Earlier this morning, a six-jeepney delegation from Sorsogon travelled to Legazpi City in Albay where they could join other people who are opposed to the visit, as well.

The groups insist that the visit of the American president, like the Balikatan Exercises, is a threat to Philippine sovereignty.

Previously, militant groups in the region also held protests in Albay against the Balikatan Exercises.

Meanwhile, President Obama has arrived in the Philippines for his first official state visit as of the time of this writing.--BICOLSTANDARD.COM
