Vendors Seek Consideration After QC Task Force Disiplina Confiscates Their Products

Quezon City Task Force Disiplina confiscated the products of illegal vendors but sellrs asked for consideration amid pandemic.

On Monday early morning (November 8, 2021), the Quezon City Task Force Disiplina launched a clearing operation with the aim to remove the illegal vendors at the sidewalk causing road obstruction.

The task force confiscated the products including vegetables and other products because it causes traffic congestion along the road. The vendors already knew that it is prohibited to sell in the area but they have no other options.

The street vendors violated the policy just to earn money and feed their families amid the coronavirus pandemic. The vendors are asking for a little bit of consideration from the authorities.

“Mahirap e puhunan yun Malaki na e, sana naman pagbigyan kami total pandemic e pwede namang itabi na lang alam naman naming bawal dito kaya lang wala ng magagawa talaga sagad na,” vendor Philip Palliarca said.

The Task Force Disiplina operation chief Deck Pelembergo explained that they are not against the vendors but the city just prohibit them in certain areas to avoid causing inconvenience along the road.

“Sana wag na natin harangan o wag na natin ipagkait sa tao, hindi tayo tutol sa hanapbuhay hindi tayo tutol sa vendors ang sinasabi lang ang city ay nag-iidentify ng mga areas na bawal latagan. Lahat naman pwede latagan wag lang sa bangketa,” Pelembergo said.
