CEBU CITY — Less than 100 members of militant groups in Cebu tore and burned the flags of China and the United States during their rally to  commemorate the 120th anniversary of the declaration of Philippine independence.

The group converged at Fuente Osmeña Rotunda about 10 a.m. on Tuesday before marching down to Colon Street in downtown Cebu City.

A short program was held where the speakers took turns in criticizing the administration, particularly for failing to protect the Filipino fishermen harassed by the Chinese military in the West Philippine Sea.
