A protest organiser on Wednesday said that a Philippine police van rammed demonstrators who were protesting against the presence of U.S. troops in the country.

The protest was done outside the U.S. Embassy in Manila.

Police also fired tear gas in an attempt to disperse over a thousand protestors who had gathered.

Protestors threw red paint at the embassy’s gate and vandalised the compound’s walls with slogans reading, “U.S. troops out and US, a plague to workers”.

Renato Reyes, Secretary-General of the left-wing group Bagong Alyansang Makabayan said nearly 30 demonstrators were arrested, including a doctor and a nurse who were helping the injured.
