UP residents to stage protest action against demolition
The Nagkakaisang Lakas ng mga Maralita (NALAMA) requests your presence at a protest action tomorrow (Tuesday / May 8, 2007) beginning 9:00 in the morning at the Oblation in front of the Administration Building, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.
Residents of villages located inside the University will hold a protest rally to oppose the UP administration’s move to rid the campus of informal settlers.
The UP administration has invoked its exemption from the coverage of the Urban Development and Housing Act (UDHA) which requires government to relocate families it evicts. The House of Representatives legal office has said UP is not exempt.
NALAMA is a peoples organization from 20 Barangays within UP Diliman Campus.
Date: May 8, 2007 (Tuesday)
Time: 9:00 AM – 12:00 NN
