Solidarity Support for Lagonglong Evacuees


THANK YOU for responding to the call for solidarity! Lumad evacuees from Lagonglong, Misamis Oriental staying at the Provincial Capitol Grounds of Misamis Oriental finally went home on 24 June 2016. They have successfully demanded the pull out of military troops from their communities in a dialogue with the concerned state security forces facilitated by the provincial government on June 23.

On June 17, the ‘Higala sa Lumad’ Network, in behalf of the concerned indigenous community, asked for support for their plight. Below are the statements of support from various local and international networks forwarded to various stakeholders, and were read during the Lumad camp out.

Thank you to Bishop Broderick Pabillo, Auxilliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Manila, and to many others who also expressed support to the evacuees.

Maraming, maraming salamat!
