This website is dedicated to academic discussions about the people of Bangsamoro. It was conceptualized by students of section TFX4 of Kasaysayan 1 class, 2nd Semester, Academic Year 2005-2006, University of the Philippines Diliman. This site is in partial fulfillment of the requirements of Dr. Jaime Veneracion of the Department of History of the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy.
The Aquino government attempted to negotiate with the MILF. The focus was also the Tripoli Agreement. But before any agreement could be made, the new Philippine Constitution was ratified. Again the talks break down. The constitution provided a commission to draft an Organic Act that would shape the autonomous government in the region. This will serve as the legal basis for the creation of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). Four of Thirteen provinces voted to join which is far from what the Tripoli Agreement provides.
