The Acts of the Democracies




USA and Philippines

Between 1945 and 1953 the USA intervenes politically and militarily in the internal affairs of the Philippines. The CIA funds political parties it favours helping defeat reform minded parties.

The USA had installed Manuel Roxas, a Japanese collaborator during World War II. The new government issues an amnesty for collaborators, bans political organizing, stops opposition congressmen from sitting in government and directs a campaign of repression throughout the country.
