In 2010, the residents of Corazon de Jesus were again demolished from their homes to give way to the construction of a new, lavish city hall of San Juan City. For three decades, the public land has changed ownership between the people and the local government, depending on who is on the seat of power in the national government. Asserting their right to home, life and in pursuit of dignity, the people put up their barricade against the demolition in January 2011.

The historic Pinaglabanan (Battlefield), where the first skirmish of the 1896 Philippine Revolution against the Spanish colonizers took place, stands witness to a new, continuing battle.
