Message of Center for Peace Education – Miriam College on the 2nd Anniversary of the Signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB)
The peace process in Mindanao may have stalled with the non-passage of the BBL but let us all remember that the CAB, which anniversary we commemorate this month, already reflects the principles for the establishment of an autonomous political entity for the Bangsamoro, recognizing the justness and legitimacy of their aspiration for greater autonomy.
The signing of the CAB has already helped change the narrative of the Bangsamoro from that of pain and suffering to that of hope for a new era where war, bombing, and displacement are no more. Let us not quash this hope for a better future.
Honor the CAB and all that it stands for!
