MANILA, Philippines - Informal settlers whose homes along Road 10 in the city of Manila's Port Area stormed Manila City Hall Monday to protest the imminent demolition of their homes.

The residents staged their protest after receiving a 30-day Notice of Demolition last August 1, which issued by DPWH Regional Director Reynaldo G. Tagudando.

They said the demolition breaks a supposed promise by top city officials that they will not be forced to leave their homes.  The area hosts hundreds of shanties built on what have been tagged as perilous areas, mostly near waterways or are in danger of being swamped by floods.
