Founder and Global Chairperson, NYMWPS
July 13, 2016


The position statement says:

WE, the National Youth Movement For the West Philippine Sea, uphold the territorial integrity of the Republic of the Philippines, commend the United Nations Permanent Court of Arbitration for its favorable decision to the Philippines’ claims on its West Philippine Sea against China. Wherefore, we, the National Youth Movement for the West Philippine Sea , do hereby urge China to abide in the decision of the United National Arbitral Tribunal ( UNAT).

Wherefore, WE, the National Youth Movement for the West Philippine Sea, urge President Rodrigo Duterte to honor the decision of the UNAT and defend and develop our country’s interests in the West Philippines Sea - Kalayaan Islands Group and Scarborough Shoal, for national progress and integrity , and especially for the future of the Philippines and the welfare of the Filipino people and the future generations.

Wherefore, WE also urge the Duterte administration to continue the multilateral strategy to ensure that adequate pressure is brought on China to constrain it from taking more aggressive and irresponsible actions in the future which will not only be to the detriment of the Philippines but to international peace and stability.

Lastly, WE beseech the Duterte administration to mobilize the national will to unite the Filipino people together with the government to face China’s imperialistic ambitions so that a more effective effort may be made to establish a strong and powerful response to future Chinese acts of aggression.

    I would like to share a prophetic message from DENG XIAO PING the man who made modern China for the Chinese people and the world. If one day China should change her color and turn into a superpower if she too should play the tyrant in the world and everywhere subject others to her bullying aggression and exploitation the people of the world should identify her as social imperialism expose it oppose it and work together with the Chinese people to overthrow it.
