REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – As details emerge in the alleged murder of an Olongapo City transgender woman at the hand of a US Marine, activists in the US and the Philippines have once again called for the scrapping of the Visiting Forces Agreement.

In a live studio interview, US Pinoys for Good Governance President Rodel Rodis discusses why his group continues to support the VFA and why junking this form of military cooperation with the US would hurt the Philippines.

    Scrapping VFA means surrendering Philippine sovereignty to Communist China.

    I think that these militants think that just because just one lousy apple in one basket all apples are rotten.I agree with the President Aquino there is no place on earth free of crime of sort.These activist should know better when they are in the US!! It is really very unfortunate that Jennifer has to die when in about 3months she should be joining her fiance in Germany.Can’t figure out why she had to go with a total stranger who is had a few drinks already and with one aim .That’s that so let us ask justice for Jennifer.
