madali palang umasenso mga squatter?
sige takpan 'nyo lang ng tarps ang 11 million families who consider themselves poor. poverty rate is up from 45% to 55%.
unti-unti na po natin nararamdaman ang CCT.
pagkaalis ng mga delegates, tatanggalin na rin ba yung mga tarp?
or, hahayaan na lang dun hanggang sa mabulok at maging dagdag sa eye sore?
Usually kasi, pagkatapos ng event kanya-kanya ng kahoy yung mga squatters sa nakatapal na yan. Pera ng TAX PAYERS ang ginamit dyan kaya para naman masulit ang ginastos, huwag nilang hayaaang nakawin lang ng hindoropotpot na squatters.
It might be a band-aid solution pero pwede na rin kung forever naman na hindi mo na makikita yung mga SALOT NA SQUATTERS.
sana hindi na lang tanggalin para maganda sa mata at kung mabulok na e di palitan uli, makatipid pa ang gobyerno kaysa solusyunan ang kahirapan.
Yung documentary ni Howie Severino ngayon sa iWitness, tungkol naman sa pagtatakip ng Marcos govt sa mga bangkay sa trahedya sa construction ng Manila Film Center
Pagkatapos ng ADB meeting, wala na yang tarpaulin na yan. Kukunin yan ng mga squatters para pantakip sa dingding at bubong nila.
ok lang yang temporary solution since cleaning the shanties takes time. Wala na rin time ang govt na linisan yan kasi usually on a short notice ang activities na mga ganyan.
Ang problema lang niyan since wala naman nagbabantay, baka nakawin lang ang mga yero at ipagbili sa junk shop or gawing bubong sa shanties nila
sana ma-maintain pa rin nila at simulan na ang permanent solution sa pagpapaalis sa mga squatters living under the bridge, along the riverbanks, etc.
the subject of an editorial in OMAN TRIBUNE:
State of denial
Hiding poverty and not eradicating it seems to be the priority of Philippines President Benigno Aquino. This indigestible truth is evident from the putting up of advertising hoardings to hide slums from about 4,300 delegates attending an Asian Development Bank meeting. A number of organisations, including rights groups, have condemned this execrable act that must also be termed shameless as it is an attempt to deny the existence of rampant poverty in the country and hence an insult to the poor.
That poverty is widespread in the Philippines cannot be denied. A quantum jump in poverty was witnessed during the reign of the late Ferdinand Marcos, who was intent on enriching himself at the cost of the people. Since then poverty has only increased steadily under various governments for a variety of reasons. The result was that hundreds of thousands of Filipinos went abroad to work – in the Gulf countries, Taiwan and other nations in the region – resulting in a brain drain. Though the export of manpower checked poverty to some extent, it refused to go away since more and more people joined the queue of the poor, the result of a malaise caused by political and sociological turmoil that none of the governments from the late 1980s could prevent. An example is the rule of the late Corazon Aquino. Though her intentions were good, she was never stable enough to rule effectively due to an endless threat to her government from coups and rebellions. All the presidents afterwards rarely ruled without some kind of turbulence. There is the case of Joseph Estrada who was ousted by Gloria Arroyo. The hyper ambitious Arroyo in turn faced new problems. Besides chronic political instability and volatility, all the presidents had to contend with two insurgencies. The Moros as well as the communist New People’s Army have spearheaded enough violence that has killed thousands over the past few decades. Worse is the failure of successive administrations to end these insurgencies through negotiations. In fact, at times, the Moros and Manila have been close to accords during talks at Kuala Lumpur, mediated by the Malaysian government, but the attempts to achieve peace were stymied by elements with vested interests. Ending these insurgencies, especially the one by the Moros might have changed the face of the Philippines. Mindanao, the homeland of the Moros, which is rich in natural resources, would then have been exploited fully.
Only a decisive occupant of Malacanang Palace can bring peace and prosperity to the Philippines. When aquino became president, after a period of turmoil and uncertainty under Arroyo, there were hopes among many Filipinos that things would change. That has not happened so far. And it seems that the Aquino may not be any better than many of his predecessors as he is beginning to sink into a state of denial about the true and pathetic state of affairs in the Philippines. Appalling, no doubt.
Isa sa masamang side ng Pinoy Hospitality
Anu kaya gawan na rin ng visa ang Maynila? Makakapasok at makakapag-stay lamang within the Metro kapag may proof ka of employment at residence. Pag wala, tourist visa ka lang at pede ka ipa-deport uli sa pinanggalingan mong probinsya? ehehehe.
Para namang sinabi mo pag mga squatters walang trabaho. Karamihan diyan may mga trabaho sa Maynila. Mas kumpleto pa nga gamit nila sa bahay (gadgets and appliances) kesa sa hinde squatters. So kahit gawan ng visa ang Manila, meron din sila so hinde effective
Kuntento na kasi sila sa ganoong buhay kahit maliit na bahay basta may matirhan, kahit masikip ang daanan/eskinita or mahirap daanan, basta pwede madaanan ok na, kahit magulo ang lugar at maraming tao, ok lang sa kanila. Wala silang ambition na mapaganda ang lugar na tinitirhan nila kasi mas importante sa kanila may gadget na mabili para updated sila palagi
Wall lang? Dapat bubungan din. Tapos yung buong bubong lagyan ng "WELCOME to MANILA" para pag landing pa lang kitang kita na ito sa aerial view
Pero sa probinsiya namin sa Quezon, mala-palasyo mga bahay nila.
And yung trabaho na maayos din, hindi pang-underground economy na trabaho tulad ng sidewalk vendor, pedicab driver, terminal barker, collector ng pusta sa ending, takatak boys, forger sa recto, etc.
Nasaan ba sina Vice President Jejomar Binay at Gawad Kalinga head Tony Meloto? Hindi ba't tungkulin at gawain nila ang magbigay ng mga pabahay sa mga iskwater?
finally i could respond!
when you criticize something, at the very least, have an idea of what it is. don't create targets that you could easily shoot down.
I mean, why put the same cráppy system shackling our OFW's inside the country? Why oh why? Do you want to have MORE poor people? Do you actually encourage discrimination between Filipinos?
This is so very stupid.
