Moro struggle: Martial law

Martial Law gave rise to a new revolutionary movement led by the youth. The Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF). They continued the Moro struggle for independence. A war unsued between the MNLF and the AFP. The war was disastrous. About 150,000 to 200,000 lives were lost and the value of destroyed properties was in billions. The urban areas were safe but people there had miserable lives. There are no permanent jobs and slept in crowded areas. On the other hand, the MNLF and Bangsamoro considered the war as an initial victory.
