Asserting and Defending People's Rights, Exercising People's Sovereignty
The matter of collective rights, held in common by social groups and nations, as opposed to individuals, is “premised on the concept of humans as social beings, who belong to distinct social groups and whose interactions are greatly shaped by their groups.” Especially in a country like the Philippines, where collective action is often the only weapon that laborers and peasants can wield against capitalists and landowners, the notion of people’s rights is truly empowering.

Igniting International Solidarity for the Lumad: Reflections from the International Solidarity Mission in Kitaotao, Bukidnon

As a summer intern at IBON International, I had the opportunity to enter the world of the Lumad, the non-muslim, “native” or “indigenous” peoples in the lands of the southern Philippines who are directly experiencing the grievous effects of a militarized state. I, along with other IBON International representatives, served as delegates in this year’s International Solidarity Mission (ISM) in Mindanao as part of the larger 2016 International Conference for Peoples’ Rights in the Philippines (ICPRP). As a Filipina American with family roots in Mindanao, attending the ISM was a personal journey into the impacts of globalization on the lives of the marginalized, exploited communities in the Global South.
