"Bangsamoro," is an old term which just recently had been mainstreamed in the Philippines as a supposed solution to the 4-decade long conflict in Mindanao. The Draft Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro was recently signed on October 15, 2012. This laid the steps towards achieving peace in Mindanao.
PeaceTech, a non-profit organization which uses technology to bring people from different groups together across large distances recently launched its "I AM FOR PEACE, I SUPPORT BANGSAMORO" video campaign.
This campaign is a support for the I AM FOR PEACE CAMPAIGN of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP).
This is a video campaign to support the 2012 Framework Agreement on Bangsamoro signed last October 15, 2012, mobilizing the grassroots to promote understanding of the Framework as an initial step towards inclusive and constitutional solution to the problem in Mindanao.

With the 2012 Framework Agreement on Bangsamoro signed last October 15, 2012, mobilizing the grassroots to promote understanding of the Framework as an initial step towards inclusive and constitutional solution to the problem in Mindanao is critically needed to sustain the Peace Process. With this, we are launching a project called "I AM FOR PEACE VIDEO CAMPAIGN" which aims to mobilize support to the peace process through the use of social media. PeaceTech is hoping that through this campaign, we will be able to mobilize supporters of peace to upload videos sharing their personal statement on the success of the framework.
To encourage netizens to upload their own video, PeaceTech will produce a promotional video of the said campaign that will raise awareness on the "2012 Framework Agreement" and show the support of Filipino people from different walks of life.
