The Maguindanao Massacre A Year After

It’s been a year since the massacre of 57 civilians in Maguidanao shocked the whole world wherein they are brutally killed and dumped in a mass grave on a hillside above the town of Ampatuan. The whole country commemorated the so called Maguidanao massacre which until now, the families of the victims waited for the final justice of their love ones. On November 23, families of the 57 victims will participate in a motorcade that will start in General Santos City and end at the crime site, in hilly Sitio Masalay in Barangay Salman, Ampatuan town.  Aside from the motorcade, the Nov. 23 Movement will also plant 58 trees at the crime site in honor of the 58 victims of the massacre – the 58th being Reynaldo “Bebong" Momay, a photojournalist for the Tacurong City-based Midland Review whose body has yet to be recovered.

I hope that the present government will deal fairly about the case, punished the people who were involved and mastermind of the brutal killing. Let justice prevails!
