"Bringing the Spratlys to Light: a Crash Course on the Philippines' Dispute with China"

Did you know that there are billions of dollars worth of oil in and around the Spratly Islands?

Did you know that the Philippines may own some or all of this oil?

Did you know that China claims ownership to all this oil and has taken aggressive actions in Philippine territory?

Unfortunately, many do not know much about the Spratlys issue.

You are urged and invited to learn more and to discuss this issue at this community forum by Filipino Young Professionals & Students sponsored by CORE, Meeting of the Minds Manila, and UniPro.

Free Admission. All are welcome to attend, learn and speak their mind freely. This forum will be tolerant, respectful and appreciative of all thoughts and opinions shared.

Moderated by Ruby Veridiano (Meeting of the Minds Manila) & Randy Gonzales (UniPro)

Confirmed Speaker: Attorney Arnedo Valera is an intentional law scholar, immigration lawyer and Executive Director for the Migrant Heritage Commission.
