Caloocan vendors protest clearing operations

account_balanceCaloocan chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

About 50 vendors from different groups in Caloocan City protested over the road clearing operations in the city.

The protestors led by the Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (Kadamay)-Metro Manila sought a dialog with the local government as they rallied against the clearing operations that were undertaken in the city Monday morning.

In a letter addressed to Caloocan City Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan, the Nagkakaisang Manininda ng Monumento (NMN) asked for a moratorium on the clearing operations, which started after the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) ordered Metro Manila mayors to clear their cities of road obstructions.

Should this be met, the group said they will be implementing a single-line vending policy. They will also use only pushcarts, and not boxes, in selling their items, only use big umbrellas during rainy and severely hot days, ban setting up stalls along roads, and keep their areas clean.

Authorities can confiscate the products of vendors who will violate these rules, the group said.

“Batid namin ang pangangailangang linisin ang mga kalsada at kami at handang makipagtulungan sa lokal na pamahalaan para isakatuparan ito at para rin maipagpatuloy namin ang aming marangal at disenteng kabuhayang magtinda (We know there is a need to clean our streets, and we are ready to cooperate with the local government to implement this so we can also continue our honorable and decent work),” the letter read.

Meanwhile, Malapitan, along with Metro Manila Development (MMDA) Chairman Danny Lim and MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia led the clearing operation at Bagong Barrio in Caloocan City Monday morning, where the barangay halls of Barangays 136 and 137 were demolished.
