Filipino Protesters Burn Effigy of Barack Obama
Filipino protesters burned an effigy of President Barack Obama in Manila on Monday as the U.S. signed a deal that gives its military greater access to Philippine bases.
Some 800 activists burned mock U.S. flags and chanted “no-bama, no bases, no war” on the road leading to Malacanang Palace, where Obama met with Philippine President Benigno Aquino III. The effigy showed Obama riding a chariot pulled by Aquino, who was depicted as a dog.
