10,000 Squatters Face Bleak Future

MONROVIA — More than 10,000 squatters of the Airfield Community may not know where to go when the Government’s ultimatum asking them to vacate the area expires next week.
They have been squatting on a vast stretch of land owned by the Liberia Civil Aviation Authority (LCAA), a government agency that oversees domestic flights at the James Spring Field in Sinkor.
The agency has given the community dwellers, including women and children, up to October 1, 2009, to vacate or be removed. But the residents say they have not found a suitable place to live, nor has the Government given them any clear idea as to where to relocate.
An LCAA notice board erected at the main entrance of the community says a project aimed at fencing the entire field is expected to begin shortly in several phases.
