However, the plot was foiled before it was even implemented, since a Filipina married to a Spanish soldier reported the plot to …        The seeds of revolution were, in fact, sown earlier in the nineteenth century when Spain’s enforced isolation of the Philippines was shattered with the opening of the country to foreign commerce and the resulting development of an export economy by non-Spanish foreign enterprises (British, American, Chinese).  Revolutionary and liberal movements in Europe and elsewhere, in addition to the persistence of friar autocratic rule, brought winds of change in the political climate in the Philippines.  The most important event which possibly made the Revolution inevitable was that of February 17, 1872, when three Filipino secular priests, leaders in the movement for the secularization (in effect, nationalization) of Philippine parishes, were executed publicly by garrote for their supposed complicity in a military mutiny at a Cavite arsenal on January 20, 1872.  By linking them with the mutiny, the Spanish administration, with the instigation of Spanish friars, found a convenient way of doing away with the troublesome priests, considered by them as filibusteros (anyone who showed any radical tendencies) for demanding clerical equality with the Spanish friars. [12], Because the Marcos administration's spending had relied so heavily on debt since Marcos' first term in the 60s,[15] the Philippines was left vulnerable when the US economy went into recession in the third quarter of 1981, forcing the Reagan administration to increase interest rates. The event led to more suspicions about the government, triggering non-cooperation among Filipinos that eventually led to outright civil disobedience.

[40], Later, helicopters manned by the 15th Strike Wing of the Philippine Air Force, led by Colonel Antonio Sotelo, were ordered from Sangley Point in Cavite (South of Manila) to head to Camp Crame. The truce failed as both sides entered the agreement in bad faith — neither was really willing to abandon hostilities but were biding time and resources to resume the armed conflict.

Early Life The Filipino people repudiated the results, asserting that Aquino was the real victor. Performers entertained the crowds, nuns and priests led prayer vigils, and people set up barricades and makeshift sandbags, trees, and vehicles in several places along EDSA and intersecting streets such as Santolan and Ortigas Avenue.

After its recogni… The Philippine Revolution The Cry of Pugadlawin. The Philippine political revolution is of recent origin, to be found, so to speak, as late as the opening of the Suez Canal in November 1869. Many similar revolutions have followed since then, taking the Philippine example of nonviolent regime change, such as that in East Germany and many other former Soviet Bloc countries. [41] The station was targeted because it had proven to be a valuable communications tool for the people supporting the rebels, keeping them informed of government troop movements and relaying requests for food, medicine, and supplies.[40].

[5], The majority of the demonstrations took place on a long stretch of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, more commonly known by its acronym EDSA, in Metro Manila from February 22–25, 1986.        After over three centuries of Spanish colonial rule characterized by unenlightened government, outright exploitation of the Indios (the term used to apply to the indigenous population of Filipinos), bleated and half-hearted attempts at reform, and on the part of the governed, countless sporadic and isolated revolts and other forms of resistance, the Philippine Revolution exploded on August 23, 1896, in the event that is  commemorated as the “Cry of Pugadlawin.”  Located in the outskirts of Manila, there assembled on that day members of a secret revolutionary society known as the Katipunan (Kataas-taasan Kagalang-galang na Katipunan nang mga Anak ng Bayan — Highest and Most Respectable Society of the Sons of the People, founded in July 1892), led by its founder, Andres Bonifacio, and there tore up their cedulas (identification receipts issued for payment of taxes) as a symbol of their determination to take up arms against Spain. Jose Rizal,a reformer who inspired Bonifacio but did not really approve of the Revolution,was executed in Bagumbayan(present-day Rizal Park) on December 30 of the same year.        The revolutionary society, Katipunan, was established, on July 7, 1892, by Filipinos who had given up hope that the Spanish government would administer the affairs of Filipinas in the interests of its subjects — with justice and dignity.  A secret association patterned after Freemasonry and the Liga Filipina (a mutual-aid society founded by the ilustrado Jose Riza on July 3, 1892), it recruited members in the suburbs of Manila and in the provinces of Central Luzon.  By the time of the outbreak of the Revolution in August 1896, membership in the Katipunan has soared to about 30,000, which included some women.  The Revolution broke out prematurely on August 23, 1896 because ofthe untimely discovery by a Spanish friar, on August 19, of the existence of the revolutionary society.  The immediate result ofthe outbreak of the Revolution was the institution of a reign of terror by the Spanish authorities in an attempt to frighten the population into submission. The Philippine Revolution which begun in 1896 saw the rise of the demands and grievances of the people of the Philippines against the Spanish colonial rulers of that time. The Philippines had been governed from Mexico since 1565, with colonial administrative costs sustained by subsidies from the galleon trade.
