The Jabidah Massacre
Season 1, Ep. 12
The Philippines is a country rich in culture and history. That history goes far back and is characterized by both pre-colonial achievements, 300 plus years of Spanish rule and post-colonial turmoil. A lot of the problems the Philippines still experiences today have their roots in our colonial past.The Jabidah Massacre is no different. But apart from its roots in our colonial past, the Jabidah Massacre is a story of an overly ambitious and yet morally questionable government, of an ethnic group being deceived for selfish reasons and a historical claim to a piece of land that, arguably, should probably just be left alone.As a result of this massacre, not only did the Philippines see a weakening of our relations with an important Southeast Asian neighbor, but a worsening of internal relations with our Muslim Filipino brothers and sisters, as well. And yet some individuals still believe that the massacre never happened.Listen now to know a bit more about this historic crime that changed the course of Philippine history in a substantial way.Please note that this is the final episode of this season. Season 2 will be launched soon.
