  BANGSAMORO PEOPLE'S RIGHT TO SELF-DETERMINATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The Bangsamoro, as people with distinct identity and common culture, and with long history of political independence in the same territory they presently occupy, continuously assert their right to freedom and independence as an expression of their right to self-determination.
Bangsamoro is the collective identity of the Islamized people in Mindanao, in the islands of Basilan and Palawan, and the Sulu and Tawi-Tawi archipelago in the south of the Philippines.
Their right over the territory that they call the Bangsamoro homeland is recognized by the Philippine government in the preamble of its agreement with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which states that the GRP and the MILF are "Determined to establish a peaceful environment and normal condition of life in the Bangsamoro homeland" (underline supplied).

Bangsamoro leaders, headed by Sultan Abdul Aziz Guiwan Mastura Kudarat IV of the Sultanate of Magindanaw, meeting in Cotabato City on January 28, 2001 expressed their strong desire to regain the Bangsamoro independence.

In pursuing that right to self-determination the Bangsamoro people are opting, as manifested both by the liberation movements and the civil society, for the restoration of their freedom and independence that they enjoyed for more than six centuries.
The military suppression of the legitimate struggle of the Bangsamoro people resulted to the off and on war that caused tens of thousands of death tolls, displacement of millions of people (hundreds of thousands are still in the neighboring Malaysian state of Sabah), and destruction of properties worth billions of dollars.
To address the political issue of the problem without resorting to war is to give the Bangsamoro people a chance to choose their political status with respect to their relation to the Philippine government through a referendum.

 Interview with MILF Leader Sheikh Salamat Hashim
The MILF is the vanguard of the Islamic movement in the Bangsamoro homeland in Mindanao and the neighbouring islands.
The Bangsamoro territory, which is the ancestral homeland of the Bangsamoro Muslims, was illegally and immorally annexed when the United States of America granted the Philippines independence in July 4, 1946.
The Bangsamoro Muslims are the native inhabitants of the islands of Mindanao, Basilan Sulu and Palawan.

 Four centuries of jihad underpinning the Bangsamoro Muslims' struggle for freedom   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
For another 50 years, the Bangsamoro Muslims fiercely resisted US rule, even though their antiquated weapons - the Malay kris, and flintlock rifles and obsolete canons captured from the Spaniards - were no match for the machine-guns and artillery of the Americans.
Thus it was that the Bangsamoro people and their homeland were handed over to the Filipinos, who had inherited the intense psychological, cultural and religious enmity for Muslims of their erstwhile Spanish masters.
The devastation of the Bangsamoro homeland was staggering.

It was this well-organized administrative and political system that enabled the Bangsamoro people to survive the military campaign against them by Western colonial powers for several centuries, and to preserve their identity.
The resistance of the Bangsamoro governments was not as fierce as during the Moro-Spanish wars, but organized attacks against American forces reinforced what remained of the sultanates' military power.
International Conventions and Agreements The Bangsamoro government shall assume the obligations and enjoy the rights arising out of international conventions to which the Philippines is a signatory, in accordance with the rules of international law.

These are the struggle for self-determination of the Bangsamoro people as articulated by the Bangsamoro secessionist groups; of the Lumad’s assertion to a rightful ancestral domain and identity within the region; and of the need of the country to move forward and make southern Philippines a land of peace and prosperity.
One Bangsamoro datu said in a meeting in Zamboanga that when it comes to union with Filipino people, although he is already old, he would still fight to oppose such a plan (Gowing, 1977,pp.151-152).
The Bangsamoro Secessionist Movement The Bangsamoro’s resentment over the loss of their political sovereignty, ancestral land and economic resources were expressed occasionally from 1914 to 1940 in minor incidents(Gowing, 1979,pp.164-198).In the 1960’s these minor incidents were transformed into systematic opposition.

The war inflicted untold hardship on the Bangsamoro Muslims, who were subjected to persecution and genocide as the Spaniards attempted to eliminate the Islamic faith, just as they had in Spain.
Although the MNLF was a strange mix of Islam and Moro nationalism, the Bangsamoro Muslims rallied under its revolutionary banner and fought the Philippine establishment as a unified force.

The Bangsamoro realizes its position as an ethnic group of predominantly Muslim population who is asserting its right to self-determination from a nation-state--the Republic of the Philippines-whose government openly supports U.S. foreign policies that is racist and discriminatory.

The state refuses to recognise the political and socio-cultural identity of the Bangsamoro.
To date, the thirteen ethnolinguistic minority groups which compose the Bangsamoro are being referred to collectively in the Philippine legal parlance as “sector of Muslim Filipinos”.
This is a deliberate attempt at psycho-socially subjugating the Bangsamoro, that is, on the part of the state, to weaken the their claim for identity as a matter of political, economic and social rights thereby reducing their cause to a mere case of “religious or cultural alienation”.

The fact that the Bangsamoro homeland and people are parts of dunia Melayu, and they have common religion and shared many cultural practices with the Muslims in the region explains this close ties.

 The Manila Times Internet Edition | SPECIAL REPORT > Bangsamoro people’s political options
During the forum it became clear that the premise of the discussion from the Moro viewpoint is that the ultimate aspiration of the Moro nation—the Bangsamoro—is to become, or to form, an independent state.
Meanwhile, as most of the forum participants agreed that that ultimate objective is to be won through peaceful means and with the cooperation of the other Filipinos and the international community, the discussion centered on realistic political structures that the Moros can have now and in the coming years within the Philippine Republic.
Lingga, however, stressed that the ultimate aspiration of the Bangsamoro people was independence—as signified by historic struggle, and that all the options are steps toward the realization of that goal.

Chairman Misuari is the recognized leader and representative of the Bangsamoro people in the 1996 Final Peace Agreement and his continued detention imperils the full and genuine implementation of the Peace Accord.
Contrary to the seeming complacency and apathy of the Bangsamoro masses, the resentment created by the unjustified sacrifice of their leader without having had the chance to fully implement the peace agreement is growing and finding sympathy, support and strength.
It is imperative that the Bangsamoro have a unified perspective, analysis and program of action on the issues confronting them and the alternatives open to them for them to truly exercise their right to self-determination.

 Securing Peace in Mindanao: Resolving the Roots of Conflict
Some of the panel speakers raised the importance of having an adequate understanding of what constitutes the Bangsamoro identity in order to contextualize the dynamics of political mobilization among the different political groups, as well as assess how development programs have had a differential impact among these groups.
Local control of resources by the Bangsamoro is critical to sustainable peace, which cannot be arrived at by simply the infusion of aid money.
Critical issues such as human rights of the Bangsamoro and development in the region are not assumed to automatically or immediately resonate with the priorities of donor nations like the U.S. or the European Community.

Lingga: The political status of the Bangsamoro people is not in the schedule of discussion between the MILF and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP).
The Bangsamoro people will be asked what political status they want: to be free and independent; to be federated to the Philippine Republic; to be federated to the United States; to be federated with any of the Muslim country in the region; or to maintain the status quo.

In more contemporary times, the Bangsamoro are still recovering from the magnitude of damage from the all-out war of the past Estrada administration in 2000 where close to a million civilians have become internal refugees in their own lands.
Chairman, the war policy of the Philippine government has deprived the Bangsamoro people not only of the opportunity for development but has denied them the right to exist which is protected in the UN Conventions on Civil and Political Rights as well as the International Covenant on the End to Racism and Discrimination.

We, leaders and representatives of Bangsamoro people's and non-government organizations, strongly condemn the deployment of US military forces in Mindanao and other regions of the country.
We call on our Bangsamoro brothers to unite in the face of yet another assault by the imperialist US reminiscent of their encroachment of our freedom and way of life unwaveringly defended for centuries by our ancestors.
We demand that the United States withdraw its troops in the Philippines and cease from their political and economic intervention, and military aggression which, apart from condemning billions of people across the world to violence, hunger and injustice, has bred the same extremist reactions.

In fact it was the existence of the well-organized administrative and political systems that the Bangsamoro people managed to survive the military campaign against them by Western colonial powers for several centuries and preserve their identity as a political and social entity.
Although the MILF is a strong force as the MNLF and it is dominant in Bangsamoro areas in mainland Mindanao the government confined the negotiations with the MNLF until the peace accord was signed in 1996.
The participation of the Bangsamoro people is not only essential but their collective will should be the basis of authority of their representative body and the last word in the settlement of the problem.

With the complexities of the issues surrounding this “spiral of intolerance” that has sucked the Moros, the Philippine government, and the mainstream Filipinos into a never-ending struggle, indeed, the original causes of the conflict are lost in a situation that has spiralled out of control.
I would like to commend, however, the Philippine government for its attempts to find solutions to the Bangsamoro issue, such as the 1996 peace agreement inked between the Moro National Liberation Front and the Government of the Philippines and the peace process which is now going on with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
The order has been seen by the Filipino Muslim minority as sending the wrong message to the Bangsamoro, 99 percent of whom are ordinary civilians struggling to eke out a “normal” life in the midst of conflict and are not engaged in any “terroristic” activity or in the conflict itself as combatants.

He said the MILF was also proposing to government negotiators that the Muslims be given an option to choose in a referendum whether they wanted Mindanao to be an independent state or not.
The report also quoted Silvestre C. Afable, government chief negotiator, in a remark he allegedly made during last year's MILF plenum in Maguindanao province, that the Arroyo administration is ready to give the Muslims their homeland.
He said it was too early to anticipate the outcome of the MILF peace talks, when asked to comment on the proposed shared Bangsamoro government.
