One for posterity

Lumad students from various schools for evacuees have their photo taken during the Citizens’ Disaster Response Center’s 35th anniversary celebration at the University of the Philippines Diliman on Wednesday. The students said aside from natural disasters, they also fear the supposed militarization of their communities due to the continuing martial law in Mindanao, even as the Department of Education in the Davao region recently ordered the closure of all 55 Lumad schools operated by Salugpongan Ta'Tanu Igkanogon Community Learning Center.
