Hundreds of protesters scuffled with police in Manila today in opposition to Obama’s upcoming visit to the Philippines.

NBC News reported:

Police armed with truncheons, shields and a fire hose clashed with more than 100 left-wing activists who rallied at the U.S. Embassy in Manila on Wednesday to oppose a visit by President Barack Obama and an expected security pact that would increase the American military presence in the Philippines.

Some of the protesters carried paper U.S. flags with the message: “Obama not welcome.”

Obama, who landed in Japan on Wednesday, is due to visit South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines over the next five days as part of a wider attempt to “rebalance” and “pivot” toward Asia.
