ANGELES CITY- The country’s biggest alliance of fisherfolk has written the Chinese government a “humble appeal” to resort to “bilateral and inter-nation dialogues with other claimants” of areas in the West Philippine Sea “rather than engage in hardcore assertion of some that needs to be carefully studied.”
The alliance warned that the territorial conflict among the claimant-nations could be exploited by the US government to promote its interests in the area. “We the leaders and representatives of Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya), a national federation of small fisherfolk in the Philippines,
submit this humble appeal to the Chinese government to recall the new fishing rule that demands foreign fishing vessels to seek permit before entering the disputed waters.”
