MILF: Inclusion of Mindanao peoples’ history to address biases pushed

Posted to the MILF Website (Nov 4): Inclusion of Mindanao peoples’ history to address biases pushed

Conference delegates participating in a workshop on peace and security mulled the inclusion of Mindanao people’s history in education in order to address biases particularly towards to Muslims.

NGO and CSO representatives from different regions of the country pooled at San Pedro Poveda College in Metro Manila on October 28-29, 2015 to attend the conference dubbed as Building Pathways: Eradicating Poverty and Inequalities.

The workshop participants acknowledged the effectivity of using customary practices and laws to resolve local conflicts and the essence of providing an avenue for dialogue among the peoples of different faiths and cultures in creating a peaceful atmosphere.

They also suggested the propagation of the Culture of Peace as an initiative to persuade warring parties to refrain from using arms to resolve their feuds.

The participants further recommended outsourcing and using local resources in order to continue the work on the dividends of peace.

They realized that peace is a fruit of tedious process that requires commitment, hard work, patience, passion and shared vision.

In his message, Bishop Socrates Villegas urged the citizens to look into the situation of the poor and try to extend help.

The delegates agreed to continue working and form alliances among stakeholders in their quest to help eradicate poverty in the country.
