Maranaos assert their right to peace vs. war in Mindanao

Bobby Timonera based in Iligan City reports for MindaNews that Maranaos call on thge United Nations and the Organization of Islamic Conference to help end war in Mindanao.

In a rally in Marawi City on October 2,  his MindaNews report said that at the end of the month-long Ramadhan, Maranaos there staged a rally right in the heart of the city Thursday morning to call on the United Nations and the Organization of Islamic Conference to intervene to stop the war in Mindanao and for
the government to honor the botched Memorandum of Agreement on the Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD).

With placards and streamers mostly in blue and green, the 1,000 protesters then marched under the mid-morning sun towards the headquarters of the Army’s 103rd Infantry Brigade to hold yet another
rally, ending just before noon. Read full story here.

This is a favorable show of real people power, asserting their right to peace in their homeland.
