Military Review

Filipinos who came out to protest before Trump's visit were dispersed with water cannons

24
On Sunday, several hundred demonstrators protesting against the arrival of the United States President Donald Trump in the Philippines tried to break through to the American embassy in Manila, but were stopped by water cannons, reports TASS message of the newspaper Manila Times.




The demonstrators demanded "not to let Trump" into the country, opposing the military cooperation of the Philippines and the United States.

After the activists tried to break through the police cordon, law enforcement officers scattered the crowd, using the fire engine hoses.

“The incident took place just a few hours before the arrival of the American President in Manila to participate in the events of the Summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN),” the report says.

Street protests against the background of the visit of the American leader have been held in Manila since Friday.

Several hundred activists (the organizers of the rally report several thousand people) are demanding "to ban Trump from entering," protesting against "imperialist aggression and many years of US domination in the Philippines."

Demonstrators chanted "No to Trump!" No United States. They burned a cloth styled as an American flag, as well as several portraits of Trump.

Recall, November 12-14 Trump will be in the Philippines, where he will take part in the ASEAN-US summit and the East Asian Summit.

          Interestingly, in Rostov, he looked after himself a house? Okay, let's wait for the results, or maybe at the end of the negotiations Rodrigo will call Trump (as Obama used to be) the "son of a woman with low social responsibility"

              I would call it differently, but without a mat it doesn’t work ...
              When you are friends with one, then you shake his hand! And when between the `` Perelyublinymi '', then later you have to kiss something. And this is not a hand at all!

      Unauthorized street protests do not need any power. And yet, yes, diplomatic facilities are inviolable, not tea in Ukraine. The Maidan did not ride in the Philippines, because Duterte is not Yanukovych. I am not used to pickling.

        The fact of the matter is that we have no time, We work! And they take to the streets - Loafers, as a rule - of a marginal mentality ... Therefore, pogroms take place! Instead of a peaceful manifesto ...

    The more people of different countries realize that the United States is an “adversary of the world” and one of the creators of the world “terrorist international” the better.

    Dutherte drove a little .. That weapon for him from Russia, then from the mattress, who will win the race for a brighter future? Pounding the drug is a nice thing, but to disperse the people who support you, you need to think about it, if there is anything. .And by the way, I don’t care, here the important problems themselves have enough.

    Filipinos are quick-tempered people. What they will not say to a fool. Therefore, one should look at their statements adjusted for their mentality.
