Dear Manileños and privileged metropolis children in all places else,
I grew up seeing navy checkpoints dotting our route from Cagayan de Oro to Surigao. We realized early on to affiliate the presence of the navy with security because our native information too usually would report of this armed group or that terrorist faction making some type of mess. Although these skirmishes have been usually not coated by your national media, we Mindanaoans realized early on that our Northern counterparts didn’t actually care about us and our authorities solely gave us perfunctory handouts. We realized to be robust and to outlive.
But we’re additionally bored with having to cope with these armed teams. We need an actual finish to this. That’s why we voted for the President.
So if we’ve got to sacrifice somewhat of our private freedom, if we’ve got to stick to a curfew, if we’ve got to cooperate with the navy, WE ARE PREPARED. We’ve carried out this one million instances earlier than.
You assume your complaints are saving us? They’re not. You solely need to really feel validated for supposedly “caring” however I wager that earlier than all of this, you knew subsequent to nothing about Mindanao and its individuals.
Kaya don’t us. We’re drained and your complaints are pissing us off.
Maia (GenSan-born, raised in Cagayan de Oro; daughter of Mindanao)
PS: I nonetheless have household and mates in Mindanao. Despite the risk, they know precisely what to do at this level. Unlike you whiners, they’re as robust as bolstered metal. No complaints and fear-mongering from them, simply the identical previous refusal to be intimidated by terrorists.
