MANILA, Philippines - Around 128 informal settler-families in Muntinlupa City on Wednesday trooped again to the East Service Road and  posed to barricade the path to keep a demolition crew at bay, urban poor rights advocacy group Kadamay said.

Kadamay said the families, belonging to the San Isidro Labrador Neighborhood Association, were bracing for a possible demolition of their houses at Carmina Compound in Barangay Cupang.
 
The residents went to the East Service Road of the South Super Highway as early as 5 a.m., ready to block a demolition team, Kadamay added.
 
The group said the residents are demanding from the private owner, Sonia Lim, to provide them with relocation.
 
They also called on the city officials to intervene in the pending demolition of its constituents.
 
Kadamay said that although the demolition this morning did not push through, the residents will be at the area to defend their homes "at all cost."
