Manila, Philippines - Protesters, who consider the Philippines' 110 years of independence from the U.S. to be a sham, marked the anniversary of the occasion by attempting to rush the U.S. embassy yesterday. Demonstrators, most of them students, sprayed red paint on a large portrait of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo after they were rebuffed from their original target by riot police.
