(from Agence France Presse as reported in the Inquirer April 10) Quote “(Palawan representative) Antonio Alvarez dismissed fears that China will take drastic actions against the Philippines should the latter draw a map that will embrace Kalayaan “as part of one contiguous territory.” “If it (China) will take a hostile action against us, you can just imagine the worldwide condemnation it will invite. The Olympics will be boycotted,” he said
Quote “”The protests will be widespread that the Tibetan disturbance will look like a schoolyard fight compared to what we can do,” XXXX
Quote “For one, there are seven million Filipinos worldwide, with a large presence in every country, so for sure thousands of them will be ready with fire extinguishers along the route of the Olympic torch relay, and that’s just one form of action,” he said.” Closed-quote.
