• 5 MINUTE RALLY AT US EMBASSY

    0

    FOR five minutes, some 50 youths were allowed to stage a short rally in front of the United States Embassy in Manila on Tuesday morning, the day when President Barack Obama arrived in the country for the Asia Pacific Economic Leaders’ Summit. The militant youths arrived one by one using the Padre Faura Street. They occupied the corner of the street but were prevented to cross Roxas Boulevard by police augmentation troops from Regions 2 and 4-A. The youths are condemning the imperialist-like rule of America and blamed it and other rich states for the poverty in the country. The marchers tried to break into the police line but to no avail. They dispersed peacefully after a five-minute program. Roxas Boulevard is no-protest zoon and no-walk zone including the service road which were closed to traffic for entire duration of Apec Summit.  Jaime R. Pilapil
