The World

September 02, 1985

About 5,000 demonstrators marched through downtown Manila to protest against U.S. military bases and a nuclear power plant in the Philippines. The march and a rally later in front of the central post office, both peaceful, marked the U.N.-declared International Day of Trade Union Action for Peace. The marchers objected to Clark Air Base and the Subic Bay Naval Base. Bonifacio Tupaz, head of a leftist union group, denounced the nuclear plant, due to go into operation later this year, as unneeded and dangerous.
