Advocates say peace is possible in Mindanao

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/1 Nov) — There is a broader support for peace
in Mindanao, said a group of grassroots organizations who went on a
peace mission to Manila last week.

The group went to Manila and met with Malacañang officials, diplomats,
and the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) in the
aftermath of an impasse in the peace process between the government
and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

“We consider the mission a success in terms of broadening our support
for the peace talks and symbolically asserting the grassroots voices
in the whole discourse of peace and war in Mindanao,” the group said
it its statement.

The Mindanao Peoples Caucus (MPC) mission have returned “with renewed
confidence and hope that peace is indeed possible,” the group said
Tuesday, the day set as deadline for the government to submit its
proposal on territory, the last of four strands in the ancestral
domain agenda, that caused the impasse in the peace talks. Read full story here.
