Sucat road closed due to violent demolition

MANILA, Philippines – The north and southbound lanes along Sucat Road in Paranaque City remain closed to all types of vehicles after tension escalated on Monday between residents of Silverio Compound and police.

Nino Dayao of Paranaque traffic bureau said all lanes in both sides of Sucat Road were closed to motorists since early Monday as Silverio Compound residents blocked entry points to their community with wooden barricades.

The residents, along with militant group Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (Kadamay), vowed to resist attempts of the government to demolish their homes.

Authorities could not say yet when Sucat Road will be reopened for motorists.

Police estimated around 10,000 residents blocked a demolition team and policemen from entering the area.   The residents, as of press time, were holding a dialogue with Rep. Edwin Olivares.

The residents claimed that a city ordinance ordered the expropriation of the area in their favor but despite this, the city government obtained a demolition order from a Pasay court earlier this year.

    The best way for undisciplined and violent illegal settlers to go away is to use tear-gas in grenade launchers.. but if they start threatening our police force who are just doing their jobs..

    We can use nerve gas.

      Agree. Or the police can always use the excuse that they shot someone when he tried to get their gun.

      Tough? You bet! Let’s get tough on these tough rogues.

    I hope both sides respects what have been decided to fix this problem if there is any.  If diplomatic way can be done then start the negotiations. Those settlers are Filipinos too we hope we give some sympathy for them though we know they are eye sore for most of us. Let’s help each other not to let our heart burst just because we felt we are not taking care of.

    if noynoy kapon and his prostitutes can defy the courts, why can’t the squatters under threat of losing their homes and livelihood? this is the season of disobedience, folks.

  • ahron veldad

    Where have all our humanity been in this issue, whether the squatters deserved it or not, or perhaps, maybe even if the City Government expropriated it for and in the interests of development, what we see in this lamentable scenario is the hubris of many who wields the power over the powerless, the haves over the have-nots. Is this the kind of society where we all wanted to see as sustainable, responsive and pro-poor. Ang masama neto, most of those who get elected to positions in government used these people before and even now, abuse them for their lacked of opportunities. 

    Had our government not failed them in providing better opportunities for economic growth that trickles to them, don’t we see cooperation instead? What we see is that we failed them at the onset of job creation, not only that, we wanted them displaced because the City Government expropriated the property. We speak of 10,000 people whose lives will forever altered because of this and the kind government should, at all cost, avoid. Aren’t we here to make the lives of others better than yesterday? Is this how we turn innocent, powerless and mainly jobless Filipinos into criminals for all they could have dreamed of is a decent home?

    This is inhumane talaga.  Sa ibang posters please—never ever think na porke’t mahirap at squatter ang mga taong ito ay pwede niyo na silang itrato ng ganito.   Nagsisimula ang maling kaisipan when you start thinking you are better than these people—but believe me—you are not!!! Tao din sila katulad niyo–mahirap man yan o squatter!!
