Supporters of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) who demonstrated at a recent protest outside a Manila zoo risk deportation, Philippines immigration chief Marcelino Libanan has warned.
The demonstration featured the usual scantily-clad PETA females protesting in front of young children. A previous entry last week on this site mentioned the country maintains a tradition of staunch conservatism.
"They cannot just protest here, especially if it violates the culture of Filipinos," said Libanan. "Foreigners should have no business joining these mass actions because it is tantamount to meddling in our country's internal affairs."
The violent lobby was customarily unfazed.
"It won't stop our protests, and it won't stop us from speaking for animals," said Canadian supporter Ashley Fruno.
