Religious condemn B’laan killings

“Who has appointed you ruler and judge over us…?” (Exodus 2:14)
We, the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP), condemn the treacherous killing of members of the family of a B’laan leader who is opposed to the operations of Sagittarius Mines Inc. (SMI) inside the tribe’s ancestral domain. Three members of his family died while the youngest daughter was wounded.
