Members of the Peoples’ Democratic Hawkers and Vendors Alliance-Kadamay called on the government to release two of their members who were detained following a violent eviction of vendors from Rizal Park a day before the Papal mass last week.

The group protested in front of the office of the National Park Development Council and the Western Police District headquarters as they appealed to authorities to release Grace Tagoc and Sampaguita Lyco.

The group also urged the government to let them to return to the park where they have been vending for decades.
