In the occasion of the International Women’s Day, the Katribu again calls for the resumption of peace talks and a stop to the all out war by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). KATRIBU condemns the AFP for its maniacal rampage in the countryside against indigenous communities.
a pandaigdigang araw ng mga kababaihan, pinapangunahan ng BAI Indigenous Women’s Network ang panawagan ng mga katutubong kababaihan para itigil ang all out war at ituloy ang usapang pangkapayapaan. Walang humpay na karahasan, panunupil at sobrang kahirapan ang nanatiling sitwasyon ng mga kababaihang katutubo.

March 8 is International Women’s Day. It is time for us to remember the more than a hundred women who were burned to death in New York City many years ago and to promise that never again women would be treated this way. Women were hired to work in a garment factory in that American city and the owner had to padlock them inside the factory for fear that they might steal. Unfortunately, there was a fire and the women workers inside were mercilessly turned into ashes.
