These shanty owners want a better deal from the city hall.

Negros Occidental Rep. Albee Benitez may be a bilyonaryo, but he does understand the plight of these informal settlers in Manila. In fact, he sympathized with the residents of Aroma Temporary Housing in Vitas, Tondo as they lobbied for an on-site rehabilitation and battled an off-city relocation pitch by the Manila City Government.

“Nakikiisa tayo sa laban KONTRA DEMOLISYON at para sa mga maralitang taga-lungsod sa kanilang panawagan na ON-SITE REHABILITATION AND DEVELOPMENT ng Aroma Temporary Housing sa Vitas, Tondo,” Benitez said as he joined the protest actions near the area.
