Reparation Program

 

 EcoWEB, with the support of the GIZ – CPS, has  been working in transforming the resource-based  conflict in Lumbac in the past several years and in  empowering the communities of Kolambugan to  secure peace and to sustain development.

 Last Saturday August 2, 2014 we had our  Reparation Program which entitled " ANG PAKIG-  ULI,  PAG ALIM UG PAGTAPOS SA MGA PANAG-  BANGI"  for the 11 Lumbac land Conflict Victims  which was  held at the Peace Center, Brgy.  Lumbac,  Kolambugan, Lanao Del Norte. The 11  families we’re  there to impart and honor their loved  ones. And  with the participation of our partners;  the LGU  together with the Mayor and the Vice  Mayor of  kolambugan and our visitors from other  CSO’s. And  of course the Lumbac Community. 

 Reparation is a principle of law that has existed for  centuries, referring to the obligation of a wrongdoing party to redress the damage caused to the injured party. Under international law, "reparation must, as far as possible, wipe out all the consequences of the illegal act and re-establish the situation which would, in all probability, have existed if that act had not been committed.” 


This community-based reparation program to be facilitated by EcoWEB, will focus on the collective memories of those who perished in the conflict, the community and its partners’ determination at reconciliation and peacebuilding and the ongoing effort to institutionalize peacebuilding mechanisms and structures in the municipality of Kolambugan and in bringing together communities for transitional justice within the context of the Mindanao experience.
