After peace milestone, a long process of implementation

We sincerely hope the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) will move forward, and not stay on paper only. We also hope that the signatories, especially those representing the Bangsamoro, are sincere in their desire to make the CAB work, for it is a milestone for peace.

‘Alarming’ provision in Bangsamoro peace deal

We will be the last to spoil the euphoria over prospects of peace in Mindanao. But there is still one more concern about the Bangsamoro peace agreement that in our view needs attention. We cannot erase it from our minds because it is the most alarming.

A hand of friendship for peace

The refusal of the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army (CPP/NPA) to resume the peace talks with the government may only be a bluff. In the past, they expressed their willingness to do so, but on condition that CPP members who were also peace consultants be released, even those with criminal cases pending in [...]

Military option no solution

What’s happening now in Zamboanga City is the consequence of the past mishandling of peace agreements. The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro (FAB) and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) review of the 1996 Final Peace Agreement (FPA) with the national government are now a subject of controversy of the Tripartite (Organization of Islamic Cooperation [OIC]-Philippine Government [GPH]-MNLF) talks. A look at what these peace processes had created is putting all parties concerned in a dilemma, if not in a state of confusion.

Missed deadlines

Even in ordinary, everyday life, missed deadlines are no trifling matter. When something is not done or delivered or paid for at the agreed-upon time, there are consequences. A student who turns in a late assignment runs the risk of a failing grade. A bounced check can land its issuer in court for estafa. A business supplier unable to produce the required goods under contract faces legal liabilities. And employees habitually tardy at completing their tasks may find themselves out of work sooner or later.

A breakthrough

We do not know how many people were able to view President Benigno Aquino III’s dramatic Sunday afternoon announcement of the peace breakthrough, but there was one set of viewers in particular who watched the broadcast with the keenest attention: The peace negotiators of the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, gathered in one [...]

Heaven help us


The glowing praises are richly deserved. After a protracted internecine war, one that has brought untold suffering on Muslim Mindanao, there’s real hope the war may finally end. Over the weekend, Aquino announced an agreement to forge a Bangsamoro state. “The ARMM (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao) is a failed experiment,” he said. “Many of [...]
