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.
