The Coalition for a Citizens’ Constitution (C4CC) joins the nation in grieving for the tragic loss of human lives in the bloody encounter in Mamasapano, Maguindanao last January 25, 2015. We call for justice to be served and firmly demand for an impartial investigation to uncover the truth behind this tragedy.  Furthermore, we challenge all parties to admit accountability where it is found to be due.
Nevertheless, C4CC calls for sobriety and cautions against hasty judgments on the part of every Filipino, as this time of volatile tensions and emotions must not be allowed to be the spark for yet another protracted armed conflict.

The Mindanao Coalition of Development NGO Networks (MINCODE) strongly condemns the shooting incident in Mamapasano in Maguindanao Province in Mindanao that resulted in the death of more than 40 policemen last Sunday, January 25, 2015.

As there is a ceasefire agreement between the MILF and the GPH, we call on the immediate investigation of this unfortunate incident by the Coordinating Committee on the Cessation of Hostilities (CCCH) and the International Monitoring Team (IMT) even as we call on both parties to meet to prevent the escalation of violence.   We extend our sympathies to the families of all those who were killed and we support the calls to seek justice for them.

We share the view of the GPH and the MILF and many peace advocates that this recent incident does not reflect the state of their relationship. We deplore the moves to derail the deliberations in the Senate and the House of Representatives on the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law because of this incident. We denounce in very strong terms the irresponsible calls to suspend the ongoing deliberations in Congress. It is of utmost importance that the BBL is immediately passed to nurture peace, justice and non-violence which are the principles underlying the proposed law.

CSOs Shaping Peace and Resilience

Kasali ka, Sumali ka! Social Development Celebration 2014


More than 200 civil society organization (CSO) leaders convened last December 3-5, 2014 at the annual Kasali Ka, Sumali Ka! Social Development Celebration (SDC) of the Caucus of Development NGO Networks (CODE-NGO) held at the SMX Convention Centre, SM Lanang, Davao City.

Co-hosted by the Mindanao Coalition of Development NGO Networks (MINCODE), the SDC also served as the 18th General Assembly of CODE-NGO's 12 member networks (MNs) which represent more than 2,000 development NGOs, people's organizations, and cooperatives all over the Philippines.

In line with the theme of the celebration, "From South to North and from Bottom Up: CSOs Shaping Peace and Resilience", the SDC focused on the role of CSOs in promoting peace in Mindanao and disaster-preparedness around the country.  The theme illustrates that CODE-NGO’s work as a national coalition of CSOs are grounded on and arising from the initiatives and lessons of its members at the local levels. Its focus on the twin issues of peace and resilience are timely, now that the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) has been signed and the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is being deliberated upon in Congress, and it has been a year after typhoon Yolanda, when lessons should have informed and should be informing Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) efforts of various stakeholders.
