Please stop Saying China Sea. It is now Asian Seas referring to the formerly named South and East China Seas

Demilitarize the Asian Seas

Fiery Cross ReefRINJ Women suggest the official name “Asian Seas be applied to include what was formerly known as The East China Sea and The South China Sea.

Why? Disambiguation. These are international waters. China is now claiming that because of the name, that China owns the oceans therein.

A protest organized by regional humanitarian groups seeks to rename the China Seas to Asian Seas for disambiguation reasons and to remind the world of the Asian communities surrounding the Asian Seas.

All this military buildup that has grown to the point where nuclear submarines are smashing into things below the water is endangering millions of ordinary women and their children and families.

“These regions are comprised of Chinese, Malaysians, Indonesians, Japanese, Filipinos, Thais, Vietnamese, South Koreans, North Koreans, and many more too many to name enumerating up to 4 billion people and we do not want our region sacrificed to American and Australian hegemony nor do we want our waterways congested with American warships of any kind,” say the organizers of a series of  protests planned to start 11 November 2o21.

International Court Tribunals have denied the legitimacy of China claiming to own the Asian Seas. (Tribunal Decision).
