BangsaMoro Substate Online Petition

One of the proposals that is hoped to once and for all address the peace and development crisis Mindanao is facing in view of the economic and political issues of the Moro people or Bangsamoro, is the establishment of a Bangsamoro Substate.

This site runs a online campaign that aims to get 1 million signatures by yearend. In addition, it sheds light on the proposal with its frequently asked questions (FAQs) that you can browse.There are also related materials that you can download from the site.

I believe this proposal really deserves support from every peace-loving Filipino and Mindanaoan. Truth is there is no way that we allow armed conflict to continue at the expense of everyone especially the Moro people who have the right to live peacefully and self-determination. The armed conflict has cost so much in terms of properties and economic bases of the people in some parts of Mindanao and countless lives wasted in the process.

The war has to end by all means. And this one is perhaps one new way to resolve the problem. Let there be long and lasting peace and development in Mindanao with the BangsaMoro Substate! 

Let us support the signature campaign!
