MANILA, Philippines — Hundreds of protesters, including some Vietnamese, have gathered to protest China’s claims to much of the territory in the South China Sea.

Waving Philippine flags and blowing horns, the protesters massed Wednesday in front of a building housing the Chinese consulate. The Chinese consulate closed its visa office due to the protest.

The crowd of about 500 was watched by police anti-riot squads.

Recent confrontations involving Chinese surveillance ships and those from the Philippines and Vietnam have ratcheted tensions in disputed offshore areas that straddle busy shipping lanes and are potentially rich in oil and gas.

        really….why does china target GSK, Astra Zeneca, and other foreign multinational companies and accused them of corruption…..China charged them with trump up charges….but their “national champions” (chinese manufacturing) were not targeted…..my motherland (china) is rotten to the core. Corruption is a way of life in my motherland….look at the US$3.5 billion hidden wealth of our dear leader Wen Jiabao…..where did he deposit them? at Swiss banks and US banks.

    Do not buy chinese made products, it is cheap because the quality is cheap.

    • Ulipur

      Tama lang siguro ang precio sa calidad ng binibili….kaya ang daming bumibili. At saka waka namang mabili kundi galing lang sa Tsina.

      • freedom of navigation

        Ever since China bullied the Philippines I have avoided buying Made in China. It is also easy to avoid Made in China when I’m shopping for clothes. My new slippers is Made in Brazil, My new socks are Made in Korea, my new shirts are Made in Indonesia, Made in India, Made in in Honduras. Most of the foods and dairy products I buy are products of USA. It’s easy to avoid clothes from China by going around these stores like Target, Old Navy, Marshall, Ross, Macy’s and other swap market style clothes store.

      • zymygy

        Brother please include IKEA.Most are China made.

      • freedom of navigation

        understand what you read.

      • zymygy

        Ok i just mentioned a store that are selling China made that everybody be aware.If don’t like it thats fine.

  • kanoy

    YAWN,,,,a few hours of b1tching outside an embassy is meaningless they did that hundreds of times in Manila and the US Marine guards smiled as will the Chinese embassy staff as they turn up the volume on their radio

    US protestors marched daily for 10 years to end the Vietnam conflict—-it takes years of protests or why bother?

    • 我恨中国人

      This was worldwide. Wait for the effect Chink. The people of the world saw what we did.

      • Laddy

        the whole world is waiting for the Fili cheese steak effect. LOL

    • Meow Ming

      Why are you concern with China? Maybe because you are really a tsinoy and supporter of Beijing and pretending to be a kanoy.

  • Ulipur

    In the battle for the control of the South China and shoals and islets and everything even anything close to the coasts of China and the Philippines and other countries it seems that China is in a better position to win….First, it is the strongest…It will use its might or whatever it takes to win….China is focused. Philippines, Vitenam and other ASEAN countries are not united. Other claimants in the South China cannot rely on the US. US has not even ratified the UNCLOS….

    Chinese Interest vs Asean Interests vs US Interest…US will not go against China if its interest will be jeopardized…never mind the Asean interest..

    Remember….In another 25 or 30 years, China is projected to have a bigger economy than the US (and even Japan combined, may be).

    • 我恨中国人

      Wow nice work of fiction. Can’t wait to see the real war.

        我讨厌中国共产党 would be a good alias for you.

      you make a good comedian, i can’t stop laughing

    • Crazy_horse101010

      first of all no one can say whats going to happen in 30 years and if you read the news chinas exports are dropping fast because countries are boycotting chinese junk. and where is your seat in the pentagon east wing, west wing because you must have one there to know american policy. america said it wasnt going to fight in ww1 and ww2 and we know what happened there. no one knows what is going to happen until it happens.

    • tonygadoy

      FYI, Prez Obama has signed a federal law on Dec. 31, 2011, that authorizes the Pentagon the right to ‘preemptive nuclear strike’ against MONGOLOID china with a budget of $662 billion in its disposal in times that china will make any drastic action against any territory that the US has vestige interest with like Japan and the Philippines. You don’t even have any idea why MONGOLOID china’s economy now are in contraction? FYI again. NATO allies have restricted imports coming from MONGOLOID china. So what 25 to 30 years you are talking about when the chinese are going back to the caves by that time.

      • Laddy

        Obama will never let you Pigmy’s dictate the use of Nuclear weapons. Obama is pus, and you should keep on Dreaming Pigmy. One Nuke and you will have no tree to climb back on you tail-less monkey

      • tonygadoy

        You’re a pity MONGOLOID -Observer-.A certified autistic. I did not say that we dictate Prez Obama. Your autistic brain cannot see that the Philippines is part of the natural line of defense by the US facing the whole Pacific against MONGOLOID chinese. So by this way you cannot hide your yellow monkey tail inside your azz.

      • Laddy

        Haha you pigmys. America is not stupid to dump more money down a shiiiit hole like your basket case country. your so funny that your FLIP islands is a natural line of defence Blah Blah. How about getting your fat lazy azz out of Hawaii and to the front lines.

      • tonygadoy

        You cannot see it MONGOLOID MAD dog-observer-. The time clock of your imminent doom has just started. The EU,US AUSies, has just junk all your crap products. Your economy is starting for contraction. I’ll just hold my patience since autistic MONGOLOID -observer- is not privy of what are the odds here.

      • Laddy

        let me see.. what does your FLIP island produce??? call centers, sex workers and the export of maids that steal from thier empolyers and then get expariated hmmm good luck with that Pigmy

      • tonygadoy

        MORONIC MONGOLOID -observer- still refuse to see the reality. Everyone else know that the PRC is doomed. Look at your water, air, food, that is homegrown. It’s all poisonous. Look at your exports, corruptions among the elites. Look at how many enemies you’ve made. A brainless MONGOLOID -observer will always look at the other way and not at his yellowish pus like monkey face.

      • Laddy

        Hurry up and invade the PRC, i really dont give a fck. I just hate fcking ranting pigmys and ive been saying this in about 100 post already. So Fcking hurry the fck up and invade the PRC

    In March 2005, exploration for oil & gas took place at West Philippine Sea. This was called the Joint Marine Seismic Undertaking (JMSU).
    An agreement had to be reached first with the Philippine government before any exploration can be conducted. Reaching an agreement with our country before any exploration can be started is a clear proof that the location of the exploration belongs to the Philippines. It’s not a norm for nations to inform other nations if they want to explore for oil & gas on their own land or areas covered by their EEZ.

    • Maj Gen Luo Yuan

      The JMSU was agreed upon between my motherland and the corrupt Arroyo regime. We “wined” and “dined” Arroyo’s party and her family in Beijing….not to mention the “send-off” (pabaon) gifts to them……hence the ZTE-NBN broadband deal tainted with kickbacks……and this territorial dispute.

      • Laddy

        Read Barry Wain that put an end to the JMSU.
