Education is an Act of Justice

About Solution

The Bangsamoro narrative of historical injustice is based on an experience of grievances that extends over generations, particularly with respect to land dispossession and its adverse effects upon their welfare as a community as well as their experience of widespread and serious human rights violations.

It has identified key issues that needed attention:

  1. Historical memory
  2. Impunity and accountability
  3. Marginalization through Land dispossession
  4. Healing and Reconciliation

Moreover, the Transitional Justice for Reconciliation Committee (TJRC) came to the conclusion that these issues are the result of three interlocking phenomena—violence, impunity, and neglect—which, in turn, are rooted in the imposition of a monolithic Filipino identity and Philippine State by force on multiple ethnic groups in Mindanao and the Sulu archipelago that saw themselves as already preexisting nations and nation-states.”

“Education is an Act of Justice!” through a Virtual Reality platform will develop alternative narratives and critical thinking to deliver the following:

  1. To ensure that the next generation knows that incidents happened in the past and learns not to repeat them. This means documenting the stories, raising awareness and if necessary build landmarks and memorials.
  2. Respect and recognize the identify, sacred lands and territories of its indigenous peoples.
  3. Recognition of its historical sites in the Bangsamoro for the next generation.
  4. Promote community-based human rights education for all.
  5. Develop dialogue spaces between Moro and indigenous peoples to share common stories, cultural practices, and traditions towards healing.
  6. Include stories of men and women heroes and culture in the Philippine National historical narrative.
  7. Ensure the efficient delivery of culture and gender sensitive services at the community level.
