ZONES OF PEACE. Officials of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) and Lumad leaders hang a tarpaulin at the gate of UCCP-Haran compound in Davao City Thursday (Jan. 30). Their message is clear: no arms should be brought or stored inside the church places and premises. Their action came following the Jan. 25 forcible entry of bolo-wielding members of the Alamara paramilitary group into the evacuation camp that holds hundreds of Lumad who evacuated due to militarization and other rights abuses.
