SOME residents evicted from the illegal rooftop homes in Tsuen Wan began sleeping on the streets in their old neighbourhood last night after giving up their protest outside the Central Government Offices. About 10 people from six families said they had failed to find a shelter after their houses were demolished on Monday. The others were staying at the homes of friends. The protesters, who staged an overnight sit-in outside the Central offices on Monday night, marched on Government House yesterday morning to submit a petition. They also petitioned the Executive and Legislative councils. No more households registered with the Housing Authority for rehousing in temporary housing estates yesterday. Only nine of the 24 households have registered. 'We should not register with the authority for temporary housing. 'We should be given a permanent flat, not a temporary one,' said Jessie Lai, 23, who climbed on to the top of a roof hut on Cheuk Ming building during Monday's clearance. She was not sure where she could stay: 'I, my sister and my mother are staying at a social worker's room. But we cannot stay there long. It's not our home.' The Tsuen Wan Ecumenical Social Service Centre has also become a 'store room' for the vacated residents. Utensils, electrical appliances and other daily necessities are piling up in every corner of the centre.
