BAYAN: Oppose the US-Japan-Philippine naval exercises

“The Philippines must reject US intervention and rising Japan militarism. Neither are out to serve our national interest. The naval exercises themselves do very little to develop our own capability for external defence. We’ve had so many with the United States yet our armed forces remain undeveloped. The avowed goal of interoperability is a sham considering the backwardness of our own Navy when compared to the US and Japan. All things considered, we are merely being used by bigpowers for their own geopolitical interest.” – Bagong Alyansang Makabayan
