informal settlers in San Roque, Pagasa, Quezon City, received a 3-day demolition notice. Geno, showing the the notice he received, refused to leave.

San Roque is part of the government project with the Ayala Group of Company that will allow high-end commercial establishment rise on site, this will be the new Quezon City's Central Business District.

Geno said "We have to fight for our homes, we don't have anywhere to go. they want us to leave this place and resettled in the outskirts. we cant afford that, there is no job there for us, theres no decent electricity and water supply there".

Geno works as security guard in a commercial mall owned by Ayala in Makati.
