I'm going there later today n am supposed to write a follow-up, more human/dramatic side of the story. I really have no idea what to expect.
I want to be angry / cry / stand with them at the barricade! but thats not why i was there on the first place.. *sigh*
I've seen news of people getting evicted. The city is over its limit and starts to shove out its weakest: the poor, the uneducated, the marginalized..
Why so many evictions? i'd like to blame those environmentalist who keeps on demanding for more open green spaces.
or those city planners who would like to solve the traffic jams and replace crowded shanties with pillars for MRT and monorail..
1,007 people is not a small figure. it's not something u can easily ignore.
what am i going to ask? are you sad the city does not want to acknowledge you as its inhabitant?
what am i going to say to the governor next time i see him? "hey, great job with the evictions!"?
