BANGSA reclaims Corregidor!

Last March 18, 2008, on the occasion of the 40th year of the Jabidah Massacre, members of the Bangsamoro National Solidarity Movement (BANGSA) trooped to Corregidor Island to become part of a historic event, that of the unveiling of the first ever marker commemorating Jabidah Massacre on the spot where it happened 40 years ago on Corregidor Island.

What made this event truly historic was that, joining Rep. Mujiv Hataman in unveiling the marker was Mr. Jibin Arula, the lone survivor of the Massacre who lived to tell the world what happened on Corregidor Island that fateful day of March 18, 1968.

BANGSA mobilized members coming from its South Metro TOC (Territorial Organizing Committee) , North-Central TOC and the BANGSA MR-Secretariat. BANGSA Secretariat encouraged its members and prospects to participate in this once in a lifetime event for the purpose of consolidating its ranks. BANGSA reiterates its belief that the Jabidah Massacre became the decisive turning point in the contemporary struggle of the Bangsamoro for national self-determination and upon this cause, BANGSA is organized.

The Corregidor trip was one consolidating experience for all BANGSA members and its new recruits. BANGSA is now looking for the possibility of making an annual journey to Corregidor as part of its organizational undertaking.

Looking back, the late Dictator Marcos wanted to reclaim Sabah, being historically part of the Bangsamoro territory, but failed, but at the expense of the lives of more than a dozen of Moro youth massacred on Corregidor. 40 years after, BANGSA and the Moro youth now reclaim Corregidor – to remind the world that the Bangsamoro’s struggle for Justice and Peace continues.

    Ang galing ng Bangsa, sa wakas nakapunta rin ang mga magigiting na mga makabayang moro sa isla ng corrigedor!!!! Ang corrigedor ay isang makasaysayang lugar ng Pilipinas partikular sa mga Moro, dito naganap ang karumaldumal na massacre ng mga kabataang moro na sinanay upang sakupin ang Sabah… ngunit pumalag at di pumayag ang mga nasabing kabataang moro kung kaya nag sanhi ito sa kanilang kamatayan… Dito umusbong muli ang pag angat ng pampulitikang kamulatan ng mamamayang moro upang labanan ang marahas at mapagsamantalang polisya ng estado sa moro… hanggang sa kasalukuyan ay patuloy na nakikibaka ang mamamayang moro para wakasan ang pagsasamantala at pag-igting pa ng pakikibaka para sa sariling pagpapasya ng mamamayang moro…

    Mabuhay ang pakikibaka ng mamamayang moro para sa sariling pagpapasya!!!!

    Mangahas Makibaka!!!
    Mangahas Magtagumpay !!!

    Very interested that “Jabidah” now has a physical origin. I often wondered where it occurred, in the physical sense. I am pleased that it is now rooted to a bunker, and to the hospital.

    What happens often needs the immediate politics of the day expunged from it before it can be considered “history”. Concentrate upon every name written on the walls of the hospital, and put their stories – their lives – into the record.
