 Just got back from a protest at the US embassy.  The protest was lead by BAYAN Philippines and demanded that the Philippine government scrap the Visiting Forces Agreement with the US which allows for US combat troops to go anywhere on Philippine soil.  They also demanded that the Philippine government look after its own people and reject US imposed neoliberal trade policies and privitization schemes.
