STATEMENT ON THE IMMEDIATE PASSAGE OF THE ENHANCED BANGSAMORO BASIC LAW (BBL)
The Blue Bridge firmly and earnestly supports the immediate passage of the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) with the belief on its unequivocal aspiration of harboring peace on our beloved land of Mindanao. The publication strongly believes that with the full implementation of its signed agreements, the long standing distress of conflicts and violent extremism suffered by the innocent will be addressed and given resolution.
As peace advocates, we believe that the agreement will correct the history of the islands, stained by injustices. We place our faith on the legislators to urgently pass the law to further assemble the foundation of lasting peace that for decades, have constrained the Mindanaons to conflict and inequity.
We urge the student community of Ateneo de Davao University Senior High School to elevate the works for peace both in offline and online platforms. It is time to liberate the Land of Promise from years of terror brought by divisiveness.
We stand with our brothers and sisters who plead for no more wars and bullets. There is no better time to let social justice prevail than now.
