Looks to me like maybe a variety of mealy bug. Google "mealy bug" and check out images. Some of them are more pinkish than all white.

Definitely mealy bug.   

Muse a Jose or some sort of other forceful water spray to remove them.  Then sorey with insecticidal soap.   Depending on how bad he infestation is, you mean need to repeat this process several times.  It may even become just a matter of controlling them as they can be extremely difficult to eradicate.   If that's the case you'll also probably want to use a grandular systemic inscectiside.      

Good luck and keep us updated.
