Anakbayan condemns China’s territorial assertion over West Philippine Sea
Progressive youth group Anakbayan condemned China’s territorial assertion and expansion in the West Philippine Sea. China’s recent actions: release of the new map, ongoing construction on disputed areas, and the announcement of border fortification are cited by the youth group as the examples of “Chinese expansionism”.
“China has no right to push the Philippines around in this territorial dispute. Their claims are outrageous,” said Vencer Crisostomo, Anakbayan national chairperson.
China has recently released an official map of China with a ten dash line marking (The marking that shows the territorial claims of China on the West Philippine Sea). The ten dash line marking covers sea territories of Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, and the Philippines.
"China and the CPC are posers. They should stop claiming to be ‘communists.’ They are greedy and abusive capitalists. It is time they change their name,"said Crisostomo.
China’s construction on disputed areas is cited by the youth group as a gross disrespect of the Philippines.
“”China should stop constructing bases on disputed islands, this is essentially colonialism no different from what the US is doing in the country,” said Crisostomo.
Recently, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced the further fortification of Chinese borders, in the midst of territorial conflicts. “Foreign aggressors broke China’s land and sea defense for hundreds of times, plunging the Chinese nation into the abyss of calamity,” said Xi as a justification for border strengthening.
"China ironically imitates the ways of their former foreign aggressors. Their actions are putting livelihood of Asian fishers at risk because of the displacement caused by the territorial dispute,” said Crisostomo.
The youth group meanwhile said that the increasing US presence in the region could be agitating China further and is definitely not helpful in the peaceful resolution of territorial conflicts.
"We should call for a halt to Chinese expansionism and US interventionism in the region. Neither will help bring about a meaningful resolution to the territorial disputes. Worse, the US is using these conflicts to violate national sovereignty and install its unwanted bases," he said.
Anakbayan called for the junking of US-PH Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) and other unequal treaties. ###
