As President Rodrigo Duterte prepares for the entry of foreign investors in Mindanao, 1500 indigenous people flee their homes because of militarization in their communities.
In this video, the indigenous peoples or lumads in CARAGA region in Mindanao speak about their long struggle to protect their ancestral lands. They have survived many attempts of land grabbing from foreign and local investors for their natural resources.
This time, they are once again tested by AFP's rampant militarization in their communities but the lumads continue to fight for their rights even it takes another evacuation.
