Sobriety called among Kalingas
by Jane B. Cadalig

CALL FOR PEACE -- Mayor Mauricio Domogan convened the leaders of Kalinga groups and organizations in the City of Baguio including members of the Baguio City Police Office who are from Kalinga to appeal for sobriety after news of a brewing tribal war in Kalinga following shooting incidences in the province surfaced. -- Ryan Mangusan

City Mayor Mauricio Domogan called for sobriety amidst fear of a violent dispute that might victimize innocent Kalinga students and in Baguio.

Domogan made the appeal for fear that the killing of two members of the Lubo ethnic group by suspects belonging to the Tulgao group in Bulanao, Tabuk City, might escalate into violence and affect innocent Kalinga students in Baguio.

The mayor convened on July 2 Kalinga groups in Baguio and sought their recommendations on how to protect Kalingas who are residents, and who are pursuing their studies in the city.

Suspects belonging to the Tulgao ethnic group have reportedly shot innocent siblings from the Lubo group in a bar in Bulanao, Tabuk City on July 1.

Lawyer George Dumawing, a native of Kalinga, asked the Lubo ethnic group in Baguio to plead their members to remain calm and not seek revenge.

“You are in the best position to ask your town mates not to resort to violence because we, Kalingas in Baguio, are living in peace and we want to maintain it that way,” he told members of the Lubo groups who attended the meeting called by the mayor.

Other Kalinga elders and professionals, including Kalinga organizations based in Baguio and Benguet, have supported the call for those affected by the killing to maintain rationality.

Domogan expressed hope that officials and the ethnic groups involved will settle their differences in Kalinga to spare those who are in the city, especially the students, from violence.

He said in the past, students who are in the city became victims when violence erupted among the Kalingas.

“We are calling on those involved to settle their differences in Kalinga and not bring violence here in Baguio because in the past, students or those who are not directly involved in the dispute became the victims of those seeking revenge,” Domogan said.

He added that Baguio and Benguet have been declared peace zones through a covenant that was signed among ethnic groups, including representatives from Kalinga, in 1993.

“Baguio City and Benguet have been declared as peace zones since 1993 so I hope this will be respected. There is no place for violence here,” he said.
