Members of Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC) and Progresibong Alyansa ng Tagatangkilik ng Tubig sa Kamaynilaan (PATTAK) brought holiday gift packages and Christmas lanterns as symbols of their protest against Manila Water Company Inc.’s proposal to increase rates by P14/cu. m. starting January 1, 2008.

“This has always been the concessionaires’ gift to us – business driven interests, thus leading to unabated rate increases. Their ambitious service projections, and other contentious areas within their rate proposal, should not be passed on to consumers, regardless of the holiday season,” said FDC campaigner Obet Belandres.

On December 4, 2007, FDC submitted a nine-page position paper to Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage Services- Regulatory Office (MWSS-RO), stressing that the proposed rate hike is unjust and should not be imposed upon the consumers of the Metro Manila East Zone. more
