Informal settlers burn tyres next to portraits of Philippine President Benigno Aquino (R) and Vice-President Jejomar Binay, as they set up barricade at the entrance to their homes in anticipation of a demolition operation in the financial district of Manila on September 19, 2012. Around 250 informal settler families living on a 870,000 square metre lot will be affected by the demolition, to give way for the construction of a three-storey multi-purpose building for the city government. More than two million people in Metro Manila, or roughly one fifth of the sprawling city's population, live in shanty towns as so-called informal settlers.
