Beyond the Bullets - Smuggling - ..Volunteers of the Bantay Ceasefire peace organization load rice into a pickup truck in Cotabato City on May 28, 2009. The truck will be used to smuggle the rice past military checkpoints and into Datu Piang, where it will be distributed among evacuees.  The military has consistently blocked aid from getting to the camps because they fear that some of it may end up with Moro Islamic Liberation Front combatants.  This has left the tens of thousands of evacuees in the area without food or medicine for weeks at a time.
