PH a province of China? No, never

Friday, May 15, 2020


 It all started when China started to claim the West Philippine Sea. The Government has been quiet about it lately but the Chinese government is now busy establishing its foothold on our islands in the West Philippine Sea.

A couple of months ago, President Rodrigo Duterte jokingly suggested to China that it make the Philippines as a province.

"Kung gusto 'nyo, gawin 'nyo na lang kaming province, parang Fujian ," He said during the anniversary of the Chinese Business Club.

Before that, Red tarpaulin banners with the words, "Welcome to the Philippines, Province of China" already mysteriously appeared on footbridges across Manila.

Last week, a government owned radio station, Radyo Pilipinas aired ‘Wow China,’ a cross cultural segment that promotes chinese culture and traditions in the country.

And now, netizens noticed that social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram now include "Philippines, Province of China" as an option for location check-ins.

These options become available only through Geotagging. In case you're not familiar with it, Geotagging is the process of adding geographical identification metadata to various media such as a geotagged photograph or video, websites, SMS messages, QR Codes or RSS feeds and is a form of geospatial metadata.

Our opinion about the Philippines becoming a province of China? — It's offensive. It is an insult to our sovereignty and fallen heroes who fought for our country against time. The Philippines, our country, is not and will never be a province of China.

Here’s how to help remove “Philippines, Province of China” as a location here in Facebook:

1. Go to Create Post
2. Click Check In
3. Type “Philippines, Province of China”
4. Long press the location, then click “inappropriate content or not a public place”
