MANILA – The Philippines is fast losing its territorial waters to the Chinese, and patriotic Filipinos need to step up to the plate to defend it, as a united, independent nation.
A forum organized by the newly-formed movement, Pilipinong Nagkakaisa para sa Soberanya (P1nas) had begun efforts to stir patriotic fervor, as it discussed China’s incursions into Philippine territory in the West Philippine Sea (South China sea).
“We are not pro-Chinese, we are not pro-American, we are pro-Filipino, and we are ready to stand pat to our territory, assert our national sovereignty, and fight to retain what is ours,” said Bayan Muna partylist Rep. Neri Colmenares during the discussion.
The jampacked forum, held on June 25 at the Pamantasan ng Lunsod ng Maynila (PLM), kicked off P1nas’s public awareness campaign on the country’s dispute with China. It was attended by more than 500 undergraduate and law students, leaders and members of different progressive groups.
