Show Summary Details


This chapter considers the armed separatist rebellion in Cotabato and its immediate aftermath from the perspective of its rank-and-file supporters, describing the Bangsamoro Rebellion as experienced in and viewed from Campo Muslim, an urban poor community with a concentrated and self-consciously Muslim population. It suggests that the ordinary fighters and followers of the separatist rebellion held views and produced symbols of the armed struggle which differed markedly from those promoted by movement leaders.

Keywords: armed separatist rebellion; Cotabato; Bangsamoro Rebellion; Campo Muslim; armed struggle; rank and file
