July 24 marks the first anniversary of China’s creation of the Sansha prefecture to “oversee and administer” 1 million square miles of the South China Sea over which China asserts “indisputable sovereignty.” If allowed to stand, China’s claim will go down as the most brazen maritime territorial grab in history.

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.
