AMIN Joins Mindanao Week of Peace 2012 Celebrations

by Anak Mindanao (AMIN) Party List Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012 at 7:59 PM

PHILIPPINES: Anak Mindanao (AMIN) Party List members joined the Solidarity-Cultural Walk for Peace from Bantayog ng mga Bayani to the Quezon City Memorial Circle this morning (December 5, 2012) for the culmination ceremony of this year’s Mindanao Week of Peace celebration.

The said event was organized by Mindanao Solidarity Network (MSN), in which AMIN is an active group member among other civil society organizations in partnership with the local government of Quezon City. This year’s theme is “Kapayapaan Atin Ito, Magkaisa Tayo Para sa Kapayapaan sa Mindanao,” focusing more on the recent and significant signing of the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro.

The Mindanao Week of Peace is actually an annual weeklong celebration of solidarity actions for peace through series of peace-building activities with the public. It was in 2010 when the local government of Quezon City passed an ordinance declaring the last week of November of every year as the Mindanao week of peace celebration in Quezon City and co-organized various activities for the celebration. The celebration seeks to mainstream the Mindanao issue in the Nation Capital Region where the decision, policy and opinion-makers reside.

Pahayag ng Anak Mindanao (AMIN) Partylist Hinggil sa Framework Agreement on the BangsaMoro

Lubos na ikinagagalak ng Anak Mindanao (AMIN) Partylist ang inabot na pagbalangkas sa Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro na pinanday ng Gobyerno ng Pilipinas (GPH) at ng Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). Nagbibigay pugay ang Anak Mindanao Partylist sa Moro Islamic Liberation Front, sa Gobyerno ng Pilipinas at sa lahat ng mga organisasyon, institusyon at indibidwal na may iisang mithiin at sama-samang kumilos para makamit ito para sa kapayapaan ng Mindanao.

Naniniwala ang AMIN partylist na sa pamamagitan ng Framework Agreement naipupuwesto na sa tamang direksyon ang usapang pangkapayapaan, at nagbibigay ito ng bagong sigla at pag-asa sa mamamayan. Isang malaking hakbang ito sa pagkakaintindihan upang maging ganap ang kapayapaan sa Mindanao.

Ngayong meron nang malinaw na patutunguhan ang usapang pangkapayapaan, magpunyagi tayo’t magkusa upang masiguro na mailalatag sa matibay na pundasyon ang bagong porma ng pamamahala para sa Bangsamoro. Naniniwala ang Anak Mindanao Partylist na tanging ang demokratikong partisipasyon ng mamamayan at ang patuloy na pagkukusa para sa reporma ang susi sa kaganapan ng isang makabuluhang kapayapaan. Linangin natin ang reporma at kamtin ang kapayapaan.

Ganunpaman ang paunang tagumpay na ito ay hindi dapat magbigay sa atin ng puwang na maging kampante. Maging mulat at mapagbantay tayo sa mga pwersa na nagnanais bulabugin ang usapang pang-kapayapaan. Biguin natin ang lahat ng tangkang wasakin ang pagkakaisa ng mamamayan para sa kapayapaan. Kasama ang iba pang mga organisasyon, ating…

Salubungin ang BANGSAMORO!
Isulong ang Reporma para sa Kapayapaan.

Peace and justice advocates reaffirm support for -Framework Agreement-

by Mindanao Solidarity Network (MSN) Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012 at 4:53 PM

FURTHER inspired by the recent signing of the Bangsamoro Framework Agreement between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, peace and justice activists based in Metro Manila have reaffirmed their support for the peace initiative during the closing today of the annual Mindanao Week of Peace (MWP).

Members of different civil society organizations, as well as representatives from the Quezon City Hall and some government agencies, participated in the Cultural Solidarity Walk from the Bantayog ng mga Bayani to the Quezon Memorial Circle that culminated the weeklong festivities that started on Nov. 28.

The Mindanao Solidarity Network (MSN), co-organizer of MWP along with the Quezon City government, expressed its optimism on the prospects of the “framework agreement” despite of the long and complex process that still needs to be done in this roadmap.

Liza Ugay, MSN spokesperson, explained that the historic signing of the “framework” in Malacañang last Oct. 15 was only one of the series of steps to reach a final peace accord, which the Aquino administration is reportedly hoping to finish by 2016, when Aquino’s six-year term ends.

MSN clarified that the peace panel has yet to finalize details, especially on power-sharing and wealth-sharing between the future Bangsamoro administration and the Philippine government.

President Aquino also has to name a reliable and acceptable replacement for Marvic Leonen, the erstwhile chief government peace negotiator, who was recently appointed to the Supreme Court.

Likewise, Aquino will issue an Executive Order establishing the 15-member Transition Commission – eight chosen by the MILF and seven selected by the government – that will draft the Bangsamoro Basic Law, which will be sent to Congress for deliberations and approval as well as its signing by Aquino. A plebiscite and later an election for the Bangsamoro officials will then be held in the proposed Bangsamoro territory – a new entity that will replace the current Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

“This peace roadmap obviously is lengthy and complicated, but it is worth trying to end the senseless killings and the widespread poverty and misery of the majority in Mindanao, especially the masses, whether they’re Muslims, Lumads and Christians,” Herbert Demos, of the Socsksargen Workers Network-Alliance of Progressive Labor (SWN-APL), said. Socsksargen is South Cotobato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, and Gen. Santos City.

MSN member organizations include Anak-Mindanao (AMIN), APL, Balay Rehabilitation Center, Binhi ng Kapayapaan, Center for Peace Education (CPE)-Miriam College, Gaston Zobel-Ortigas Peace Institute (GZOP), Generation Peace (GenPeace), Peacemakers’ Circle, Pinay Kilos (PINK), Pilipina, Young Moro Professionals (YMP), Initiatives for International Dialogue (IID), World March for Peace, and Claret Peace Weavers.
