Once Again No Peace in Mindanao
AbstractPeace seemed to be only a small step away when the government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) announced that a compromise on the ancestral domain issue had been reached and a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) was to be signed in early August. However, opposition to the deal has succeeded in blocking this path for the time being. The Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order which effectively prohibited the government from signing the Memorandum of Agreement. In the wake of this decision, violence exploded anew in various regions of Mindanao and the government in turn distanced itself from the MoA, which had already been initialed by its representative. This text recapitulates the dynamics driving the escalation of recent weeks, looks for the underlying causes of this dramatic escalation, and evaluates how much of the impetus for peace has survived the most recent events.
