FILAMS SUPPORTS PROTESTS /BOYCOTT OF CHINESE GOODS FOR CHINA’S INCURSIONS ON WEST PH SEAS

Los Angeles—Boycott Chinese Goods, Protests Chinese Bullying in the West Philippine Seas!

This was the united stand of Southern California FilAm leaders at TALAKAYAN sa FACLA last Thursday, May 22, 2015.

They reiterated their stand to join the protest against China at the Chinese Consulate in LA on July 24,2015 and the boycott of Chinse goods being called by the Filipinos for Good Governance based in San Francisco.

Boycott Chinese Goods

Dr. Orly Cagampan said,”I admired Indonesia’s President Widodo because he is a strong leader. He ordered the illegal fishing vessles from 11 countries like China blown up at the Indonesian territorial waters.

Unlike the Philippine leaders who only talked and did no action against Chinese incursions in the West Philippine Seas.”

Larry Pelayo also said, ”The Philippines is only relying on diplomatic solutions and even with the support from the United States cannot do anything with the Chinese constructions in the islands in the Spratley. Their planes were even shoed away by the Chinese in the latest events.”

Dr. Marc Caratao said,”the boycott is largely symbolic. But we have to do it to show our displeasure and protests to Chinese bullying in our islands and our seas.”

DACA/DAPA Immigration Reform Stalled.

BALITANG America(BA) correspondent Steve Angeles, a guest of TALAKAYAN, gave the audience a head’s up on the immigration stand-off on the DACA/DAPA hold ordered by the Texas Court.

Angeles said, “ We are expecting a decision within days. If the decision will not be in favor for the DACA/DAPA implementation that should have taken place yesterday, then the DAPA/DACA Reform formally dead.”

The TALAKAYAN FilAm leaders also discussed the contenders and possible winner on the US and Philippine Presidential elections.

BA’s Steve Angeles added, ” at present there are at least 16 candidates on the first debate for the GOP. On the other hand the Democrats have only Clinton. But is too early to say who will win. The primaries are not yet over.”

Dr.Cagampan exclaimed, “No, as a registered Republican, One Clinton is enough” Dr.Caratao on the other hand said,” As a Democrat I say, Clinton candidacy and win is good for America.”

JFAV Leader Al P.Garcia noticed,”Both the GOP and the Presidential candidates for Philippines are both crowded. Erap Estrada,Marcos Jr, Cayetano,Trillanes, Escudero, Lacson, Duterte, Roxas, Poe, Binay have declared their intent to run for President on May 2016 elections,’

Dr Cagampan said” I will support Senator Poe if she runs as an independent candidate for President.”

Meanwhile. Al Garcia said, “ We will support Roxas-Poe or Poe-Roxas ticket if they run for 2016. It’s the sure winning ticket.”
