Ever Grand Gotesco Mall, Under siege!





The story of this pictures starts from the bottom. Hindi ko kasi alam ayusin. Hehehe.
So when I arrived at Caloocan at about 9:00 A.M. a mass is being prepared by the Ever Grand Gotesco employee (Caloocan Branch). Guards are all over the place more especially on main entrance like the second picture on the left.

By afternoon, traffic had been re-routed so that jeepneys and cars coming from Blumentritt to Monumento had to turn right on the 10th Avenue. Those coming from Monumento to Blumentritt or Sta Cruz were also re-routed. Look Ma! no traffic.

If you notice there are a lot of people wearing white T-shirt that have identical numbers printed on their front and back. The series of number run as high as 1,300 plus. Thinking of hakot system in new era. Concerned citizen daw sila ng Caloocan? neknek niyo! Sino lolokohin niyo?
Kami pa. hehehe. Tell it to the marines sabi ng lolo ko.
Later on the day, the Caloocan Sherri f arrived accompanied by police. Some SWAT team are also around. They are met by Ever Gotesco battery of lawyer.
What are they fighting for?
According to Caloocan Mayor the management of Gotesco Mall must pay the City government real property tax in Millions of pesos. According to the lawyer of Gotesco Mall they have acquired and paid the said property only the year 2008 and they didn't owe the City Government anything.
Which is which? While they are on a tug of war situation a lot of suffering pedestrians are silently complaining.
As I always love to say-abangan ang susunod na kabanata.
