Manila, Philippines - Hundreds of students clashed with police outside the U.S. embassy and Filipino Supreme Court, demanding the immediate withdrawal of U.S. forces and expressing rage at the Filipino Government as well. The U.S. military has maintained a presence in the Philippines since 1898.

Another anti-U.S. youth action in Manila got rowdy in June and also involved clashes with police while attempting to storm the embassy.
