Respite from War

RESPITE FROM WAR.  Moro women harvest rice in the conflict-affected village of Liong in Datu Piang, Maguindanao on October 24. It has been a year since they last evacuated to the poblacion to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.  The signing of the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro has given them hope their planting season won’t be disrupted by war again and that they can look forward to more bountiful harvests.  MindaNews photo by Ruby Thursday More
