Pre-SONA protest

Members of various sectors and organizations hold a protest in front of Quezon Hall at University of the Philippines in Diliman calling for the "defense" of the West Philippine Sea and the Filipino identity. The protest comes a few days before President Duterte’s State of The Nation Address, which he has said he will use to “educate” his critics angered about his claim that Manila cannot bar Beijing from the West Philippine Sea.
