It is ok to hold a Philippines Cultural Day in a public place.
But it is not ok to hold a foreign country's independence day in the public space on the soil of another sovereign land. I think it is offending.
Unless I have interpreted the upcoming Philippines Independence Day celebration wrongly, I think every one should be sensitive to the sovereignty of the local country.
I guess all would have been just fine if they called it just "Philippines Day". Making it Independence Day made it kind of political.
