That we, the Bangsamoro Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the Bangsamoro Homeland, subscribing to peaceful and democratic means of resolving the decades Bangsamoro issue towards final attainment of Bangsamoro aspiration for self-determination, identity and governance.

That it is our common belief that all the substantive signed peace agreements entered into by and between the Philippine government and the Moro Liberation Organizations (MNLF and MILF) were legitimate negotiated political settlement of the Bangsamoro issue that if fully implemented shall provide justice to historical injustices done against the Bangsamoro people, as such the agreement deserve high respect and its implementation shall not be procrastinated by any of the branches of the Philippine Government.

COME NOW, we the Bangsamoro leaders of the different CSOs in Mindanao after conducting consultation among ourselves, we strongly agreed to have the following declaration:

First, we are unanimous in our view, to help push the present Mindanao peace process. We unite ourselves and establish a common stand and direction towards final resolution of the Mindanao conflict;

Second, we subscribe to the fact that in unity there is strength, blessings and success. Therefore in our capacity, we help and support to the fullest the newly created Ad Hoc Committee on Unification and Reconciliation of the Central Committee of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) whose primary aim is for the people’s unification and reconciliation towards peaceful and acceptable resolution of the Bangsamoro issue that will finally end the decades Mindanao conflict;

Third, we strongly adhere to the sentiment of the MNLF and the MILF that a diluted Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) which is inimical to the full and faithful implementation of both the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bnagsamoro (CAB) and the 1996 Final Peace Agreement is unacceptable to them, to us and to the Bangsamoro people;

Finally, for the sake of just and long lasting peace and for the benefit and general welfare of the people, we oblige ourselves to pray sincerely to the most powerful Almighty GOD that Congress of the Philippine Government shall protect, preserve and immediately enact into law the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) agreed version of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) that will implement in letter and spirit the Comprehensive Agreement on Bangsamoro (CAB).

Done this 30th day of November 2015 at Barangay Darapanan, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao.
