Gov’t makes quiet protests on WPS – Palace

Malacaang on Monday denied that the government had not been protesting against China's aggression in the West Philippine Sea (WPS) following a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey that showed 81 percent of Filipinos disapproved of official inaction on the sea dispute.
