Rallies In Manila Over The South China Sea Dispute

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – JULY 12: Anti China protestors mount a protest rally against China’s territorial claims in the Spratlys group of islands in the South China Sea in front of the Chinese Consulate on July 12, 2016 in Makati, Philippines. The International Tribunal of the Permanent Court of Arbitration is expected to come out with a ruling today between the Philippines and China over the dispute in the South China Sea on Tuesday. The case was filed by the Philippines in 2013 since China took control of a reef about 140 miles from the Philippines coast although the People’s Republic maintains it will not be bound by the ruling.
