An estimated 30,ooo Mranaos from all over Lanao marched to the capital, Marawi City yesterday 22 November to denounce President Aquino’s apparent reluctance to resume the peace talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
The rallyists gave their go signal for the MILF to revert to Independence as the goal, and not mere autonomy.
The Moro show of force was matched by the military, who rolled its tanks and armored vehicles into the streets of Marawi. This was the first time the military paraded its military might in Marawi City since Pres. Estrada’s “all-out war” in 2000.
