    Background: The Philippines on June 12 celebrated the 84th anniversary of the end of Spanish colonial rule. A special ceremony was held at Manila's Luneta Park stadium. President Ferdinand Marcos and Mrs. Imelda Marcos watched the ceremony, which included a march-past by standard-bearing troops. It was a solemn ceremony, but elsewhere it was a different story. Large numbers of protestors gathered at the United States embassy and chanted anti-Marcos and anti-American slogans. They gave clenched-fist salutes, sang patriotic songs, and distributed leaflets to passing motorists. Nearby, squads of riot police kept a close watch on proceedings. They tolerated the protest for a while, but eventually forced the demonstrators to move to a nearby street.
