invade Philippine territory/waters to extract the Philippines’ natural resources (oil) this July!
This is a call for our Fil Am kababayans in the US to join us in our rally in front of the China Consulates in NY, SF, LA, Chicago and their DC Embassy on July 8 at 12pm to 1pm.

Next Friday, July 8, 12nn to 1pm at your state’s local time. Rally against China’s intrusion of Philippine waters!
Wear yellow. Come out on your lunch break for the Philippines!
