STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES
The members of Occupy Jersey City, jointly and severally, stand in solidarity with the Filipino People against the proposed United States military build-up in The Philippines under the guise of protecting natural resources in the South China Sea. It is the natural right of any nation to administer its internal and external affairs without the intrusion of a foreign power. Additionally, the members of Occupy Jersey City, as a group and individually, support the anti-colonial struggles that have lasted for over a century in The Philippines.
The Filipino People have an inherent right to manage their own affairs without the unwanted intervention and interference of the United States. Finally, Occupy Jersey City, in unison, firmly opposes the use of United States taxpayer monies for the unwarranted funding of the military escalation in the Pacific Rim via this new threat aimed toward The Philippines by the United States military-industrial complex. Occupy Jersey City favors disarmament and thus peace.
NO MORE UNITED STATES ARMS BUILD-UP IN THE PACIFIC RIM!
SOVEREIGNTY & PEACE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES!
