Protests at the US Embassy in the Phillipines

January 21, 2006

The League of Filipino Students (LFS) have staged protests at the US Embassy:

Indymedia reports: “Public uproar and the resulting joint action by Members of Congress were spurred by the refusal of the US to turn over custody over four US Marines accused of raping a 21-year old Filipina at the former Subic Naval Base in Nov. 2005. Rape is a heinous, non-bailable offense under Philippine law.”
