BAYAN MUNA CONDEMNS JOLO BOMBING
Bayan Muna Chairman Neri Colmenares and Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate condemned the Jolo bombing.
“We strongly condemn the Sunday morning twin bombings of the Mt. Carmel Catholic Cathedral in Jolo, Sulu that senselessly claimed the lives of many and wounded several other churchgoers.
We commiserate with the families of the victims and we join their call for justice and for the perpetrators to be made accountable for these clear acts of terrorism.
While the pursuit for justice must be made in earnest, the people, particularly in Mindanao, must be on guard against undemocratic forces that may use this wicked act to fuel further conflicts and militarization in Mindanao. We call on the people to be even more vigilant and frustrate moves aimed at using this dastardly incident to create unfounded prejudice among the residents.###
