Los Angeles – Chanting “China Out of the Philippines, Now” and singing “China, China Magnanakaw,” scores of Filipino-Americans rallied and picketed Friday at the People’s Republic of China (PRC) Los Angeles Consulate to join what they call is a global action against China.

The rally was led by organizations such as Bantay Pilipinas-USA, Talakayan sa FACLA, Knights of Rizal-HFT and the Overseas Filipinos for Good Governance (OPGG), a US-wide organization that led the rallies in San Francisco, New York, the Marianas and other places worldwide.

The more than an hour-long demonstration was held in front of the PRC Consulate located at 443 Shatto Place St. in Los Angeles.

Among the demonstrators was California lawyer Atty. Roman Mosqueda, who said that “This rally is in support of the Philippine government and our delegation at The Hague” where a Philippine delegation argued why China’s actions on the islands within the disputed waters in West Philippine Sea constitute violations against Philippines’ Exclusive Economic Zone territorial claim.

According to Mosqueda, “There is ample evidence that the Chinese claim does not hold water and can be described as preposterous.”

Along with Mosqueda, other Fil-Am civic leaders included Andrea Aquino of NAM-USA, Dr. Orly Cagampan of the Knight of Rizal and Rotary Club of HFT, Macky Fortu of RVNC and Knights Commander of the KOR-HFT Arturo Garcia and Talakayan sa FACLA.
