Lumads trooped to the headquarters of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police on November 9 to protest human rights violations under the Aquino government’s counter-insurgency program Oplan Bayanihan.

The protest is part of Manilakbayan ng Mindanao 2015, a caravan initiated by various Mindanao-based people’s organizations which seeks to raise public awareness on issues faced by the Lumads.
