The Philippine revolution, the first of its kind in Asia, opened the floodgates of liberation against Western imperialism. More than physical bondage, it aimed to break the chains of mental captivity.
Thursday, December 29, Jose Rizal: Pride of the Malay Race By: For one, with the exception of Brazil, the Philippines and many Latin American countries, especially Mexico, were colonies of Spain for centuries. For the Filipinos, whose 7, islands now constituting their country was named after the much-married Spanish king, Felipe II — he was married four times — their association with the Spaniards go back to March 16, when the Portuguese navigator, Ferdinand Magellan, with his starving and emaciated sailors, sailing under the Spanish flag, landed on Homonhon off the coast of Samar, the Philippines third largest island.
And for generations thereafter, they were going to be governed by Spain through the Viceroy of Mexico.
What are some of the more lasting results of this association with Mexico and Latin America? For one, the Manila-Acapulco Galleon trade lasted for two centuries and a half.
There is a town called Mexico in the Philippines, a name chosen by Mexican immigrants to that place. When the Mexicans had wrested their independence from Spain, the revolutionary government expressed its solidarity with the Filipino nationalists.
University of the Philippines history professor Jaime Veneracion quotes a secret document shared among the Mexican revolutionaries: Should the Philippines succeed in gaining her independence from Spain, we must felicitate her warmly and form an alliance of amity and commerce with her as a sister nation.
Moreover, we must resume the intimate Mexico-Philippine relations, as they were during the halcyon days of Acapulco-Manila trade. Of course, they failed, were captured and shot by firing squad.
Centuries of interaction has resulted also in many fruits, vegetables and plants being brought to the Philippines from Latin America. Filipino historian Carlos Quirino cites the following: And from the Filipino immigrants to Mexico, there are claims of a Filipino being one of the founders of the City of Los Angeles.
In more contemporary times, the Filipinos in California, who like their Mexican amigos were consigned to working in the back-breaking grape, asparagus and other agricultural fields of Califonria, were fated to join a common cause.
The Filipinos led by some of their more audacious and courageous leaders such as Philip Vera Cruz, who was instrumental in organizing a union, the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee AWOCinitiated the great grape strike which reverberated around the world.
Today, there is a holiday in California in honor of Cesar Chavez. Sadly, there are not very many Filipinos in America who are aware that a Filipino leader in the California great grape strike, Philip Vera Cruz, ever existed. But it is in the area of language and culture that Mexico and Latin America on one hand, and the Philippines, on the other hand, are intricately tied together.
Precisely because of the common heritage with Latin America, a generation of Filipino students were mandated to study two years of Spanish in high school followed by 24 units -- eight courses -- in college. Escaping from the friars in the Philippines, he went to Europe, where he continued his studies in Madrid, Paris, and Heidelberg.
Because of his writings, he inspired the Philippine Revolution which ended Spanish rule in the Philippines. He was accused of treason. The charges were baseless.Note: Citations are based on reference standards.
