Yes, it will help because it also considers the 1976 Tripoli agreement signed under martial law, the drafting of 1987 Constitution, and the creation of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao in 1989. It goes on to describe the period of constitutional engagement and more specifically, the "constitutional moment" for resolving the Mindanao question that began in mid-2010. Finally, it analyzes the outcome of the peace talks between the government and the Moro insurgents, along with some of significant the lessons that can be drawn from the experience.

Yes because Peace talks are an important part of the peace process in our country. This is the way in which both sides are looking for acceptable standards where they can make a final and meaningful agreement that will end the armed conflict and bring about a just and lasting peace in our country.

In the past more than four decades and even now, the government (GPh) and the CNN (CPP-NPA-NDF) have continued their armed conflict resulting in many lost lives and livelihoods, causing fear, forced displacement of people living in the affected community and other human rights violations.

I would vote yes to peace talks because this is all people wanted in a country because it can result in improvement and the growth of the country especially, wanted this peace talk to avoid harm to our fellow IP and Moro communities and peace talk also is an initiative that showcases the inspirational stories of people making a positive contribution to peace. and also, the peace talk has a vision which is to expand the space for dialogue about building peace and resolving the conflict here in Mindanao. having peace talks as well can resolve the conflict because they talk and give their stories, ideas, and practical solution to resolve the conflict. As our classmate's said communication is the key to resolve the conflict which is true because how we can resolve the conflict if we didn`t talk about it and plan for a better solution for this conflict

Yes for peace talks because if there isn't any peace talks there shouldn't be any law implemented for IP and Moro - but in reality there is law intended for them. The opposing team said that "peace talk is not effective" but actually the law such as the Bangsamoro Organic Law, Comprehensive Agreement of Bangsamoro, and IPRA are contributing to that peace. How? In a way that, in IPRA, Indigenous people are given land title certificates for their ancestral lands. In Bangsamoro Organi law, it gives the leaders more political and economic powers which promises the people a just and equitable share of the region they settled. Another thing, because the Bangsamoro Organic law is signed by President Aquino, there are actually 40,000 rebels who stopped fighting for ensuring long lasting peace.

Lastly, Peace is not instantly attainable. It is a process that needs patience and effort. Moreover, peace cannot be achieve if only one person works for it. Everyone must work and put an effort for it so there could be a progress on achieving peace.

Yes, I agree that peace talk resolve the conflict of Mindanao since its a way to help them raise their concerns and problems to the public and with that they will be given a concrete solutions to their problems that they faces right now. The opposing team said that "they fight for their rights of IP and Moro and they disagree to peace talk since is not effective" but actually the peace talk is a way of fighting for their rights since they are raising their problems and they are finding solution to their issues, and it is effective because they are able to make law that protect their rights such as the Bangsamoro Organic Law, CAB, and IPRA they are contributing to peace that Moro and IP looking for. The Philippine government places importance and assigns regulations to achieve peace. Furthermore, peace talk can bring development, security, social and economic justice and reconciliation for Indigenous and Moro people. That is why I agree that peace talk can solve the conflict of Mindanao.

I would Yes with the peacetalks because through this we can hear the voice of IP and Moro for their personal issues and not only that also to avoid violence against people who are keep doing violence like the NPA or the new people's army and to help them to find an alternative solution to a problem in terms of politics, poverty, discrimination, education and sustainable goods for them.

Yes, I agree to peace talk that will help resolve the Mindanao conflict. Through individual peace talks, leaders from different sectors and industries share their personal ideas and practical solutions to resolve conflict. However, the opposing team said that "peace talk is still not effective because it is not happening in other countries; how sure are we that it will also be effective in the Philippines?" How sure are they that it was not implemented in the Philippines? In March 2014, the government of the Philippines and the MILF signed a peace agreement, which they call the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro. The agreement ended four decades of conflict and envisioned the establishment of a new self-governing region in Muslim-dominated areas of Western Mindanao, called the Bangsamoro.On the other hand, just to promote peace, we have in our 1987 Phil. Cons. Sec. 5: "The State, subject to the provisions of this Constitution and national development policies,programs, shall protect the rights of indigenous cultural communities to  their ancestral lands to ensure  their economic, social, and  cultural well-being."Lots of negotiations and agreement done by the goverment such as the Hague Joint declaration ,on 24 FEBRUARY 1995 PEACE PROCESS WITH THE CPP/NPA/NDF The Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantee (JASIG).16 MARCH 1998.Therefore,Peace talk becomes one of the most effective way of expanding the space for dialogue to create harmony and construct solutions that will resolve conflicts.

Yes, to PEACE TALK because Through individual Peace Talks, speakers from different sectors and industries share their personal stories, ideas and practical solutions to resolve conflict. The spirit of the Peace Talks is one of collaboration and reinforces that each and every person has a role to play in peace. In a social sense, peace is commonly used to mean a lack of conflict (such as war) and freedom from fear of violence between individuals or groups. and according to The Philippines has been wracked by an insurgency in its Muslim south since the early 1970s. A negotiated settlement at last seemed within reach by 2015. Moros, an umbrella term for thirteen ethno-linguistic groups that practice Islam, make up roughly 5 percent of the population in the predominantly Roman Catholic Philippines.1 They are concentrated in two non-contiguous areas: the central portion of Mindanao, the large island in the country’s far south; and in the Sulu archipelago, which stretches from the western tip of Mindanao to Sabah in eastern Malaysia. Moros began mobilizing against the Philippine state in the late 1960s and launched an armed rebellion in 1972. The first of several peace agreements to grant Moros autonomy was signed in 1976 under martial law. The 1987 constitution envisioned a Moro autonomous region within the unitary republic. The government created this region by fiat in 1989 but it had few powers and remained under Manila’s control.

Peace talk can be a big help in the conflict between Ips and Moros in the Mindanao, it can really bring peace, but their some people who can't accept the solutions and the agreement because of greed, they don't want to adjust or they do not want to eat their pride. Peace can only be obtained by working together and it can't be achieve if the other parties is the only one who want it. Peace takes time and understanding. Also we should eat our pride and step a side for other.

Side: Yes, it will help.

Yes because let's be honest if there will be a peace talk there will be no more rallies that can cause harm for IPs and Moro. it can help more in the conflict and their concerns will be heard and they can discuss more how can they resolve the problem.

Side: Yes, it will help.
1 point

No, because over the years the state has come to recognise the Bangsamoro and Indigenous Peoples struggle for just and lasting peace in Mindanao. Finding peaceful solutions to the causes of the armed conflict in Mindanao is never easy as the toll has affected not just Mindanao but the entire county. Also the root cause is the failure to address the Mindanao peoples legitimate struggle for their right to self-determination, dignity and governance, and is a major challenge to achieving sustainable peace in the region.

Side: No, this will not work.

No. If we say peace talks it literally means peace that will unite to silence the IP's and Moro people but not unity that will give peace to their lives due to there are many grievances that will not be resolved because they have not been given attention, our people (IP's & Moro's) needs an ear to listen to them because they have points they want to convey so that we as citizens can understand their society.

Side: No, this will not work.

- For me it was no because not all IP and Moro has the same perspective, beleifs, and ideas. There are some Ip and Moro who will not agree on what they have talk. Aside from that, I think law is the best way in order for the IP and Moro people to achieved peace because through that way they will have peace and equality to one another.

No, because if peace negotiations are a continuous process, why do the IP and MORO communities still feel uncomfortable? Then why haven't the IP and MORO community received their ancestral lands by now if peace negotiations are genuinely successful?

No, it is because peace talk is not the key for us to communicate, reunited and cannot resolved the struggles issue for IP and Moro people. They said that peace is continues of processing for them to raise the concerns and problems, but how they can justify of continues processing? If as we can see in the news they are still have crime, injustice, violence, and especially for IP people there is no right in order for them to fight for their own, to live better and to survive. Indigenous People is need an ear like for Government in order for them to give a moral support and to raise their concerns for their rights. Therefore, NO TO PEACE TALKS.

For me no because ip’s and Moro are sinking for rights and justice , what’s the point of communication if the government didn’t listen to the voice of our society and especially the indigenous people and Moro communities ( by: Joanna Clarisse M Lenon. bsba MM)

Side: No, this will not work.

No because, not every IP and Moro has the same viewpoint, beliefs, or concepts. Some IP and Moro will not concur with what they have spoken or argued. I believe that using the law or having the law will bring peace between the IP and Moro people and is the best option since it will ensure their equality and harmony with one another. (Joshua Ayala / BSBA FM).

Side: No, this will not work.

No, because, They claimed that peace is still being worked on in order to address their concerns and problems, but how can they justify this? As we can see in the news, there is still crime, injustice, and violence, and there is no right for IP people to fight for their own, to live better, and to survive. Indigenous peoples require an ear, such as that of the government, to provide moral support and to express their concerns about their rights. peace talks are not the key to us communicating, reuniting, and resolving the struggles of the IP and Moro people.

No to peace talk. Suppose that I am one of the members of IP group. Why would we as IP accept peace talk if their is really non-recognition of IP's right. What's the purpose of peace talk if the government don't take action or just pretend deft and blind about the biggest treat "mining", illegal logging, tourism projects, dams, energy projects, oil plantations and national parks while others take advantages & so bias just for their own wealth sake. While some of our IP's suffer from ancestral land dispossession. Yes, it could possibly be a help when it comes to our economic growth but did we realize that it brings damage to the environment, survival issues and others suffer too especially our great ancestors who is nature lover. It would also hurt the IP's heart because some of their sacred sites, burial grounds, cultural beliefs and practices are affected. Truly the impact of mining is "ethnocide" which means, it is a destruction of culture while keeping the people but wounded, physically and emotionally drained. So, it is really right to say, or could we take saying, Yes, but the mining or pagkakalbo ng kagubatan is on going, Tama po ba? We should not only focus on built, build, build program because the right and self-determination of others hurt too both physically and and their inner side. Let's learn to become sensitive and must avoid selfish act forthe good of all.

No, it is since peace conversation isn't the key for us to communicate, rejoined and cannot settled the battles issue for IP and Moro individuals. They said that peace is proceeds of preparing for them to raise the concerns and issues, but how they can legitimize of proceeds processing? If as able to see within the news they are still have wrongdoing, treachery, savagery, and particularly for IP individuals there's no right in arrange for them to battle for their possess, to live superior and to outlive. Innate Individuals is require an ear like for Government in arrange for them to grant a ethical bolster and to raise their concerns for their rights. Subsequently, NO TO PEACE TALKS.

Side: No, this will not work.
