‘China out’ shouts were once again heard in front of the Chinese Consulate in Makati City Aug. 11 as activists condemn the “water-cannoning” by Chinese ships of a Philippine Navy -chartered civilian boats carrying supplies to Marines stationed at BRP Sierra Madre grounded at Ayungin Shoal in West Philippine Sea.

The protesters also made a symbolic “hosing down” of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s portrait.
