state 0 Why do people rebel You can t give a rational argument and these rebellions do not seem very logical 0 Rise of Mestizo nationalism class I Mix of Chinese and Spanish I Filipino is a male language and there weren t barriers between people from different backgrounds I Contemporary significance if you look at the leadership of the Philippines is Chinese mestizo In many ways the Chinese mestizo have become fully Filipino I If you look at the economy if they have a co or ko at the end of their names they are from Chinese descendants 0 They wanted to give every Filipino a Spanish name 0 How did the Chinese Mestizo class become so dominant overtime I In Spain s contest they used the idea that they would make all of China catholic They also inaugurated an important trade between Melila and China as well Spaniards were not very lucky but they were spectacular successful with their father mother and local cultures Became very catholic 0 Spanish colonial law gave people a particular status very specific role to play in local societies 0 See the rise of an increasingly large Mestizo Chinese class they were involved in merchant activity and trade as well 0 This group had to compete in terms of economics with people that were Chinese until 1762 British take over Manila and Chinese liked the British after the British left Spain killed all Chinese in the Philippines They no longer had economic competition and the Chinese mestizos are taking advantage of this open In this vacuum the Chinese Mestizos thrived by 1774 they are about quarter of a million in social class

Ios Rizal often thought as the father of Philippine independence He was a selfproclaimed ilustradato become an eye doctor in Spain came back to practice the profession He was a reformist and due to pressure and invisibility they broke with the Spanish The Spanish made the mistake of arresting him and executing him This created a strong nationalist movement Spanish executed three priests who had the audacity to argue for the permission of Filipino state I They rise up and challenge the Spanish and this happens right at the same time as the USA goes to war with Cuba a that point Americans stumble to the Filipinos I This republic did suceeed slow process of rise nationalism defeat of eye with the national leadership Vietnam amp resistance 0 O 0 French with help from the Spanish

Buddhist profits in the south it has happened into the 20th century and even actually happens now Rebellion drew a large popular following in far south of Vietnam It traces its origins to a very young
