Student protests

A student activist shouts anti-US slogans during a protest in front of the US embassy in Manila on February 3, 2010, ahead of the arrival of the new US ambassador to the country. Harry Thomas, the nominee to be the US ambassador to the Philippines called for free and peaceful elections and hoped for progress on corruption and human rights concerns. Thomas impressed his Senate confirmation hearing by speaking briefly in the Filipino tongue of Tagalog, and pledged to nurture the 'long-standing friendship' between theUS and the Philippines.
