Members of the Philippine leftist women's group Gabriela shout anti-US slogans as they attend a rally in front of the US Embassy in Manila on September 14, 2009. Women's protesters called for the junking of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) which allows US troops to take part in joint military exercises in the Philippines, after a decade since it was ratified. The protesters accused the US of meddling in Philippine affairs. AFP PHOTO/Jay DIRECTO (Photo credit should read JAY DIRECTO/AFP/Getty Images)
