  • Are you going to Scarborough Shoal?

  • Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

  • Ready to catch some big fish?

  • What are you talking about, Chris?

  • Our fishing trip you told me about.

  • You knowfishing tripwas a code word, right,

  • for going to the Scarborough Shoal?

  • The Scarborough Shoal?

  • The disputed territory the Chinese Coast Guard is patrolling?

  • Yeah, that Scarborough Shoal.

  • Ok.

  • It’s like two or three hours there and back, right?

  • Ok, it’s 19 hours.

  • 19 hours round trip

  • Each way.

  • Ok.

  • Where’s our yacht?

  • So instead of the nice, relaxing fishing trip

  • I thought we’d be going on,

  • were going on a 120-mile journey

  • to the Scarborough Shoal

  • in the middle of the South China Sea.

  • That’s the center of a hotly contested territorial dispute

  • between The Philippines and China.

  • So, how do we get there?

  • Why, were hitching a ride on a Filipino fishing boat.

  • Were going to be traveling in style.

  • The Bubhoy fishing boat.

  • Joining the China Uncensored team are three members

  • of the Philippine Daily Inquirer,

  • the biggest newspaper in the Philippines.

  • Little do they know

  • what theyre getting themselves into.

  • Yar!

  • Shiver me timbers!

  • Row faster, ya lazy dog!

  • Aye, Captain!

  • Are you guys going to do this the entire trip?

  • Argh, we be seamen,

  • you wouldn’t understand, you landlubber.

  • Landlubber!

  • We've done several episodes on the South China Sea,

  • but being here,

  • knowing the Chinese coast guard could be

  • just over the horizon,

  • feels a little different.

  • I'm sure well be fine, but just in case...

  • Hey guys!

  • Where can I get a life vest?

  • Oh, I don’t think there are any left, Chris.

  • What?

  • Well, I guess the Filipino fishermen don’t wear any

  • and theyre all right.

  • Oh, you didn’t tell him about the...

  • Oh, well, I mean, it was back in March, so...

  • Woah, wait, wait.

  • What happened?

  • I mean, this ship got rammed by the Chinese Coast Guard.

  • This ship got rammed by the Chinese Coast Guard

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh.

  • Uh, I think I’m gonna go talk to the captain.

  • Could you tell me more about the Chinese Coast Guard

  • ramming this boat?

  • How they drove into it?

  • I’m afraid.

  • Because my son was driving this boat when they hit this boat.

  • So what was the situation like back in March

  • with the fishermen?

  • Based on accounts of the fishermen,

  • we were being driven away by the Chinese Coast Guard vessels

  • when they tried to get closer to the Shoal.

  • Some of the boats were rammed by the Chinese Coast Guard vessels,

  • like this boat were on right now.

  • And the Coast Guard

  • the Chinese Coast Guard

  • even used water cannons to drive away Filipino fishermen.

  • Which also happened to this boat, too?

  • Yes, exactly.

  • Not exactly reassuring.

  • But despite the dangers,

  • Filipino fishermen keep trying to come back.

  • Not only can they catch far more fish near the

  • shallow waters of the Scarborough Shoal,

  • the lagoon inside is also a safe haven during dangerous storms.

  • Except when the Chinese Coast Guard blocks you.

  • For four years.

  • But a few weeks ago,

  • Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte met with Chinese leader

  • Xi Jinping.

  • Now there are reports the Chinese Coast Guard are letting

  • some Filipino fishing boats at least go close to the Shoal.

  • So were off to see just how close.

  • Well, it’s dawn in the South China Sea.

  • The fishermen are taking a moment

  • to see if they can catch some fish,

  • and then well head off the Scarborough Shoal,

  • where well be holding a fan meet-up with the Coast Guard.

  • The fishermen we spoke to have different opinions

  • about the Scarborough Shoal.

  • Some of them would be happy to be able

  • to fish there again.

  • Others are concerned that President Duterte

  • may have weakened the Philippines' claims

  • to the area.

  • But none of them want the Chinese Coast Guard

  • hanging around.

  • So Matt,

  • it’s been about 19 hours now.

  • We should be seeing the Shoal pretty soon, right?

  • I just talked to the captain.

  • It’s going to be 27 hours.

  • That’s—cool.

  • Captain's log:

  • It feels like weve been on this boat forever.

  • I think I may be coming down with something.

  • Shelley!

  • Shelley!

  • Is this scurvy?

  • Weve only been on this boat for like 24 hours.

  • But is it scurvy?

  • Captain's log: hour 24.5.

  • Theyre all plotting against me.

  • Ben Affleck.

  • Ben Affleck?

  • The best Batman is LEGO Batman.

  • Captain's log: hour 24.6.

  • I am alone.

  • I have only one true friend.

  • It’s just you and me now, Milson!

  • Chris, Chris!

  • Were almost at the Shoal.

  • Oh, great.

  • Let’s go.

  • 11 miles out from the Shoal.

  • The captain tells us that usually here,

  • the Chinese Coast Guard would already be forcing us back.

  • No sign of them yet.

  • Well, we are approaching the Scarborough Shoal,

  • which means we are within China’s Nine-Dash Line.

  • That’s the boundary of what they claim is Chinese territory.

  • And weve spotted around nine Chinese Coast Guard vessels.

  • You can maybe make them out just over that way.

  • So wish us luck;

  • we have no idea what’s going to happen.

  • It’s...a little more intimidating than I imagined.

  • We are dwarfed by some of the larger Chinese vessels,

  • including the two guarding the lagoon entrance.

  • Our captain is too nervous to approach them,

  • so were going around the side in small boats

  • to avoid being intercepted.

  • Well, we finally made it to the Scarborough Shoal.

  • It used to be that Filipino, Malaysian, and Vietnamese fishermen

  • would all come and fish here at the same time.

  • They would even meet together and eat on the Shoal.

  • But in 2012,

  • China asserted its claim to the region

  • and all that stopped.

  • Well, as you can see,

  • it’s high tide at the Shoal,

  • so you can’t see much of it.

  • But as far as I’m concerned,

  • this territorial dispute is over.

  • Oh.

  • It’s solid rock.

  • Wait, what’s that, Shelley?

  • It’s coral!

  • Oh.

  • Sailing to the Scarborough Shoal

  • has definitely made this territorial dispute

  • more real for me.

  • Especially how it affects the lives of these ordinary fishermen

  • caught up in circumstances beyond their control.

  • For now,

  • the situation seems to be as calm

  • as the tranquil waters around the shoal.

  • But out here on the open ocean,

  • you never know what storms could be gathering

  • just beyond the horizon.

  • And so we beat on,

  • boats against the current,

  • borne back ceaselessly into the past.

  • Man, that was the coolest thing weve ever done.

  • I can’t wait to get back to Manila and have some lumpia.

  • You know it’s another 27 hours back, right?

Are you going to Scarborough Shoal?
