Roy Velez of Bayan-NCR says there are five urban poor residents killed under the Aquino administration. All were killed because they were fighting for their right to their homes.

Velez said that the widespread demolitions of urban poor communities are not only happening in Metro Manila but in the entire country as well.

He also belied Aquino’s claim that the unemployment rate is decreasing because there are many Filipinos who have been retrenched from their work.
