MANILA, Philippines — The local government of Manila on Friday declared the militant group Panday Sining as “persona non grata” after the group was recently involved in vandalism in Manila.

In a tweet, Manila Public Information Office said Manila City Council approved a resolution declaring the youth group as unwelcome in the city of Manila.


On Saturday, four members of Panday Sining, including a minor, were arrested for painting messages condemning political repression against activists at a Light Rail Transit post along Recto Avenue in Manila.

The youth group members were also apprehended for resisting police’s arrest during Bonifacio Day.

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno previously criticized Panday Sining members for vandalizing the walls of U.N. Avenue and Lagusnilad underpass.
