Moro, lumad people’s plea: ‘Libro hindi bala’


As this year’s Lakbayan ng Pambansang Minorya kicks off today, delegates from Northern Luzon met with Moro and lumad people of Mindanao at the Bonifacio Shrine in Manila.

Around 3000 “lakbayani” from different minority groups have gathered to appeal for the recognition of their rights and demilitarization of their schools and communities.

The delegates will march to the University of the Philippines Diliman later in the day.

Earlier, Lakbayan 2017 delegates met with supporters from Manila Science High School, Philippine General Hospital, Philippine Independent Church and Philippine Normal University-Manila.
