Merville settlers ready sewage bags to repel demolition teams


Residents of a private compound in Parañaque City on Thursday prepared plastic bags full of human waste to repel demolition teams which were ordered to demolish their homes.
Residents at Tucuma Compound in Barangay Merville placed human waste in plastic bags that they placed in a large drum, to throw at the demolition team, radio dzBB's Sam Nielsen reported. "Isip namin ang hindi nakakasakit (We want to repel them but we don't want to cause injuries)," said one of the residents, Ramil Asturias. However, other residents were reported on GMA News TV to have stockpiled bottles for throwing at police and demolitions teams.  Asturias said the families in the area have lived there for decades and it would be hard for them to find work if they are relocated. The dzBB report said the residents expect the demolition to occur any day this week, possibly Thursday morning. Only last Monday, at least one person was killed while 39 were injured after violence marred the demolition of stalls at the Silverio Compound in Parañaque City. Meanwhile, in Quezon City, residents at a compound in Commonwealth village whose homes may be demolished anytime held a vigil Wednesday night. Some 40 families at a compound in Commonwealth compound said they are not budging even after a 30-day notice of eviction for them was to lapse Thursday, radio dzBB's Rodil Vega reported. — LBG, GMA News
