The lumad group marked October Indigenous Peoples Month with a rally at various government agencies ending at the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP). The group challenge the Aquino government to stop the sell-out of Mindanao's last frontiers to large-scale mining and big businesses, and to end militarization in their territories.
