Hundreds of members of the United Vendors Alliance marched to the Manila City Hall yesterday as the ultimatum given by authorities against sidewalk vendors lapses today.
The vendors brought mock coffins to symbolize the death of their livelihood due to Mayor Erap Estrada’s zero-vending policy.
To date, series of clearing operations were being held against the vendors of Divisoria, Raon, Taft Avenue and Sta. Cruz, among others. They also called on President Duterte to intervene on the issue.
