Amidst US-China Dispute in South China Sea, DC Tribunal Tackles US Drone Ops, Violations to Philippine Sovereignty

International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines

WASHINGTON - As ongoing US-China military tensions over the South China Sea escalate, international human rights advocates are gathering in Washington DC to examine violations to Philippine sovereignty and territorial integrity as a result of escalating US military presence. An International Peoples’ Tribunal (IPT) on the Philippines, scheduled for July 16-18 at the Catholic University of America, will tackle the human rights situation in the Philippines as well as the impact of US military presence which is increasing by way of the newly-signed Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA).
