Peace Parade

11aleosanpeaceparadeOfficials and Islamic school students of Barangays Dunguan in Aleosan town and Langayen in Pikit town, both in North Cotabato, hold a parade on Dec. 11 to seal a peace pact between their two communities locked in rido (clan feud) for 30 years. The Ma’ahad (Islamic high school) built at the boundary of the two communities in May this year became a marker of peace and reminder of their peace pact, which they hope to strengthen with a kanduli (feast) on Sunday (Dec. 13).
