TAKE ACTION Against Obama’s Visit to Japan, South Korea, the Philippines & Malaysia!
On Friday April 25, 2014
Join BAYAN-USA for an international day of action to protest the U.S. military build-up and simultaneous push for the Trans-Pacific Partnership in the Philippines and throughout the Asia Pacific!
President Obama plans to visit the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, and Malaysia to secure the use of their sovereign land for U.S. military bases and their cooperation with the U.S.-led free trade agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). People’s organizations throughout the Asia Pacific are mobilizing to oppose the U.S.’ rampant militarism in the region and its economic hegemony through the sinister implementation of the TPP, or “NAFTA on steroids.” The expansion of U.S. militarization in the region will lead to increased human rights abuses, violence against women and children, pollution and environmental destruction, while costing US tax-payers millions of dollars. It also aims to squash anti-imperialist people’s liberation movements–including the national democratic revolution of the Philippines, the longest running national liberation struggle in Asia.
Tell Obama: People of the Pacific don’t want your drones, nukes, bases, troops or multi-national corporate criminals! US OUT now!
US Out of the Philippines and all Asia Pacific
Stop the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement
Junk the Visiting Forces Agreement and New Military Access Agreements
End the Aquino regime’s puppetry to US imperialism
Uphold Philippines sovereignty
Build international solidarity against US intervention, militarization and aggression
Send US troops back home! Fight Imperialist intervention in the Philippines and Asia. Fight the imperialist war and plundering!
