Maladeg: Zone of Peace
A TMR Photo Essay Contest Winner.
This essay is not currently available online.
“This project explores a zone of peace, the village of Maladeg, in Lanao del Sur, Phillipines. Outside the borders of Maladeg, Muslim rebels continue to fight for a Moro republic in spite of armed opposition from a government bent on retaining sovereignty over the southern islands. Violence and government corruption have made the region virtually inaccessible and underdeveloped even though it is rich in natural resources. Furthermore, conflict tradition among the native Maranao-Muslims, called rido, or clan wars, has also plagued the region, perpetuating the cause for rebellion and secession.”
