For issue 33 of our Asia Research Briefs (ARBs) Hazel Dizon (Geography) shares her research on a housing occupation by thousands of urban poor near Manila in March 2017 who claimed idle government housing as their own. It examines the impacts of increasingly neoliberal policies and practices on social services as well as the power struggle between the elite and the poor in the Philippines.
