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.

Your support continues to give us hope and sustained strength to work in solidarity with one another.
