6,000 people peacefully protested the VFA at the Philippine palace gates on September 16, 1998. The protest coincided with the seventh anniversary of a Philippine Senate vote in 1991 rejecting the extension of U.S. leases on military bases in the former American colony. A women's group involved in the protest was concerned about the social implications of the agreement, saying it would worsen prostitution. ("Thousands protest U.S.-Philippine military accord," Reuters, 16 September 1998)

Protest of the VFA came from the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women-Asia Pacific (CATW-AP). CATW said that the approval of the VFA "could aggravate prostitution and will open doors to increased sexual exploitation of our women and children." Under the proposed agreement, about 10,000 US military servicemen will have access to 22 docking ports all over the country. CATW fears the unlimited number of US troops allowed entry and their indefinite length of stay will result in an increase in the number of prostituted women and children. Pedophilia, unwanted Amerasian children, and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS virus are also expected to increase due to the presence of US troops. Military prostitution, it added, has always been a problem in the past when the US bases were still in the country. Past experience clearly showed that the security of the Filipino people, especially women and children, from the US military was never taken into account.

    The ratification of the Visiting Forces Agreement between the Philippines and the United States will exacerbate ongoing sexual exploitation, particularly of poor women and children. The presence of US forces in the past led to: thousands of neglected Amerasian children, women and children sold to purveyors of sexual exploitation, and the Philippines being referred to as the "sex paradise" of Asia. Despite this, President Estrada pushes for the ratification of the VFA. (Aida Santos project director of Philippine Network Against Trafficking in Women)

    The number of prostituted women and children are predicted to increase when the government opens 22 ports to the United States for joint military exercises under Republic of Philippines and United States Visiting Forces Agreement. (GABRIELA, Diana Mendoza, "RP Has 400,000 Prostitutes," TODAY, 25 February 1998)

    For many decades, a huge prostitution system was organized and regulated to service US military stationed in several bases. (CATW - Asia Pacific, Trafficking in Women and Prostitution in the Asia Pacific)

    Entertainment is the main channel of trafficking women and girls, but a range of establishments from dirt-floor beer houses to karaoke clubs to beach resorts to expensive health clubs provide prostitution for men of every social class. An enormous infrastructure of prostitution had been established by the presence of US military bases for the 'rest and recreation’ system especially during and since the Vietnam War. (CATW - Asia Pacific, Trafficking in Women and Prostitution in the Asia Pacific)

    There are about 50,000 Filipino Amerasians in the Philippines, fathered by American service men. They have remained underprivileged and targets of the flesh trade because of their looks.

#11,
Prostitution is an honorable profession.
It is when you turn other nations into prostitutes of your own country that it becomes a dirty profession.
Your filthy country is the latter.


If it is so noble would you be proud if your daughter took it up.   Would that make you happy?
