PROTESTERS MAY LEAVE AN ENGLISH-CHINESE LETTER PETITION ON THE CONSULATE!

 

CHICAGO (JGL) — Various groups in the United States are organizing protest rallies in the Chinese consulates in various cities on July 12, the third anniversary of the decision of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) of the United Nationals Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) in The Hague, The Netherlands in 2016, when the Philippines won a landmark ruling against China’s massive nine-dash-line claim over the whole Philippine Western Sea or the South China Sea.

Jerry B. Clarito, community grassroots organizer, said some Filipino community members will be massing at MacDonald’s at the corner of Chicago and State St. on Friday, July 12, from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and will proceed to the Consulate General of the Peoples’ Republic of China at nearby 100 West. Erie St.

 

BRING BANNERS

 

Ella Basilio of the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA) will be bringing a Philippine flag. Others are encouraged to bring in their own banners expressing their issues against China.

 

SALUD!

A REGULAR SATURDAY breakfast meeting is being planned by a group of Filipino community members at Seafood City in Chicago, Illinois and another alternative venue that other members may suggest. It will discuss current community issues like the Kapehan at the Manila Hotel hosted by officers of the National Press Club. This was the consensus by members who attended an informal breakfast meeting held last Saturday, June 29, at Seafood City in the north side of Chicago. The meeting also marked the birthday of community organizer Ms. Juanita Salvador Burris (second from right). Attendants also decided to support the upcoming protest rally in front of the Chinese Consulate on Friday, July 12, from noon to 1 p.m. at 100 West Erie St. in the near north side of Chicago. Others in photo from right (counterclockwise) are Mariano “Anong of Pinoy Newsmagazine, Joseph G. Lariosa of PM (philamessenger.com), Sally Richmond, who just recovered from injuries she sustained when her car was carnapped during a home invasion by three men; Naty Panopio, Jerry B. Clarito and Ray Villar. (JGL Photo by Flor Clarito)


According to Clarito’s statement, the focus of the global rally is to protest the continuing incursions of China over the Philippine Exclusive Economic Zone and to demand its responsibility to hold the crew of the Chinese vessel accountable to the ramming of the Filipino fishing boat last June 9 (June 10, Philippine time), and other China-related issues.

The community is outrage about the continuing intrusion of China over the Philippines exclusive economic zone in West Philippine Sea. Among other things, the Philippines is also falling into the so-called "Debt Trap". It is inspiring to see the militancy of our community in giving life to bayanihan and paninindigan when our sovereignty is under attack.

“Please spread the word and come out on July 12. Also, please invite other organizations to participate in this meaningful event. Indeed, our action will contribute to the global movement to protect our country's interest over the West Philippine Sea and other parts of the Philippines.

 


Please be informed that United Nations members have the duty under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) to render assistance to persons in distress at sea.

“”However, on June 9, 2019, a Chinese trawler rammed a Philippine fishing vessel and left the Filipino crew in the water until a Vietnamese vessel took them on board.

Let's not allow this kind of event to happen again. Let's strengthen our solidarity with our fisher folks fighting for their economic rights and security in the open seas.” 

The focus of the global rally is to protest the continuing incursions of China over the Philippine Exclusive Economic Zone and to demand its responsibility to hold the crew of the Chinese vessel accountable to the ramming of the Filipino fishing boat last June 9, and other China-related issues.

Ago Pedalizo, another community organizer in San Francisco, California, said a group is also planning to form a “United Opposition Front … to fight against China-backed tyranny of (President) Duterte.” 

CHINA OUT OF PWS/SCS 

In an advisory to a Chicago group, Mr. Pedalizo said, “Tonight in San Francisco, we will plan for next week’s July 12 global rally and issue a video statement with a banner that says “China Out of West Philippine Sea!”

“There is no organizational affiliation underneath in order to promote co-equal coalition building without dominance from any group. Behind the banner is the Philippine flag alone. Other smaller flags or banners may be allowed at the fringes.

 


“FAHRA and Malaya both agreed on this approach,” Mr. Pedalizo said, referring to the Filipino American Human Rights Association and a Filipino activist group.

“We shall also decide at supporting the July 22 State-Of-The-Nation address protest rally, with the same concept of a united front with additional banners that say, “Stop Human Rights Violations!”

Other parties joining the rally are U.S. Pinoys for Good Governance (USP4GG), Malaya Movement San Francisco and New York; Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN), North California and New York, Global Pinoy Diaspora, Liberal PartY USA and Friends of Akbayan USA.

Mr. Pedalizo has also come with some slogans that can be chanted by rallyists:

 1. Isla at karapatan Wag isuko sa dayuhan

2. China-Duterte Palayasin!

3. West Philippine Sea China Out Now!

4. Benham Rise China Out Now!

5. China Missiles at Spratly Down, Down, Down

6. Philippine Sovereignty Not for sale, not for share

7. Ang tao, Ang Bayan Tuloy ang laban!

8. When sovereign right is under attack, What do you do? Stand up, Fight Back!

9. China layas Ating ang Pinas!

10. Imperyalismong Tsino Ibagsak, Ibagsak, Ibagsak
