On September 1985, Lake Sebu, one of the most important watershed areas in the country, was proclaimed as a protected landscape. Lake Sebu is home to a number of indigenous peoples including the T’boli, known for their intricate weaving and exquisite brassware, who have lived in Lake Sebu for centuries.
In a dialogue held last May 28, days after the Solidarity Caravan, the barangay captain of the said area expressed disapproval over the activities held MinHRAC and its legal assistance team, saying that the residents should have approached him instead. He also noted how the names of the suspect were not mentioned the first time residents brought their case to him, and how the Bañagados were only implicated during MinHRAC’s intial interviews with residents held days after the incident.
Since then, he has lived with intimidation and harassment from the Bañagados, which eventually led to the shooting and death of his half-brother, Tinis. However, due to lack of corroborating evidence, no case has been filed to make the Bañagados accountable.
Pictures of the Lake Sebu Solidarity Caravan can be seen at the MinHRAC facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.432045140148375.102002.150412344978324&type=3

اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِنِي فِيمَنْ هَدَيْت
وَعَافِنِي فِيِمَنْ عَافَيْتَ
وَتَوَلَّنِي فِمَنْ تَوَلَّيْتَ
وَبَارِكْ لِي فِيمَا أعْطَيْتَ
وَقِنِي شَرَّ مَا قَضَيْتَ
فَإنَّكَ تَقْضِي وَلا يُقْضَى عَلَيْكَ
إنَّهُ لا يَذِلُّ مَنْ وَالَيْتَ
وَلا يَعِزُّ مَنْ عَادَيْت
تَبَارَكْتَ رَبَّنَا وَ تَعَالَيْت

Due to the alleged implication of a Maguindanaon who is the Mundo’s business partner, there has been tension between residents belonging to the two ethnic groups in the area. However with the intervention of the tribal leaders, the case has been reported to MinHRAC which then assisted them in engaging each other through a peace dialogue.
Inquiries about the deaths due to past and resolved conflicts made separately with the Teduray and Maguindanaon communities is said to have caused tension between the two groups, now believed to be the reason behind aggression. The inquiries provided the rationale for TRIPAD to form a Peace Council which is thought to be redundant with an already existing tribal council which is a part of their traditional justice system.
note: more photos on the Peace Dialogue can be found in our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/MinHRAC.Official
