The so-called framework agreement will be signed at the presidential palace in Manila on Monday.
"We are a big part of this historic event,” said Mariel Andrea Gardiola, networking and liaison officer of the Mindanao Peoples’ Caucus (MPC), which organized the caravan.
MPC secretary-general, Mary Ann Arnado, called on all of Mindanao’s political leaders to support the framework agreement including the more critical task of implementing it.
Organizers of the caravan expect to arrive in Manila on Sunday afternoon ahead of Monday’s signing.
