‘Trabaho, serbisyo, paninirahan’

Kadamay: Unjust policies force poor to occupy housing sites

Urban poor group Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (Kadamay) marched to Mendiola yesterday to urge President Rodrigo Duterte to a dialogue in order for them to show proof that hundreds of housing units are unoccupied in Bulacan Province.
