The extremist group Bayan of the Philippines says the recent protests in Manila are meant to let Barack Obama know that his U.S. troops are not welcome in the Philippines. Under negotiation are the recent efforts of the U.S. to receive “military access” under an agreement between them and the Philippines government.

On April 28th, Obama is expected  to negotiate a mutual contract that will satisfy the United States ideology to protect the Philippines from China and other outlying offenses.

Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, otherwise known as Bayan said on Friday that they are prepared to stage multiple protests to let Obama and his constituents , that American troops are not welcomed here in the Philippines.

Obama is already on the start of his massive Asian trip which started this past Tuesday. Obama will visit Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines to push a U.S. military presence in each country under a new umbrella known as the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement or TPPA.

Bayan is protesting the fact that the TPPA agreement will give U.S. troops access to the Philippine Military Facilities and possibly railroad the original agreement to attain that access.
