CHINA DRIVES PINOYS AWAY FROM ITS “EEZ” IN CHICAGO!
GET OUT OF HERE!
ABOUT 15 MINUTES into the rally program after Chicago Pinoy newsmagazine publisher-editor Mariano “Anong” Santos spoke at the rally on behalf of the Knights of Rizal, a Chicago Police officer interrupted the program and admonished the surprised rally leader, Mr. Jerry B. Clarito, not to hold the rally by the sidewalk abutting the China Consulate and to resume it across the West Erie street in Chicago, Illinois on Friday noon, July 12. (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)
UNFURLING PHILIPPINE FLAG:
MR. EDMUND NABUA of MALAYA, a US movement for democracy in the Philippines and against tyranny and dictatorship, unfurls the Philippine flag in front of the China Consulate before his group was driven away from the sidewalk abutting the China Consulate at the corner of 100 West Erie and Clark streets in the heart of Chicago, Illinois on Friday noon, July 12. This is the first time in the last seven years that Fil Am rallyists had come closest to the China Consulate. (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)
PRAYING FOR ENLIGHTENMENT:
BISHOP ELI PASCUA of Chicago, Illinois’ Philippine Independent Church opened the rally just beside the door of the China Consulate (note the Consulate panel at right) on July 12 at noon with a prayer, “Today Oh Lord, we ask for your grace and accompaniment as we gather in this area to call the attention of peoples, our people and people of China as to to the important consideration of life of nations and people on decision that should have been upheld until now. The Philippine Western Sea also known as South China Sea belongs to Philippines but China continues to assert its claim and doing its operation. We pray Oh Lord for your important and much needed intercession, enlighten governments and peoples of China and the Philippines concerning this matter. Little group as we are Oh Lord but we take the voices of the solid Filipino nation, defending its rights and sovereignty, and fighting for its patrimony over the West Philippines Sea.” (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G.

WITH CHINA CONSULAR STAFF:
EVEN AFTER Filipino American rallyists cleared the sidewalk beside the China Consulate at the corner of 100 West Erie and Clark streets in the heart of Chicago, Illinois, a staff of the China Consulate (extreme right) was seen from across the street talking animatedly with the Chicago Police who evicted the rallyists “occupying” the sidewalk beside the China Consulate last Friday noon, July 12.

THE VOICE OF Edmund Nabua (right) of MALAYA, a US movement for democracy in the Philippines and against tyranny and dictatorship, must have been so loud (see top photo) that it disturbed the conversation between the Chicago Police and the China Consular staff across the street that the Chicago Police told rally leader Jerry B. Clarito to “tone down” the megaphone and have the megaphone turned around as shown in bottom photo last Friday noon, July 12. (JGL Photos by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)
FOREIGN INVADERS FOR 15 MINUTES:
JERRY B. CLARITO (right), who represents the Filipino American Human Rights Alliance of Illinois (FAHRA) in Chicago, told his followers that the couple of setbacks his group got from the China Consulate should bolster their pride and are badges of honor. Mr. Clarito said, “We were able to “invade” them for 15 minutes close to the China Consulate as close as possible. But because we are peace-loving people, we have to leave.” (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G.

“ATIN ANG PINAS! CHINA, LAYAS”:
ROY VILLA of U.S. Pinoys for Good Governance (USP4GG) reads the statement of USP4GG, saying, “Atin ang ‘Pinas! China Layas!” (The Philippines is ours! China get out!). This has been the rallying cry of the US Pinoys for Good Governance (USPGG) since 2010, as they were joined by fellow Filipinos all over the world to protest the illegal activities and unjust policies of Beijing in the West Philippine Sea. Their worldwide protests played a part in prompting the Philippine government to file an arbitration case against China in 2013, which led to a historic victory for the Philippines on July 12, 2016.” Looking on at right is rally leader, Mr. Jerry B. Clarito of Filipino American Human Rights Alliance of Illinois in Chicago, and Ms. Ella Basillo of National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA). (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)
“I LOVE IT”:
A LADY PASSER-BY (right) responded to Mr. Joseph (Joe) Balmadrid’s quote of a Chinese proverb, “A long journey starts with the first step. This is one of the first steps hanggang mapalayas natin ang (until we are able to drive away) China,” saying, “I love it.” To Mr. Balmadrid’s right are Mariano “Anong” Santos of Chicago Pinoy newsmagazine and Ruben Salazar of Philippine American Cultural Foundation and Piyesta Pinoy. The rally was held in Chicago last Friday noon, July 12. (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)
GOD BLESS THE WORLD!
RAY VILLAR greets his son, Atty. Don Villar, a Chicago, Illinois area labor leader and former staff of WLS-ABC TV Channel in Chicago, who provided moral support for the cause that his father is advocating for but declined to make a statement last Friday noon, July 12, in front of the China Consulate in Chicago. To Don’s right is Ms. Flor Clarito, wife of Mr. Jerry B. Clarito. (JGL Photo by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)
JOSEPH G. LARIOSA of PM (philamessenger.com) advocated for the U.S. Senate to amend the 1951 U.S.-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty to include Philippine Western Sea or South China Sea as part of the “Pacific Area” that will trigger the United States to help the Philippines in case there is an attack in the PWS’ exclusive economic zone (ECC) by a foreign power as a deterrent to maintain peace in the area. The PWS is also an important waterway through which trillions of dollars in trade pass each year. Mr. Lariosa pointed out that it is ridiculous for Philippine Foreign Affairs Sec. Teddy Locsin to assign fault on the 22 fishermen who were sleeping when their boat sunk after being struck by Chinese vessels last June. Instead of rescuing the 22 Filipino fishermen in what China calls Liyue Tan or what the Philippines calls “Recto Bank or Recto Reef” in the Spratly Islands which is within the 200 nautical miles of the Philippines’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), the Chinese vessels pulled away after feeling being threatened. How can the drowning Filipino fishermen threaten someone when they were drowning? Under both the “castle” and the “last clear chance” doctrines, the Filipino fishermen could not be held liable for the allision. (JGL Photo)
CHINA OUT OF PWS:
THIS HARDY GROUP of Filipino Americans and supporters have sent a powerful message to China to get out of the Philippine Western Sea or South China Sea as their banner is visible from across the W. Erie Street on the third anniversary of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, The Netherlands, on Friday, July 12, when PCA ruled that China’s massive nine-dash-line claim in PWS/SCS had no merit.

CHICAGO (JGL) — Taking advantage of a long Easter weekend which is also a bank holiday, a hacker contrived a plan to obtain a PHP 20,000 (US$377) loan from a niece of my wife in Metro Manila on Easter Sunday.
This was the third time that my Facebook account was hacked.
The m.o. (modus operandi) of the hacker pretending as this reporter to my niece goes this way:
Hacker: “(I’m going to make) payment sa (to my) broker ko. But can’t do anything here (in the
U.S.) right now. Everything is closed na kasi dito. (here)
“Ok lng ba na ikaw muna ang magbabayad sa broker ko. (Is it fine with you if you can
in the meantime pay my broker?). Then i will pay u back tomorrow agad (at once)
with interest (without mentioning the rate).
My niece: Saan po babayaran tsaka magkano po? (Where is it going to be paid and how
Hacker: U can send my payment thru western union or Cebuana.
I need only 20k
My niece: Ano pong account details?
Hacker: Don’t worry ill pay u back bukas (tomorrow) ng umaga (morning) with interest.
Bigay ko sayo details ng broker ko (I’ll give you details of my broker)
XX Bagong Tubig St., Tagaytay City
The vulnerability of a Facebook account reared its ugly head again.
A hacker of my Facebook account has harvested the contact information from the wall of my Facebook account this Easter Sunday and reached out to my relative in Cavite City, asking for a loan of PHP 20,000 (US$377.00).
The hacker obtained the phone numbers and email addresses on the FB account of my FB friends associated with my FB friends' accounts.
I told my relative to ask for the contact information of the hacker, who turned out to be residing in Tagaytay City in the Philippines.
Please see the redacted private messages attached that I asked my relative to forward to the nearest police station, which can deal with the hacker.
So, if anybody from my FB friends will get private messages purportedly from me asking for a phone number, email address, loan, etc., it’s not from me. But you may talk to the hacker on video camera so you can identify the hacker and provide the information to the nearest police in your area.
The next course of action for those contacted by the hacker is to replace the phone number and the email address associated with their FB accounts so the hacker cannot use your FB account anymore.
You may also change the password of your FB account and your email account with a two-factor authentication so the hacker will not be able to access your account anymore.
Although some of my FB friends told me that they were able to give away their phone numbers and email addresses, the first thing that you do is to post in your Timelines that if someone contacts them, it's not you but the hacker. They should warn their FB friends not to provide any personal information to the hacker.
I hope nobody else was able to give away any more of their personal information and most of all anything of value, so nothing will be spoiling their Easter Sunday celebration.
If you happen to have PM (private message) exchanges with the hacker, please don't hesitate to forward them to the police and to myself if you want me to post them online.
