Urban poor Filipinos make history: #OccupyBulacan 6.000 vacant houses
March 8, the International Women's Day, Filipinos women and KADAMAY led a large contingent of those living in relocation sites/resettlement areas in Bulacan, to occupy about 5,280 vacant houses. The government has not responded kindly to the mass action.They have set up food blockades, harassment is non-stop, against urban poor Filipinos. On March 10, the government gave Kadamay and the thousands of urban poor Filipinos an ultimatum to vacate the premises within 7 days or they will evict all with extreme force.
As a response about 20,000 people have so far occupied about 6,000 houses.
The IAI stand up in solidarity and call for support Kadamay and the people for Zero Evictions Bulacan!» Urban poor Filipinos make history: #OccupyBulacan 6.000 vacant houses
