WATCH: Butuan street vendors rally vs crackdown

Street vendors staged a rally Monday morning in front of the Butuan City Hall to protest the implementation of an ordinance banning ambulant vending in a bid to clear city’s sidewalks of vendors and obstructions for pedestrians.

Numbering around 300, the protesters, who have been ousted from various locations in the city also accused the clearing team of maltreatment and harassment.

The Butuan City government has recently implemented SP Ordinance No. 5267-2017, which banned and regulated sidewalk and ambulant vending that impede the flow of pedestrians and disturb traffic.
