An appeal to normalize the situation in Midsayap

The civil society has appealed for normalcy in the situation in Midsayap, North Cotabato where clashes between government forces and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front on March 6-7 spurred a near collapse of the ceasefire agreement. Read the appeal here.

The recent violations of the truce blew an upset to the Joint ceasefire committees, one of salient ceasefire mechanisms. Read the story here.

The usual victims of these of course are not just ordinary civilians but the children of the communities affected by the fightings. Read about their situation in the area here.

Where will this bring the peace process?

Gladly both the government (here) and the MILF (here) have expressed commitment to push through with the peace process – against all odds.
