Filipino fisherfolks, from the towns of Subic and Masinloc in Zambales, who used to fish near the marine-resource rich fishing grounds of Scarborough Shoal (known locally as “Bajo de Masinloc” and also as “Panatag Shoal”) will file an urgent appeal to the UN in relation to the massive and gross human rights violations committed against them by the state agents of the People’s Republic of China. Members of the Chinese coast guard have repeatedly turned away Filipino fishermen from fishing near the disputed shoal and this has led to heavy economic losses for the fishermen.
 
The petition filing will be preceded by a forum on June 24, 2015, Wednesday, from 9:00 am to 12 noon, at Pista Sa Barrio Restaurant, Building 141 Waterfront Road, Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Olongapo.

    BOYCOTT CHINESE PRODUCTS! The only way to FIGHT BACK! Don’t waste FIL soldiers’ lives. If 100 million Filipnos will not buy a 1 peso Chinese product, that means 100 million pesos loss per month in the Chinese economy! Convince JAPAN, TAIWAN, VIETNAM, MALAYSIA, BRUNIE to join!
