New York - The NY Estrada RESIGN! Movement continued to brave the cold weather in its fourth Saturday outside the Philippine Consulate. The early December protest is was a part of a worldwide movement of the Philipino people and their supporters to remove the corrupt, U.S.-backed President Estrada.

"It's important that we don't solely rely on the impeachment process," said Robert Roy, coordinator of the NY Estrada RESIGN! Movement, about the process that begins this week in the Philippine Senate.

Amanda Vender of the Network in Solidarity with the People of the Philippines said of her experience at the picket, "Some passers-by asked why we should be concerned about what's going on in the Philippines. I told them that the U.S. has a long history of involvement in the Philippines. Our tax dollars have supported this corrupt and abusive regime in the Philippines and we have the duty to stand and support Filipinos who are struggling to bring justice to the Filipino people."
