We, Mindanao Peace, Social Justice, and Human Rights advocates stand with the People in Ukraine, Russia, and the world who do not want this war.

Putin’s military aggression after his announcement last February 21, 2022 is not just an attack on Ukraine and its people but an attack to freedom, peace, and self-determination of a sovereign nation. The attack forced Ukrainians to flee their homes, crossed borders, and have already claimed hundreds of lives.

We strongly believe that the fate of Ukraine should be decided of and by the Ukrainians themselves and not by Putin nor NATO or other imperialist powers.

We join the communities of faith in prayer to end the hostilities in Ukraine and in any part of the world.

We call on world leaders to unanimously demand Russian troops’ withdrawal from Ukraine and end immediately this insane war.

We call on the Philippine government to stand for the global peace and sovereignty of every nation like Ukraine and demand the same call for Russian troop withdrawal and end the siege in Ukraine.

Let us Mobilize in all fronts and forms to show our Solidarity to Ukrainians and all nations experiencing the same aggression and foreign power interference.

To all nations and Humanitarian organizations, response to the displaced population is also urgent.




NOT War nor Putin or NATO, USA or other imperialist powers!
