(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hundreds of protesters marched the streets of Manila on Tuesday (November 14) voicing their anger against the lack of attention to human rights at the gathering of ASEAN nations going on several blocks away. Shouting slogans and holding placards with signs against U.S. President Donald Trump and Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, they marched towards the Presidential Palace before gathering around and burning a caricature of the U.S. flag, decorated with bombs and skulls and a sign reading "Death to Imperialism and Fascism". A separate smaller group more focused on climate change issues tried to force their way, unsuccessfully, through police barricades before defacing posters of leaders gathered at the meetings. Leaders of Asian nations meeting in Manila over the last two days skirted around the mass exodus of Rohingya Muslims triggered by Myanmar's military crackdown, disappointing human rights groups who were hoping for a tough stand on the humanitarian crisis.
