 Yup very inhuman. These are the doings of the AMPATUAN CLAN who want the Mindanao people to instill fear towards the people.. The government will not do anything about this because this AMPATUAN family has connections in order for them to win in the upcoming election. I hope WAR will rise against this people! WAR is the only answer and nothing else!

Feedback: Maguindanao mass execution is more than political.

 It has started. You can blame our elections but my opinion is they were here to steal our coconuts, hired mercenaries as well as children from families investing in the biofuel industries to create conflict and fear in the area.

RE: Maguindanao Massacre

 I hope the government and media as well can do something to shed a light in this brutal massacre in Mindanao. I grew up in a neighboring province which is South Cotabato. Though my province is a Christian area, we were never exempted from the brutality of the muslims.
