Anti-Apec protesters in Manila, Philippines were met by police with water cannons and Katy Perry in attempts to disperse the demonstrating crowds.
Hundreds of protesters clashed with police on Thursday morning calling for Apec to be dismantled and accusing the trade bloc of taking advantage of poorer countries.
Demonstrators could be seen carrying signs and chanting, “Down with Apec, down with America”.
Police on trucks with water cannons shot in the crowds and blasted Katy Perry, Dolly Parton, David Guetta, and the Bee Gees music over loudspeakers in an attempt to disperse the crowds.
Local media footage showed police tapping the batons against their shields in time with the music and while some protesters found amusement in the situation other became more enraged as police blocked protesters from getting near the Apec venue.
