The Bangsamoro freedom fighters under the banner of the MNLF - recognized by the OIC as the sole legitimate representative of the Bangsamoro people.

Dear President Barack Obama,


The United States of America (USA) under your leadership are so proud of declaring to humanity that Human Rights are of paramount importance to American idealism and history. But this is not true to the sad case of the Bangsamoro people of Mindanao under Philippine colonialism for a quite number of decades now. The injustice most foul committed by America against the oppressed Bangsamoro people was conspiring with the megalomaniac and greedy Filipino politicians, like Manuel L. Quezon and gang, in colonizing the Bangsamoro homeland of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan (MINSUPALA) in 1946. The ugly political conspiracy had literally suppressed the fundamental Human Rights of the colonized Bangsamoro people for freedom and national self-determination. Worst, this conspiratorial political ploy has resulted now to the more than four decades Filipino-Moro war in Mindanao. Thus, how can the United States of America now under your leadership help end the Mindanao war?  

The Philippines-Bangsamoro war in Mindanao is marked by naked Human Rights abuses against the Muslim and Highlander natives, who have to suffer miserably repeated massacres perpetrated by the colonial Philippine military occupation soldiers in the battle ground. There is no end to the brutal killings because there is still no permanent solution to the Mindanao conflict except for artificial and cosmetic remedial measures conceived by Philippine colonialism and other conspiring NGOs during peace talks. The best thing the Manila government can come up with to end presumably the Filipino-Moro war in Mindanao is to establish a farcical autonomous government, which is just a mere "comfort room" of the political animals in Malacanang Palace to be used for vote rigging and monetary down-loading.

 

Simply said, the worst Human Rights abuses committed in the world is being done by the Filipino colonizers against the colonised Bangsamoro people of Mindanao. And America was originally a conspiring and willing party to accomplish this heinous end. Had the US Congress listened sincerely to the wisdom of then Congressman Francis Bacon of New York in 1936 to maintain the independence of Bangsamoro (Moro Nation), the wanton Human Rights abuses committed against the Bangsamoro people of Mindanao under Philippine colonialism could have been surely avoided?

 

Now, when will America apologize to the Bangsamoro people of Mindanao and help amend the injustice most foul committed against them? -rrr-bfs

Dear Reynaldo:

 
 
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.  Many Americans have written to me about human rights around the world, and I appreciate your perspective.
 
The United States was founded on the principles of freedom and equality, and our history is marked with triumphs and struggles in fulfilling these timeless ideals.  Our task is not finished, and protecting these core values is a shared obligation and a priority for my Administration.  No nation should be silent in the fight against human rights violations.  When innocents in places like Sudan, Syria, and the Democratic Republic of Congo are raped, murdered, or tortured, it is a stain on our collective conscience.  I am committed to reinvigorating Americaís leadership on a range of international human rights issues.
 
As the struggle for human rights continues around the world, we have witnessed an extraordinary change in the Middle East and North Africa.  Country by country, people have risen up across this region to demand their human rights; too often, these calls for change have been answered by violence.  The United States opposes the use of violence and repression against these men and women.  Rather, we support a set of universal rights, including free speech, the freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of religion, equality for men and women under the rule of law, and the right of people to choose their own leaders.  We also support political and economic reform in the Middle East and North Africa that can meet the legitimate aspirations of ordinary people throughout the region.  While change may not come easily, America will stand squarely on the side of those who are reaching for their rights, knowing their success will bring about a world that is more peaceful, more stable, and more just. 
  
As you may know, the United States has joined the United Nations Human Rights Council and is working to make this body as effective as possible.  My Administration will also advocate for human rights in other international settings.  In our relations with other countries, the issue of human rights will continue to be raised as clearly, persistently, and effectively as possible.  Among other things, we will continue to promote accountability for mass atrocities; respect for the rights of minorities and women; freedom of association, speech, and religion; and freedom for people to live as they choose and love whom they chose. 
 
Our commitment to human rights is an essential element of American foreign policy and serves our national security.  Through it, we will help to shut down torture chambers, replace tyranny with good governance, and enlist free nations in the common cause of liberty.  To learn more about my Administrationís human rights agenda, please visit www.HumanRights.govor www.WhiteHouse.gov/CPo.  Thank you, again, for writing.

 
Sincerely,

 
Barack Obama
