March 6 — Commemorating the 40th day since the Mamasapano encounter in Maguindanao, various organizations and representatives from different indigenous tribes from Mindanao took part in the National Day Towards Healing for Justice, Unity & Peace.

The groups held booths, performances, and painting areas at the Quezon Memorial Circle to manifest their desire for “All-Out Peace”, especially since calls for war are still mounting after the tragic incident between the PNP-SAF and Moro fighters on January 25. The Aquino administration is currently launching offensives against the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF), causing over 40,000 people to flee from their homes.
