NEW YORK CITY—“One hundred seventeen years later, China is invading the Philippines by creating artificial islands surrounding the Philippines. China is saying they own all of [the] South China Sea, that they own all of West Philippine Sea. Mga ulol [They are crazy]!”

These were the words of business tycoon Loida Nicolas-Lewis, chair of the U.S. Pinoys for Good Governance (USP4GG), during a protest rally organized by the group June 12 in front of the Apple flagship store in Manhattan.

Dozens of protesters, mostly community leaders, joined Lewis in the activity as their way of commemorating Philippine Independence Day in the United States. USP4GG has been calling out China for three years now over the territorial dispute in the South China Sea.

The most meaningful way to celebrate Philippine Independence Day on June 12 is by boycotting “Made in China” products until China abandons its illegal invasion, occupation and militarization of the Philippine territories in the West Philippine Sea.

This was the message of Loida Nicolas-Lewis, national chair of the US Pinoys for Good Governance (USPGG), which is calling for June 12 anti-China protest actions by Filipinos and their allies all over the United States and all over the world. In the U.S., the Independence Day protest activities will target Apple and Wal-Mart stores which primarily sell products manufactured in China.

“While we cannot individually fight China militarily, we can do so economically by boycotting Made in China products. Since the largest distributors of China products in the U.S. are Wal-Mart and Apple, that is why we are calling for a boycott of those stores,” Ms. Nicolas-Lewis explained.

Above the South China Sea (CNN) – The Chinese navy issued warnings eight times as a U.S. surveillance plane on Wednesday swooped over islands that Beijing is using to extend its zone of influence.

The series of man-made islands and the massive Chinese military build-up on them have alarmed the Pentagon, which is carrying out the surveillance flights in order to make clear the U.S. does not recognize China’s territorial claims. The militarized islands have also alarmed America’s regional allies.
