More of the Bat People...



They called themselves the "Bat People" because their houses are located under the bridge.... just like the way bats attach themselves to tree branches or cave roofs...


A very small place shared by so many people...

their standard of living clearly shows they live below the poverty line...

and they still reproduce more children who would live under the same roof with them,

under the same circumstances...

RH/ FP issues , population problem, poverty and environmental degradation

because of where and how they live... it's all there...



How can the government not see this???
These pictures indeed depict a thousand words.
Or maybe they do, they just refuse to admit it....
The reality is too glaring to ignore...
don't you think they have been in denial for far too long...
