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.

Kandila para kay Mary Jane

Nagsindi at nagtirik ng kandila ang iba’t ibang grupo sa iba’t ibang lugar sa Kamaynilaan noong Lunes bilang simbolo ng protesta sa nakatakdang pagbitay kay Mary Jane Veloso, Overseas Filipino Worker na biktima ng illegal drug syndicate sa bansang Indonesia.

Nananawagan din ang iba’t ibang grupo sa mga mamamayang Pilipino na huwag palagpasin ang kapabayaan ng gubyerno sa kaso ng mga OFW.

Sa kanyang limang taon bilang Presidente halos ibugaw umano ni Noynoy Aquino ang mga Pilipino palabas ng bansa. Mula 4,500 na Pilipinong lumalabas ng bansa noong umupo si Aquino sa Palasyo, 6,092 na ang migranteng manggagawa ang lumilipad araw-araw. Umaabot na rin sa 12 hanggang13 milyong Pilipino ang nasa ibayong dagat upang makipagsapalaran. Katumbas ito ng 30 porsyento ng lakas-paggawa ng Pilipinas.

Marking the first day of the Holly week, Anakpawis together with urban poor group Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (KADAMAY) today staged their own progressive version of the passion of the Christ. It cited six major issues of the people in which President Noynoy Aquino failed to address — landlessness, low wage, demolition of urban poor, massive conversion of local fishing grounds, the continuing neglect of Yolanda survivors, unabated skyrocketing of prices and basic utilities.
