Why is Teresita Ang-See silent on PH-China row?

/ 09:17 PM May 01, 2012

The Chinese community in the Philippines seems to be so quiet about the Scarborough standoff between the Philippines and China. Where before the Chinese community, through Teresita Ang-See, the outspoken anti-crime crusader and human rights advocate, would make her voice heard whenever political and social issues came to the fore, now it seems that her lips are sealed.

The nation expects Ang-See to support the Philippine claim to Scarborough Shoal, after all she is a Filipino citizen and has lived in the Philippines most of her life or, perhaps, was even born here. Her comforting and wise words, often heard in the past for victims of kidnapping and heinous crimes, are very much needed at this time.

It will show that she cares for her fellow Filipinos and Chinese Filipinos (Tsinoys) who want to resolve the problem as much as everyone does.


Let’s hear Ang-See’s voice on the current PH-China standoff. Now.
