GYPSIES IN THE CITY

They are gypsies from Samal Island selling pearl stuff knocking motorists’ window on a red light. I see it a dangerous enterprise since they bring along with them little children for added sympathy to buy their stuff.

The city government has programs for them but others really can’t help it but wander on the streets and solicit easy cash from motorists.

  4. I've remembered when I was in Cebu and saw someone being reprimanded by an officer for giving them coins. They have the anti-mendicancy act there, that is to eliminate street campers and the likes.
