P.L.E.A.S.E. Peace - PRRD's Promised Legacy in Ending Armed Struggles with Enduring Peace
Join Ateneo de Davao University Community Engagement and Advocacy Council (AdDU-UCEAC) and the Initiatives for International Dialogue (IID) in cooperation with GPPAC for an online conversation.
In the advent of Philippine President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s last State of the Nation Address (SONA) on July 26, 2021, the organisers recall one of his key promises, after having been elected as the first Mindanawon President. He pledged a legacy of lasting peace, especially in Mindanao. While strides were gained in the Bangsamoro peace process, its parallel development involving the National Democratic Front (NDFP) has been stalled and its resumption is still uncertain. The organisers believe that a genuine legacy of enduring peace necessitates the reopening of the talks and eventual political settlement of the GRP-NDFP peace talks as well.
