Reading the
"Proclamation of
the Philippine
Independence"
 Abuses by the Spanish authorities, including the Civil
Guard and clergy
 Unequal protection under the law
 Unjust deportations and lack of due process
 Desire for freedom and self-determination
Justifications for Revolution: A Glimpse
into Filipino Sentiment
 The proclamation paints a picture of
Spanish oppression, highlighting
abuses like arbitrary arrests and the
silencing of dissent. This fueled the
revolutionary spirit, driven by a
yearning for equality and justice.
 References to key events like the Cavite Mutiny and Rizal's
execution
 Focus on Aguinaldo's leadership and the Magdalo faction
 Omission of Bonifacio and the Katipunan's early role
Historical Narrative: Shaping the
Memory of the Struggle
 The document selectively narrates history, emphasizing
events that legitimize Aguinaldo's government. Notably,
Bonifacio and the Katipunan, crucial to the revolution's
initial stages, are sidelined. This reflects the "politics of the
victors."
 White triangle: Represents the Katipunan and its fight for freedom
 Three stars: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, the main island groups
 Eight rays of the sun: The eight provinces that first declared war on Spain
 Red and blue: Adapted from the US flag, signifying gratitude for support
The Symbolism of the Philippine Flag:
Beyond Red, White, and Blue
 The flag's design holds deeper meaning than its
colors might suggest. The white triangle honors
the Katipunan, while the stars and sun symbolize
the extent of the revolution. The red and blue,
however, reveal a complex relationship with the
United States.
 The document omits the agrarian crisis, a major concern for peasants
 Focuses on middle-class leaders, neglecting the broader revolutionary
base
 Serves as a reminder to critically analyze primary sources
Beyond the Document: Nuances and
Hidden Truths
 The proclamation offers a limited perspective, neglecting
the agrarian issues that deeply affected many Filipinos.
This highlights the importance of considering multiple
sources and viewpoints for a well-rounded historical
understanding.
 Re-examining historical documents reveals biases
and hidden truths
 Studying multiple sources provides a more nuanced
understanding of the past
 The Philippine independence story is complex and
multifaceted
Conclusion: Unveiling the Layers of
History
 By critically analyzing primary sources like the
"Proclamation of the Philippine Independence,"
we uncover layers of history and gain a more
comprehensive understanding of the past. The
path to independence was intricate, shaped by
various actors and perspectives. Recognizing
these complexities allows us to move forward
with a richer appreciation of our history.
