Janicee Buco, wearing a pair of red high heels shoes speaks before a crowd as they join Vietnamese nationals in commemoration of the Vietnam-China border war in 1979, in front of the Chinese consulate in Makati's financial district, south of Manila, the Philippines, 17 February 2014. Dozens of Filipino and Vietnamese nationals rallied outside the Chinese Embassy to protest against China's alleged bullying over the Philippines and Vietnam territorial dispute in the South China Sea. Protesters aimed to support Manila in an ongoing stand-off with China. China claims most of the South China Sea and Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Brunei have competing claims over it.
