Community decries violent demolition


Residents of Barangay Calaanan, Caloocan City decried the violent demolition of their homes yesterday and condemned Rep. Egay Erice and the local government unit for unleashing armed police commandos against their community.

Spokespersons of the local Anakpawis chapter reveal that they still have appeals pending before higher courts at the time of the demolition. They said they have not been properly consulted by the local government and they were not informed of any relocation site before the demolition team swooped on their community.
