Mayor Isko Moreno said that the latest project of Manila Tourism and Cultural Affairs Bureau (MTCAB) Cine Kartilya is almost the same with the free cinema that he was visited every week during his younger years.

During his weekly capital report, Moreno said that during the Marcos administration, there’s also a free cinema every Sunday in Luneta Park.

“Noong araw noong bata ako pagka linggo dinadala ako ng tatay ko, kinakarga ako sa balikat sumula Tondo maglalakad kami hanggang Delpan bridge papuntang Luneta,” Moreno said.

“Kasi pag linggo noong araw, mayroong pa sine ang gobyerno noong pamahalaan ni dating Pangulong Marcos, doon kami lahat sa luneta, yung yung sinasabi namin sa inyo na gumugulong gulong sa damuhan, may malaking malaking sine, libre,” he added.

“Kasi ito personal experience ko, itanong ninyo sa nanay niyo, sa lola ninyo…”

In another topic of his capital report, Moreno told the people of Baseco Compound that he also experienced being an illegal settler in Tondo, but his life during those time are different than the present.

According to him, it’s fine to live in a poor community as long as the government is trying to take care of their security.

“Hindi na baling mahirap ang komunidad, squatter din ako… mabuhay street, pagtanong ninyo sa Tondo kung saan yung mabuhay street… kami ang original sa Parola noong wala pang ICTSI, kami ang mga unang squatter sa likod ng San Miguel plant sa may Parola Tondo,” Moreno said.

“Kaya alam ko po ang pakiramdam ng pagiging isang squatter, alam ko po ang pakiramdam na kahit na mahirap kami ay panatag naman kami dahil ang gobyerno ay hindi kami tinatalikuran, ang gobyerno ay pinangangalagaan kami sa aming kapanatagan ng aming buhay squatter,” he added.

Moreno vowed to bring back the law and order in Baseco compound, a place infamous for being the hideout of bad elements.

He said that bad elements only got two choices, leave Manila or stop their bad activities.
