We condemn in strongest possible terms the violent demolition and killing of a resident in Silverio Compound in Paranaque. The demolition should immediately be stopped and officials responsible for the violence and shooting should be held responsible. There should be an independent and impartial investigation of the crime and justice should be served.
The violent demolition, arrests and murder done by the police is testament of how anti-poor, violent and heartless the Aquino government is. This is not the first time this has happened under the Aquino government, violent demolition activities have also been done in San Roque, Quezon City and there are plans to demolish more homes under Aquino’s Public Private Partnership Programs.
Apparently, the demolition is to pave way for the building of a condominium of Henry Sy’s SM Development Corporation. We condemn Henry Sy’s greed and the government’s anti-poor, pro-profit development plans. The Aquino government is clearly in cahoots with rich capitalists such as Sy against the poor.
We are calling on the youth and people to condemn the demolition and hold various actions in the following days to condemn the Aquino government, the Paranaque LGU and Henry Sy’s corporate greed.
