Last 12th June 2016 a group of 15 Filipino volunteers, one American volunteer, and one Vietnamese volunteer have sailed to Bajo de Masinloc also known as Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal to bring and place the Philippine flag on top of the rock in that shoal in celebration of Philippine Independence Day.
The volunteers were member of Kalayaan Atin Ito movement and SAIL (Sea Access by International Law) traveled by a wooden fishing boat "MB Hani John" to Bajo de Masinloc, however near the entrance of the shoal they were stopped and harassed by China Coast Guard vessels.
After about 3 hours stand-off with China Coast Guard the group of patriotic volunteers returned to the town of Masinloc Zambales.
The group of patriotic youth onboard a wooden fishing boat sailed from the fishing port of Masinloc town of Zambales province.
