Army, NPA rebels urged: Keep truce

/ 09:42 PM January 03, 2013

A tribal leader in the Sierra Madre mountain range in northern Quezon on Thursday appealed to the government and communist rebels to observe a longer ceasefire.

“Let us all give peace a chance to flourish,” said Ramcy Astoveza, an Agta leader and executive director of the Tribal Center for Development Foundation Inc.

Astoveza expressed fears that tribes in Sierra Madre would again be caught in the crossfire if rebels and soldiers resumed fighting. Delfin T. Mallari Jr., Inquirer Southern Luzon
