Manila, Philippines – Massive demonstrations took place in the Manila, Nov. 13, as thousands of workers, students, faith-based communities and others are taking to the streets to condemn U.S. President Trump and his lackey, Philippine President Duterte.

According to a statement from the Communist Party of Philippines, “The ASEAN [Association of South East Asian Nations] and East Asia Summit to be held in the Philippines on Nov. 12,13 and 14 will serve as occasion for the imperialist powers to project their military and political power in the Asia-Pacific region and wring further liberalization policies from the Philippines and other backward economies. U.S. imperialist chieftain Donald Trump is set to visit the Philippines, as well as Japan, China, South Korea and Vietnam.”
