Lessons from Zamboanga siege


On September 9, 2013, Zamboanga City became ground zero of the clash between government troops and a faction of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF). The rebels wanted to proclaim the city as the Bangsamoro Republic. The fierce battle lasted 19 days, leaving over 200 killed and thousands displaced as a massive part of the city went down in flames.

Two and a half years after the seige, KampanyaSerye revisits Asia's Latin City to find out what lessons were learned from the traumatic incident, and how the results of the coming elections may help ensure that it will never happen again.
