Not funny! Ex-Solgen Hilbay calls for removal of ‘Philippines, province of China’ banners


In case you missed it, the Philippines has apparently become a province of China.

This was the message on red banners posted on a number of footbridges in Metro Manila, which has triggered a firestorm among concerned citizens.

“NOT FUNNY,” former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay tweeted, sharing a photo of the controversial pro-China tarpaulin he found.

“On this day, July 12, we commemorate our victory in Philippines v. China. On Metro Manila footbridges, these tarps suddenly appear,” he added.

Hilbay called for the immediate removal of the pro-China tarpaulins. “MMDA, LGUs, and citizens should immediately take these down,” he said.
