Filipinos will not yield

In a statement issued by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and posted on X last Thursday, he unequivocally affirmed the sentiment of Filipinos that “…we will not be cowed into silence, submission or subservience” in the face of relentless bullying and harassment by Chinese Coast Guard (CCG) and maritime militia vessels in the West Philippine Sea.
